Vapor Barriers

Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Systems in Connecticut & Westchester County, NY

Connecticut Basement Systems helps transform those wet and dirty crawl spaces into dry and usable crawl space environments by installing patented crawl space vapor barrier systems. The vapor barrier is an effective solution to keeping the crawl space dry because it prevents moisture from passing through the floors and concrete walls of traditional crawl space structures.

Vapor barriers keep the moisture out. A vapor barrier resists the passage of air into the crawl space and stops air movement for the ground which can turn your crawl space into a semi-conditioned space. When that occurs, your floors feel warmer in winter and your energy bills go down.

Additional benefits of a vapor barrier. With a vapor barrier installed in your crawl space, all those moisture-related problems such as rot, mold, foul odors and insects may be gone for good. Our CleanSpace® moisture barrier also blocks most movement of harmful gases entering your home, such as radon from the soil below your home.

Steps To Installing A Crawl Space Vapor Barrier

  1. Install Airtight Doors & Vent Covers: Sealing your crawl space doors and vents stops the cycle of cold, humidity, and moisture entering from the outside air. However, water can still enter your crawlspace in many ways.
  2. Remove Any Standing Water Sources: The next step is to eliminate any sources of flooding in your crawl space by installing a crawl space drain and sump pump system. This eliminates flooding water from your crawl space, but moisture can still enter directly through the concrete and floor in the form of water vapor.
  3. Repair The Structure: If your crawl space is sagging or damaged by prolonged mold and rot, the next step is to install crawl space support jacks to help restore your structure. This will help your floors stay even and stop any structural sagging upstairs.
  4. Encapsulate & Insulate The Crawl Space: To stop moisture from passing through your floors and porous concrete walls, a crawl space liner should be installed. A durable liner will allow for servicemen to use the space without damage while transforming your crawl space into usable storage space. This is also the best time to install crawl space insulation on your walls or floors.
  5. Install A Dehumidifier: Installing an energy efficient, self-draining crawl space dehumidifier will keep your space dry.

Most homeowners aren't happy with their crawl space environment. And there's a good reason for that -- most crawl spaces don't offer much to be happy about.

Typical crawl spaces are moldy, foul-smelling spaces that homeowners avoid at all cost. Many of them flood, and they're often filled with debris. In more extreme cases, they can be rotting structures with rodents, animals, and other pests living within. 

Connecticut Basement Systems, installs vapor barrier systems in crawl spaces to transform those moldy, and moisture filled areas into a dry and valuable storage area for the home!
