Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Systems Near Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and Edmond
How a vapor barrier can transform the health of your home
Without a vapor barrier or proper waterproofing, many crawl spaces become moldy, foul-smelling areas that homeowners avoid at all costs. Many of them flood, and they're often filled with debris left behind from when the house was constructed. In more extreme cases, they can be rotting structures with rodents, animals, and other pests living within.
At Vesta Foundation Solutions, we’re here to change the way you see your crawl space. Your crawl space impacts the health and stability of the rest of your home, as its air circulates through upper levels and crawl space supports bear the weight of the floors above. A moldy, foul-smelling crawl space means an allergen-ridden, foul-smelling home. It's our job to make sure that your crawlspace is transformed into a cleaner, drier, healthier, more energy-efficient, and usable space.

How to install a crawl space vapor barrier
Sealing your crawl space doors and vents stop the cycle of cold, humidity, and moisture entering from the outside air. However, water can still enter your crawlspace in many ways.
The next step is to eliminate any sources of flooding in your crawl space by installing a crawl space drain and sump pump system. This eliminates flooding water from your crawl space, but moisture can still enter directly through the concrete and floor in the form of water vapor.
If your crawl space is sagging or damaged by prolonged mold and rot, the next step is to install crawl space support jacks to help restore your structure. This will help your floors stay even and stop any structural sagging upstairs.
To stop moisture from passing through your floors and porous concrete walls, a crawl space vapor barrier should be installed. A durable liner will allow for servicemen to use the space without damage while transforming your crawl space into usable storage space. This is also the best time to install crawl space insulation on your walls or floors. Installing crawl space drainage matting underneath the crawl space liner will help direct water to the drainage system and sump pump.
Installing an energy-efficient, self-draining crawl space dehumidifier will keep your space dry. Our crawl space dehumidifier system includes a filter that removes particles from the air as small as 2 microns. This ensures that your crawl space is protected from mold, dust mites, and mildew damage — permanently!
