South Carolina and Northeast Georgia Vapor Barriers
Vapor barriers are materials used to damp-proof your homes. By installing vapor barriers in your residence, you can prevent moisture from spreading through walls, floors and ceilings, reducing the buildup of mildew and mold. The materials used for vapor barriers vary widely depending on the area of the building you are trying to protect. Our team is here to ensure you have a system of vapor barriers in place tailored to your home or business.
It’s important that vapor barriers are installed correctly, as improper installation can cause moisture to become trapped in the building structure. At Comfort Zone Foam Insulation LLC, we guarantee that our work is of the highest quality and will leave you satisfied.
There are a number of locations you should consider installing vapor barriers in your home, such as:
Improve Crawl Spaces
Dark and close to the soil, crawl spaces are magnets for moisture. Installing vapor barriers in the crawl space under your house will keep your crawl space dry and prevent musty odors from seeping up into the first floor of your home.
Prevent Burst Pipes
Excess moisture around pipes can increase the potential for damage when the temperature plunges below freezing. Properly installed vapor barriers will help you avoid damage to your home.
Reduce Mold and Mildew
Because well-installed vapor barriers keep moisture out of your structure, they help reduce the growth of mold and mildew in floors, ceilings and walls. Vapor barriers are thus an important part of ensuring your residence or commercial property remains clean, healthy and a pleasant place to live and work.
Make Sure Your Property Holds Its Value
Moisture builds up and damages buildings over time. Without proper vapor barriers, you run the risk of suddenly discovering unexpected problems that decrease the value of your property when you put it on the market. Installing effective means of limiting moisture from the moment you begin construction or remodeling ensures your structure holds it value over time.
