Vapor Barrier

Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Systems in Western and Central MA

At Leader Basement Systems, we are the experts who will transform your musty crawlspace into a clean, dry, and energy-efficient space.

Most homeowners don't like their crawl space. Let's face it, most crawl spaces don't do much for our homes.

Typical crawlspaces are moldy, bad-smelling spaces that we avoid at all costs. Many of them flood, and they're often filled with debris. In other cases, they can be rotting with rodents, animals, and other pests living inside too.

How to Install A Crawl Space Vapor Barrier

  1. Airtight Doors & Vent Cover Installation: Sealing the crawl space doors and vents stops the cycle of cold, humidity, and moisture from coming into the crawlspace. However, water can still get in.
  2. Remove Standing Water Sources: The next step is to get rid of flood sources in the crawl space by installing a crawl space drain and sump pump system.

    This discourages water in the crawl space, but moisture can still enter through the porous concrete and floor as water vapor.

  3. Fix the Structure: If your crawl space is sagging, damaged by mold or rot, the next step is to install crawl space support jacks to restore the structural integrity. This helps the floors stay even and stop any upstairs structural sagging.
  4. Encapsulate & Insulate the Crawl Space: To stop moisture from passing through your floors and concrete walls, a crawl space liner should be installed. A durable liner will allow service people to use the space without damaging it, and you'll have more usable storage space. This is also a great time to put in crawl space insulation on the walls or floors.
  5. Install a Crawlspace Dehumidifier: Installing an energy-efficient, self-draining crawl space dehumidifier will keep your humid space dry. Our specially designed crawl space dehumidifier system includes a filter that removes air particles, as small as 2 microns! This protects your crawl space from mold, dust mites, and mildew damage permanently.
