Vapor Barrier Services in Mableton, GA
Vapor barriers are durable, artificial membranes used to prevent water vapor from entering basements and crawl spaces. They are one of the most effective ways to separate the structural supports of your home from the potentially harmful, natural moisture in the ground. During Georgia’s rainy season or as temperatures change over the year, moisture will naturally accumulate in your crawl space, leading to issues of wood rot, mold and mildew, insect infestation, and more.
Moisture can cause massive amounts of damage when it goes unnoticed and unchecked, but a crawl space vapor barrier can protect your home. By sealing your crawl space, you’ll improve your home’s value and avoid the costly hassle of future water damage repairs.

Prevent Structural Problems with Crawl Space Encapsulation
Prevention is key when it comes to moisture problems in the home. Damp proofing your crawl space with a vapor barrier will help prevent a variety of water damage. When damp structural features start to rot, decay happens quickly and can lead to much larger and more expensive problems.
Moisture trapped in your crawl space can lead to rotting wood, damaged walls and foundations, mold or mildew problems, and more. By installing a water vapor barrier in your crawl space, you seal off your home from ground moisture, preventing these problems from developing. Moisture barriers also deter insect infestations, seal away organic odors, and make your floors less drafty.
