Why a Moisture Barrier Works
A moisture barrier consists of a durable 20-millimeter-thick liner that moisture can't get through. Blocking all moisture reduces the chances of structural damage to your crawl space and keeps musty odors from trapped water out of your home.
Moisture barriers have the added benefit of helping your crawl space maintain its temperature. Keeping the temperature in your crawl space consistent can reduce your heating and cooling costs, which is just another way a moisture barrier can help you save money.
A sealed crawl space can also help you feel more confident using your space for extra storage. With a moisture barrier, you don't have to worry about your belongings being ruined by excess water. It's an excellent way to free up some extra room and make the most of your home’s square footage.
Before and After Installing Moisture Barrier
- Moisture that enters the crawl space through vents and soil can ruin insulation and also encourage mold growth and wood rot.
- Covering the crawl space floor and walls with a heavy-duty moisture barrier eliminates moisture problems, makes the living space more comfortable and cuts heating and cooling costs.
