Crawl Space Insulation Installation
After your crawl space is clean, it will need to be reinsulated. About 40% of the air in your home is coming from the crawl space, so it is vital that the air circulating from the crawl space is clean and moisture free. By insulating the crawl space properly, you can ensure that the air you’re breathing is clean, promoting good health and a reduced energy bill.
Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Installation:
After the crawl space has been cleaned and reinsulated, it’s time to install a vapor barrier. A vapor barrier is a thin layer of impermeable material, typically polyethylene sheeting, included in building construction to prevent moisture from damaging the fabric of the building.
Living in Seattle, you’re probably all too familiar with the damp climate which makes for a perfect mildew and mold incubator. If you have a vapor barrier, it will combat against wood rot, keeping your foundation and support beams strong and keeping your air quality clean.
