Frequently Asked Questions
Can vapor barriers cause mold issues?
Only if they are installed incorrectly, in the wrong area, or by someone without expert knowledge and experience. At Dragon Vapor Barriers, we’ll ensure your crawl space is protected from moisture and mold growth, using industry leading materials to safeguard your home.
Do I need a moisture barrier in my crawl space?
Due to our hot, humid climate here in South Carolina, moisture barriers are essential for any crawl space. Whether the source of water vapors is from the soil beneath your home or from groundwater build-up after a storm, a moisture barrier will protect the foundations of your home and ensure you have clean, mold-free air circulating throughout your property.
How thick of a vapor barrier do I need?
At the very bare minimum, vapor barriers should be at least 6mil in thickness. We suggest a 10mil polyethylene liner to ensure your crawl space is fully protected from moisture, and for longer-lasting durability.
Should a vapor barrier be sealed?
Vapor barriers are designed to control and prevent moisture from affecting the structural integrity of your home. They are not designed to control air flow, so don’t need to be fully sealed to be effective.
What exactly does a vapor barrier do?
A vapor barrier prevents moisture and water vapors from the soil beneath your home gathering on your crawl space walls and insulation. By reducing excess moisture in your crawl space, you won’t have to suffer from mold and mildew growth, or musty odors spreading up through your floorboards.
