Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Installation in Birmingham
Safeguard Your Home Against Water, Mold & Pests
If your home was built with a pier-and-beam foundation and includes a crawl space instead of a full basement, chances are good that you don't go down there very often. In fact, many homeowners have never even looked in their crawl space. That is a significant oversight.
Most crawl spaces have dirt floors and are vented to the outdoors. In the heat of summer, that allows hot air to enter your home. During the winter months, cold air comes in. These conditions are not good for your home. They cause condensation and high humidity, which can trigger structural problems related to the presence of mold, dust mites, dry rot, bugs, and other issues that a vented crawl space brings to the table.
The solution? A crawl-space encapsulation system from Ox Foundation Solutions for homeowners throughout Alabama.
Installing a complete vapor barrier provides the crawl space with a moisture-protection layer to guard against the negative effects of excess moisture, such as mold, floor failure, increased electricity costs, odors, insects, and dust mites. High relative humidity and moisture can also have major health effects on residents, causing or worsening conditions such as asthma, hay fever, allergies, and other respiratory conditions.
Don’t leave these vital updates until later: our Birmingham crawl space vapor barrier installation team can help ensure that your home is protected. Call (205) 839-7950 today.
Vapor Barriers Provide Extra Protection
A vapor barrier is used to resist moisture from entering through your wall, ceiling, or floor. Essentially, a vapor barrier's job is to create a layer of protection between your home and the crawl space beneath it. It's also useful as an energy-saving method to lower your heating bills while ensuring your home feels more comfortable.
