After the Fire is Out, that’s when Redwood Restoration Comes In.

Vapor barriers in your crawl space are designed to protect your home against the hazard of unwanted and undesirable moisture.

Can you imagine what would happen if several gallons of water were dumped into your living room every day? The exposed ground in the crawl space under your home or commercial building gives off water vapor, as much as 19 gallons a day.

It insidiously rises and permeates your structure. It penetrates through wood, brick, insulation and concrete slabs. This becomes a serious concern for the home and business owner. Affecting air quality, it can be a health hazard for your family, pets, customers and employees.

This moisture serves as a breeding ground for rodents and insects, including termites, and for wood-decaying fungus and mold. It can also mildew carpets, furnishings, and clothes, increases heat loss and creates sour odors in the crawl space itself.

What You Can Do to Protect Your Home

Schedule a free inspection of your crawl space with Redwood Restoration Services. Our goal is to help prevent damage to your structure and its contents. Financially, prevention is the best medicine.

Among the signs you can look for which might indicate your crawl space has moisture, mold, or water damage are:

  • Torn vapor barriers or vapor barrier puddles
  • Condensation or standing water
  • Higher than normal electric bills
  • A musty odor you cannot locate
  • Wet insulation
  • Visible mold or mildew
  • Cracks in the foundation
  • Wood rot in floor joints
  • Bowed, uneven or squeaky floors
  • Pests, insects or rodents
  • Humidity inside your home

Vapor Barriers to Protect Your Home

Redwood Restoration offers one of the most advanced dehumidification systems available today. The system is quiet, and provides cleaner air and improved circulation. Moreover, it reduces dust and allergens, and decreases the chance of fungus growth and pest infestations.

The better-built your structure is, the greater the danger of excessive moisture. Tighter joints and better insulation hold in moisture and increase condensation. We install highly efficient vapor barriers. A vapor barrier is a form of plastic sheeting that is lightweight, durable, and impervious to water and vapor.

Vapor barriers in conjunction with the sealing of foundation vents can reduce your energy costs. The vapor barriers we use conform to minimum property requirements set forth in all FHA and other federal moisture control specifications. When properly installed and overlapped on crawl space ground areas, vapor barriers hold water vapor at ground level. Under normal conditions, a vapor barrier will last the life of your home. This means it is deterioration proof, will not rot, mold, mildew, harden, crack or peel.
