Moisture and Vapor Barriers–These terms essentially refer to the same thing. Moisture barriers and vapor barriers are both building materials designed to prevent water from getting past the barrier. Mostly used in crawlspaces, these and other methods can completely encapsulate these areas allowing you to breathe easier, reduce your energy bills and protect your property from moisture damage and molds.

Spray Foam Insulation
Spray Foam Insulation
Welcome to Alamance Insulation! Before giving us a call, how about a little primer on insulation?
The “R-value” of insulation represents the maximum thermal performance of that material. While there is a wide variety of types of insulation, the full R-value is only realized when the materials are properly installed. Homeowners can sometimes install some types of insulation themselves. Other types require professional installation. Learn more about types of insulation here: Insulation Types.
Finding Insulation Professionals
First, get a cost estimate for the R-value you need, and don’t be surprised if quoted prices for a given R-value installation vary by more than a few factors. We take many different variables into consideration, including sealing air leaks beforehand.
One of our estimators may inspect house framing members including wall studs and attic/floor joists if needed to make sure that the correct type and amount of insulation is recommended.
If you choose to install the insulation yourself, follow the manufacturer’s instructions and safety precautions carefully and check local building and fire codes. With that said, many manufacturers require that their product be installed by professionals, if for nothing else to preserve the warranties.
