Normally, people only install vapor barriers in their crawlspaces to do just what the name suggests – block out water vapor. However, these handy crawlspace encapsulation devices can also be used for another purpose. If you are looking for a way to seal your crawlspace against water vapor and cold air all at once, consider having WCI Basement Repair put in a crawlspace vapor barrier for insulation. We install vapor barriers to keep your crawlspace warm and dry all winter long.
The vents in your crawlspace are designed to prevent moisture buildup by letting air circulate thorugh your crawlspace. However, they can also be a burden to homeowners, as they allow water to leak into the crawlspace and they provide an entry point for pests. This moisture can also enter your crawlspace from other parts of the crawlspace, usually seeping through the porous concrete that makes up the crawlspace walls and floor. Crawlspace vents can also let warm air into your crawlspace and raise the humidity levels. Whether or not you use crawlspace vents, you may want to have your crawlspace insulated to keep temperatures more consistent and to prevent a moisture issue.
