How a Moisture Barrier Can Save your Iowa Home

If your home has a crawlspace, it is usually a place that is often ignored. However, many crawlspaces suffer from poor moisture management if not taken care of. Some of the symptoms of a wet crawlspace are:

  • Musty odors in the living areas
  • Condensation on air conditioning ductwork
  • Mold or moisture damage in the crawlspace
  • Insect infestation
  • Buckled floors
  • Insect infestation
  • High humidity in the living area
  • Wood rot

All of these are signs that you may be in need of a crawlspace moisture barrier. A moisture barrier, or vapor barrier, will keep moisture from entering your crawlspace, keeping your entire home safe from all of the things that a wet crawlspace can bring.

WCI Basement Repair will come inspect your crawlspace and offer you the solution yo need to keep your crawlspace safe and dry.

Wet Crawlspace Solutions in Iowa

wet crawl space with insulation hanging downWCI Basement Repair will install a poly crawlspace encapsulation barrier that will line the entire crawlspace.These barriers are manufactured by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the leader in basement waterproofing products in the industry.

These encapsulation barriers are 10 and 16 mil thick, and are puncture resistant. They are made of a high tensile strength material that will stop moisture from entering the crawlspace. Unlike the barriers that you can buy at your local hardware store, the ECP vapor barriers will not tear or puncture. Having a vapor barrier that is 10 or 16 mil thick as opposed to 6 mil thick, will give you peace of mind that the moisture will stay out of your crawlspace. Once a vapor barrier tears, it becomes useless and moisture will enter the crawlspace.

When your barrier is installed, it covers the entire foundation wall and will create a permanent vapor barrier against water and water vapor, creating a healthier home environment.
