As a certified Professional Appraiser with over 35 years experience providing crawl space remediation services I am always asked the question “Do you recommend Barrier Vapor Scum to protect your crawl space or another crawl space cleaning system?” Recently the Nashville Metro Bureau of Standards & Building Inspection released an alarming report to that effect. The news release can be found on their website at :Barrier Vapor – book today
How Crawl Space Nashville Saved My Life
They are recommending two different vapor barriers to protect your crawl. Both systems, which are similar in appearance and application will protect your space from any type of moisture leakage or odour problems. However, there are specific differences between the two such as:
The barrier vapor is a clear plastic sheeting that is attached to the exterior wall of the crawl space. This is sandwiched between the ceiling above and the exterior wall. A very effective barrier, it will also provide insulation against heat loss and moisture absorption. The barrier vapor is manufactured to be durable, water-resistant and install easily. This product comes standard in both black and white colours. As with all products manufactured by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) it meets all building codes, requirements and is safe for residential as well as commercial applications.
