Why You Need a Moisture Barrier
Numerous homeowners fear going into their crawl space as it's filthy, wet, loaded with junk from construction, and can be home to bugs. These things can all have an extremely negative affect on your home. A moisture barrier keeps out water so your crawl space is dry and free from intrusions. Installing a moisture barrier will:
- Help your crawl space remain dry
- Keep moisture from attacking your home
- Shield your wooden crawl space supports from wood rot
- Keep out bugs that that like humid spaces
- Minimize flood damage to your crawl space
HOW MOISTURE BARRIERS WORK
A moisture barrier, also referred to as a vapor barrier, stops water from traveling through the soil and into your crawl space. In addition to stopping the moisture, the moisture barrier encourages drainage into the soil so it isn’t trapping a layer of water below your crawl space. If your crawl space already has water in it, a sump pump can be used to remove the water and dry the space out for the moisture barrier to be installed.
