    How Does A Vapor Barrier Help?

    Essentially, vapor barriers are installed to halt moisture from spreading and resist the passage of air into your home. Installing vapor barriers in your home can help to save you from many issues in the long term. Not only can vapor barriers improve the overall air quality within your house, but they also help to save you money on heating and cooling costs. 

    Additional benefits attributed to the installation of a crawl space vapor barrier include:

    • Deters moisture from entering your home
    • Removes Mold
    • Reduces electrical/wiring hazards
    • Improves ventilation throughout your home

    Crawl Space & Vapor Barrier Installation

    Our dedicated crawl space services team makes vapor barrier installation quick and easy. Though the process may seem complicated to most, we offer the best crawl space services in Seattle because we know what we are doing.

    Dry out the crawl space: At Attic Projects, we use professional grade fans and dehumidifiers to remove wet materials and pump out any standing water. This first step is essential in ensuring our crawl space services team is working with a clean slate, and your vapor barrier will remain effective. 

    Clean: Just as important as the first step, we remove all debris and other unnecessary items. Additionally, we fill any holes that have previously allowed moisture or air inside.

    Measure: We measure your crawl space to guarantee your crawl space vapor barrier is an exact fit and does not leave any room for moisture, drafts, or pests. 

    Install vapor barrier and insulation: Once we have determined the best fit for your vapor barrier, we will install it along with new insulation, ultimately lowering heating and cooling costs.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    I just bought a home; should I install a vapor barrier?

    Yes! When you buy a home, this is a great time to inspect your crawl space and install a vapor barrier. By installing a vapor barrier early on, you can prevent moisture from building up in your crawl space and prevent some unwanted issues down the road. This can save you a lot of money in the future.

    How effective are vapor barriers?

    Vapor barriers are very effective at keeping unnecessary moisture and water leaks out of your crawl space. Without a vapor barrier protecting your crawl space, you could end up with rotting wood, damaged insulation, foul odors, mold, mildew, and fungi. A vapor barrier can protect your crawl space from a lot of unnecessary damage. Plus, when you hire Attic Projects to install your vapor barrier, all work is insured, and you get a 5-year warranty on your vapor barrier.

    There seems to be a ton of moisture in my crawl space, how can I stop moisture from getting in?

    The answer is to install a vapor barrier. Crawl spaces are notorious for having excessive moisture and a vapor barrier has the ability to stop the moisture from entering your crawl space. This can help prevent mold and bacteria from growing and contaminating the rest of your home. When moisture enters your crawl space it can lead to damaged insulation, rotting wood, mold, mildew, and fungi. Additionally, rodents and other types of pests may find a moist crawl space the perfect place to move it and wreak havoc.

    How do I know if I need a vapor barrier?

    If you are experiencing any of the following signs, it means you have a moisture problem that could be solved through installation of a vapor barrier: standing water, respiratory issues, mold/fungi growth, musty odors, rotting, rusting, peeling of paint, or pest infestations.
