Crawl Space Vapor Barrier in Rochester & Geneseo, NY

Having trouble maintaining a dry, healthy crawl space beneath your home or office? Recurring moisture in the crawl space means standing water beneath your property that will negatively impact the quality of your inside air and could cause structural damages. One of the best ways to stop that is by installing a crawl space vapor barrier from Great Lakes Waterproofing. 

A vapor barrier provides a moisture protection layer to prevent the negative effects of moisture from impacting your home or office. It slows or stops the evaporation of ground moisture into the crawl space air. For the past two decades, our moisture control experts have been installing these barriers as part of our crawl space repair services in RochesterGeneseoCaledonia, and other cities within our service area.

Why Install a Vapor Barrier from Great Lakes Waterproofing?

Why Install a Vapor Barrier from Great Lakes Waterproofing?

In structures with a crawlspace, around 40% of the air people breathe on the first floor comes from the crawlspace. As a result, unhealthy air can infiltrate the rooms upstairs and cause poor indoor air quality. That causes health hazards. A wet crawl space also can weaken the foundation and threaten structural integrity.

Along with humidity in the air, water can also damage your crawlspace. If there's a plumbing leak, or water seeping through the gaps from the surrounding soil after a heavy rain, your crawlspace may have standing water causing dampness and molds just like moisture. If you couple the vapor barrier with a waterproofing system, you can prevent both water & moisture from entering the crawl space and causing problems.

Benefits of Installing Vapor Barrier

Benefits of Installing Vapor Barrier

  • Comfortable Room Temperature: As moisture absorbs all the warmth in your crawlspace or prevents it from escaping, it can affect the temperature in your house. Having a vapor barrier prevents moisture from doing so and helps you keep your indoor environment comfortable.
  • Energy-Efficiency: As moisture can no longer hamper your room temperature with a vapor barrier, you won't need to run your HVAC system for long hours to make it comfortable. As a result, less electricity will be used and the utility bills will decrease.
  • Mold Prevention: As moisture is the main source of mold growth, if moisture is prevented, so is the infestation of mold.
  • Reduced Harmful Gas: A crawl space vapor barrier system also is known to prevent or slow the movement of harmful gases like radon in the soil to stop it from infiltrating your crawlspace.
