Damp Proofing / Air Vapor Barriers

Air & Vapor Barriers use

While very different in design and application from one another, air, vapor, and moisture barrier systems are critical components of a building’s envelope.  Designed to retard the transmission of water vapor through building materials, vapor barriers are particularly helpful in preventing the migration of water vapor from soil through adjacent horizontal concrete slabs or foundation walls.  In the strictest sense, air barriers are also vapor barriers when they act to control the transport of moisture-laden air.  Frequently, in order to restore a building’s structural integrity, it becomes necessary to remove and re-install portions of these barrier systems.  Everclear Enterprises, Inc. understands how these systems work in conjunction with one another to contribute to the building’s overall performance and incorporates their proper installation into their repair strategy.
