With housing prices at near all time highs and interest rates rising, many homeowners are choosing to add onto their existing homes rather than purchasing a new home. When additions are built onto existing homes, many times they are built onto a shallow poured concrete foundation. By not building the addition with a full depth foundation to create a basement, contractors and homeowners are able to keep the cost of the new addition lower. However, when these additions are built with a shallow foundation they create a crawl space. It is important to finish the foundation project off with the installation of a proper vapor barrier to ensure that the wood framing is not compromised through time.
If your new construction project could us a vapor barrier, schedule a free inspection with one of our knowledgeable representatives to come out a give a free estimate.
