Weigh Your Options Before Committing to Your Next Home Improvement Project
Are you wondering what your next home improvement project should be? A lot of homeowners spring for aesthetic upgrades when the biggest bang for your buck may come from your crawl space. Frequently an afterthought, fixing your crawl space can help ensure a safe structural foundation and great indoor air quality to complement many other home upgrades you may be considering.
Installing the vapor barrier in the crawl space as it’s being built eliminates the need for your contractor to have to maneuver in a cramped space down the line.
Oftentimes, new homes are built with floor-to-floor insulation, including insulation in the crawl space. But while insulation helps to regulate temperature and conserve energy, it doesn’t provide enough moisture protection. Crawl space encapsulation with a vapor barrier is a great way to ensure a drier, safer, and more energy efficient environment, but many new homeowners mistakenly overlook this crucial component to a healthy home.
It would be a mistake to spend the time, money, and effort to rehabilitate your crawl space, only to find out afterwards that the work you did isn’t even up to code. Code is complicated for many reasons including but not limited to: finding which codes are applicable to your project and interpreting code the same way as your local inspector. Determining local code is difficult because there is the overarching International Residential Code (IRC) that acts as a baseline for proper building code requirements, but there are also local building codes that may differ from the national requirements.
