Question: How do you tape plastic sheeting to concrete foundation wall?

Answer: There are several methods out there to tape plastic sheeting to a concrete foundation wall when working in a crawlspace. What we recommend is taping (using double sided Butyl tape) the plastic sheeting (Dura Skrim films, Crawlspace 1800 or Vapor Block Plus 20) to the wall, then using a 1/4" drill, drill a hole through the vapor retarder, tape, and into the concrete or block, then tap a foundation wall pin securely into the hole. The plastic sheeting choice depends on several factors and the condition that exists in your crawlspace. Best bet is to give us a call, so we can help you decide what is the most cost effective method to use keeping your goals in mind.

Question: I am looking for a vapor barrier- something that is stronger than a 6-8 mil poly for our crawl space. What do you recommend?
Answer: We supply a large quantity of liners specially designed for the crawlspace and basement industry. All of them have at least one white side, so the space becomes nice and bright, and things like spiders are easily seen if present. The liners that are most popular are in the 12, 18, and 20 mil range. All of these are extrusion laminated polyethylene sheeting products, with reinforcement layers. The "extrusion lamination" means the layers of the product are joined together using molten polyethylene to form a single product that will never come apart. Using multiple layers allows us to use some very strong types of polyethylene, plus some excellent barrier films to create a product that is much stronger, and has lower perm rates than one can achieve with a mono-layer liner (liner all made in one single layer). With any of these sheeting products, one can crawl around with little worry about puncturing through the liner. If you have sharp rocks underneath, then I would recommend the 18 or 20 mil products.
