Living with a damp and moldy basement wasn’t part of the plan when you bought your home. Regrettably, it’s an everyday problem in West Virginia, posing potential hazards to your health and home, but there is a remedy available. 

Using vapor barriers along with other waterproofing methods will ensure a dry basement. Basement Authority of West Virginia is your local expert in basement waterproofing, offering one of the best vapor barriers on the market to address your needs. 

After exploring this page, you’ll see how installing the WallSeal™ basement wall vapor barrier will benefit your home. You’ll walk away knowing the next best steps you need to take! 

What is the WallSeal™ Vapor Barrier? 

The WallSeal™ Vapor Barrier is a superior 12-mil thick barrier designed to prevent moisture from penetrating your basement walls. 

It is firmly affixed to the wall, channeling any captured water into our BasementGutter™ internal drainage system. This effectively stops basement walls from getting wet and holding moisture that could lead to other serious issues, 

Pairing our vapor barrier with additional waterproofing methods, like sump pumps and dehumidifiers, guarantees a comprehensive approach to protecting your home and enhancing your property’s value. 

Signs You Need a Basement Wall Vapor Barrier 

Identifying the need for a vapor barrier is straightforward—watch out for signs of water damage. To help you, these are the typical basement issues encountered: 

Swift action is crucial because delaying repairs could lead to extensive structural damage and health risks. Consult a local specialist like Basement Authority of West Virginia if you notice any of these signs, no matter how small they might seem. 

Is a Basement Wall Vapor Barrier Necessary? 

Absolutely, installing a vapor barrier is one of the most important parts of a comprehensive basement waterproofing approach. 

Even if there aren’t visible cracks or signs of leaking in your basement walls, moisture accumulation is always possible because concrete is porous. Water finds the path of least resistance, so being proactive by addressing moisture issues immediately with a vapor barrier ensures a healthier basement.
