Ground Vapour & Moisture Barrier

Ground Vapour & Moisture Barrier

Ground Vapour & Moisture Barrier

Excessive moisture in a conventionally vented crawl space is one of the biggest crawl space concerns. As moisture increases in or under a structure, this increases the possibility of attracting and creating an environment that supports wood destroying insects (like termites), creates a space that encourages mould growth, and makes the structure susceptible to wood rot. Additionally, the effects of excessive moisture can negatively impact indoor air quality.

The crawl space in a home may be out of sight but the effects of excessive moisture in a crawl space should never be overlooked.

Sustain Energy Solutions protects your crawlspace or underfloor. We provide moisture control by using a high-quality vapour/moisture barrier to cover the ground. This system, along with proper drainage and a form of mechanical drying will provide great moisture control protection.

Additionally, Sustain Energy Solutions can seal your vents and set up a dehumidifier.
