Q:can i use this as a regular vapor barrier? (not under cement; just laid out)

Answer This Question

A:  It makes a great crawlspace vapor barrier. It's heavy duty compared to 6mil. Maybe overkill, but I like it!

      A:  It will serve well as a vapor barrier like in a crawl space under a house. It is not intended for routine foot traffic. Be sure to use a good seam tape like 4" wide ZIP System Flashing Tape.

        A:  This item is manufactured to be used in contact with soil and granular fill under concrete slabs, beams and footings. This product does not contain plasticizers that could break down or be attractive to rodents. As such, longevity would be based on other components such as chemical exposure, etc. You may visit http://www.yellowguard.com for additional information. We also highly recommend consulting with your local Home Depot store and your contractor for further assistance.

              Rugged crawlspace Vapor barrier
              My only experience encapsulating a crawlspace was with this product, but I was very impressed with the quality and durability. When you're researching a project of this kind, you come across all kinds of information about how to choose a vapor barrier, and it took me awhile to find the right product that would be durable enough against moisture and abrasion. With this, you don't have to worry about any separation or fiberglass breakdown like you do with the reinforced liners, but it's easily as durable as those would be. It would be quite difficult to accidentally puncture this liner, and that's exactly what I'm looking for for this kind of project. I know I'll have plumbers and electricians working on top of it in the future, and I have no concern that the product is going to get damaged by accident. I would absolutely recommend this stuff to anyone looking to encapsulate a crawl space.

                I decided to encapsulate my crawl space due to excessive moisture. When it came time to choose a vapor barrier, I was overwhelmed. I researched and researched until I happened to find out about Yellow Guard. I went with the 10 mil for the length of the roll. I was concerned if the 10 mil would be thick enough for its use. Once I received it and opened the packing I was shocked. It far exceeded my expectations and was plenty thick, in my opinion, for its intended use. Obviously, 20 mil would be thicker but I don't believe it would be as manageable to wrap the piers and cover the foundation walls. I don't do reviews, but this product deserves a 5 star if not higher. If your like me and encapsulating your own crawl space, look no more for a vapor barrier. (side note- i made a rack to hold and make rolling out the plastic a lil easier. 3/4 steel pipe on 2x4 stand)

                I used this as a vapor barrier in my crawl space, over a stone base. It is a good heavy plastic and was easy to work with. The roll is 7' long, so I had to cut everything outside. Once inside, the stuff was easy to work with. Doubled it up on traffic areas. The roll is heavy, about 150 lbs. Easy to use, lays down well.

                15 mil is very thick. It will not tear on accident. Putting hold down spikes through it takes some effort (which is good). Will definitely make a formidable moisture barrier.
