Is Your Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Really Doing the Job?
Homeowners can take advanced measures to protect their homes from damage caused by moisture. While many choose to focus on the roof above them, they may fail to address the concerns below. Crawl spaces are susceptible to problems caused by water vapors that rise from the ground and get trapped in the enclosed space.
