Understanding the Importance of Plastic Vapor Barriers

A plastic vapor barrier's core purpose is to prevent moisture from seeping into structures, which can lead to a wide range of issues like mold growth, structural damage, and reduced insulation efficiency. 

Especially in areas like under house spaces or crawl spaces, where moisture can easily accumulate, a moisture barrier acts as an essential shield. When you're dealing with concrete structures, moisture can compromise the integrity of the material, making a barrier indispensable.

How Do I Install a Plastic Vapor Barrier In My Crawl Space?

  • Find the Crawl Space Entrance: First you need to find the entrance of the crawl space. The entry to a crawl space is not always easy to find. Sometimes it is located outdoors or along the outside wall of the crawl space. If the crawl space is beneath an addition, the entry may be in the basement wall. In other instances, you will find an indoor entry hatch in a closet, pantry, or utility area. If your floor has wall-to-wall carpeting, look for a square seam in the carpeting that indicates a hatch door.
  • Dry out the Crawl Space: Begin with a crawl space that is as dry as possible. Methods for drying out a crawl space include: using a dehumidifier; setting up fans; removing wet materials, and using a pump to discharge any standing water. You may need several days of effort to dry out the crawlspace before you venture down to lay vapor barriers over the ground.
  • Clean out the Crawl Space: Remove all debris and garbage, especially any material that is sharp and might puncture the plastic. Crawl spaces are notoriously messy, as construction workers often toss discarded building materials in this space. To the degree possible, level out the ground using a garden rake.
  • Roll Out and Cut the Plastic Sheeting: Begin at one side of the crawl space and lay down 6-mil or thicker polyethylene plastic over the entire crawl space. Cut the sheets to size, allowing 6 inches or more along walls. Overlap the seams by no less than 12 inches and secure them together with the poly PVC tape.
  • Attach Sheeting to Walls and Piers: Work around obstacles. With every house, you will encounter both outer support walls or columns and inner support piers and posts. For inner supports, cut the plastic sheeting to fit around them and seal the plastic against the supports using double-sided butyl tape. The goal is to provide a solid barrier against the ground. Where necessary, you can cut additional small pieces of plastic to seal any gaps and ensure a full barrier. Around the perimeter of the crawlspace, extend the plastic sheeting at least 6 inches up the walls and secure it in place with double-sided butyl tape.
  • Improve Crawl Space Ventilation: Ensure good ventilation. Plastic vapor barriers will prevent most water vapor from seeping up from the soil into your crawlspace, but improving cross ventilation through the crawlspace is an important additional method that will prevent any residual moisture from being trapped in the space. Vapor barriers greatly slow the migration of moisture vapor up from the ground, but without cross ventilation through the space, some moisture can still collect.
