Attic Pros offers a detailed inspection report for every customer we work with. Here’s what we include:
- Assessment of the Current Vapor Barrier: The inspection will commence with an assessment of the current vapor barrier. This involves checking any possible tears, holes, or signs of wear on the existing vapor barrier to determine if it needs any repairs or replacements.
- Identification of Mold or Mildew: The presence of mold or mildew can lead to several health issues and cause structural damage. During the inspection, the inspector will look for any signs of mold growth or mildew on the existing vapor barrier and surrounding materials.
- Testing Moisture Levels: The inspection report will contain a comprehensive assessment of moisture levels within the crawl space. High levels of moisture can lead to mold growth, wood rot, and structural damage. The inspector should use a moisture meter to measure the moisture content of the crawl space’s surfaces.
- Identification of Structural Damage: The crawl space is the foundation of your home, and therefore any structural damage to it can affect the rest of the house’s structural integrity. The inspector will look for any signs of sagging or structural damage to the crawl space.
- Identification of Pests and Rodents: The crawl space can be an attractive environment for pests and rodents. The inspection report will contain a comprehensive assessment of any pest and rodent infestations and damage caused by them.

How Do You Install A Vapor Barrier In A Dirt Crawl Space?
Crawl spaces under a house can be damp and prone to mold growth, which can lead to poor indoor air quality and even damage to the structure. Putting in a vapor barrier in the crawl space can help to prevent moisture problems and keep your home healthier. Here’s how you can install a vapor barrier in a dirt crawl space.
Step 1: Clean The Crawl Space
Before installing the vapor barrier, you need to clean the crawl space to remove any debris, rocks, or sticks on the ground. Ensure the crawl space is clear of any obstacles that could puncture the vapor barrier once installed.
Step 2: Level The Ground
If the ground in your crawl space is uneven, you should level it to create a flat surface for the vapor barrier. Use a rake or hoe to smooth out any bumps and level the dirt surface.
STEP 3: Install The Drainage
If your crawl space is prone to flooding, you need to install a drainage system. This will help to divert any moisture away from the crawl space and prevent it from penetrating the vapor barrier. A French drain may be ideal for crawl spaces with severe moisture problems.
Step 4: Choose The Type Of Vapor Barrier
Vapor barriers come in different materials, including plastic sheets, reinforced foil, or polyethylene. Choose a vapor barrier with the appropriate thickness for your crawl space, depending on the amount of moisture it is prone to.
Step 5: Install The Vapor Barrier
Lay the vapor barrier on the ground, starting from one end of the crawl space to the other. Overlap the edges by 12 inches and use duct tape or a sealant to connect the edges. If necessary, use a utility knife to cut the vapor barrier to the shape of the crawl space and its obstacles, such as plumbing and HVAC systems.
Step 6: Attach The Vapor Barrier To Foundation Walls And Piers
Secure the vapor barrier to the foundation walls and piers using a masonry screw or a fastener. Ensure the vapor barrier is attached snugly to the wall or pier to prevent gaps where moisture can penetrate.
Step 7: Secure The Seams
Finally, secure the seams of the vapor barrier with a sealant or duct tape. Ensure all seams are properly sealed to prevent moisture from penetrating the vapor barrier.

Yes, crawl space vapor barriers can dry out over time due to exposure to the elements, especially if they are not properly installed or maintained. This can lead to reduced effectiveness in preventing moisture and mold growth and may require replacement. Regular inspection and maintenance can help prolong the lifespan of a crawl space vapor barrier and ensure it remains effective.
Yes, mold can grow under a moisture barrier if there is moisture present on top of or underneath the barrier. Moisture barriers are designed to prevent moisture from penetrating through to the surface below, but if they are compromised or not installed properly, moisture can still accumulate and lead to mold growth. Proper ventilation and regular inspections can help prevent mold growth under moisture barriers.
