Atlas Master Companies offers crawl space encapsulation using a vapor barrier to promote safe, dry, and clean crawl spaces. Vapor barriers decrease the moisture levels in your crawl space and prevent water from entering the crawl space. Vapor barriers will improve the air quality of your entire home and makes your home more energy efficient. We use products manufactured by Earth Contact Products (ECP
), the leading manufacturer of waterproofing products in the industry.
ECP vapor barriers are manufactured using a triple-ply woven, high-density virgin polyethylene membrane. These vapor barriers have the highest strength to weight ratio, highest tensile strength and tear resistance of any product on the market today. ECP vapor barriers are 10 and 16 mil thick. The barriers that are in your local hardware store are 6 mil thick and are not puncture resistant. Once a vapor barrier is torn or punctured, it is useless.
