A crawl space vapor barrier is a durable plastic sheet that covers crawl space walls and floors. 

This sheet manages excess moisture by preventing the water vapor penetration that causes mold growth, wood rot, and pest infestations. 

Foundation Systems of Michigan employs CrawlSeal™, a robust vapor barrier that shields your home from the detrimental effects of moisture. This barrier secures the crawl space and enhances overall home health.

These issues suggest excessive crawl space moisture. Early intervention is crucial to safeguard your home’s health and structure. Contact a crawl space expert immediately upon noticing the problem signs. 

Is Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Installation Necessary? 

Yes, installing a crawl space vapor barrier is essential if the area contains moisture or humidity. Neglecting to add a vapor barrier allows crawl space moisture infiltration and other problems.

Foundation Systems of Michigan’s encapsulation installation protects your home, seals out moisture, and creates a dry, clean area.

We advise against DIY installations, as standard liners from retail outlets are insufficient and may lead to further damage and costly repairs. Additionally, crawl spaces may present health and safety hazards, making it safer and more effective to rely on skilled professionals with the appropriate tools, training, and safety equipment.
