Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Installation in Knoxville, TN

The moist air of the crawl space directly enters your home and makes it difficult to keep the home healthy. Mold also thrives in moist environments. Only a vapor barrier can solve these issues.

How Innovative Restorations Installs Crawl Space Vapor Barrier?

At Innovative Restorations, first, we install a good drainage system to keep rainwater from entering your property. In order to lessen moisture in the crawlspace, we slope the dust and debris away from your house. Then we place a plastic polyethylene as a vapor barrier over the dirty crawlspace. We overlap the joint of plastic and use landscape fabric stakes to keep the plastic in place.

We use 1-1/2 inch stiff and moisture-proof insulation to insulate foundation walls. This protects the crawlspace from rising concrete moisture. After insulating the rim joists we use caulk and strong insulation to seal any air leaks. We seal the foundation wall with plastic and galvanized flashing to keep moisture and termites out. This is how we install vapor barriers in any crawl space.
