Mobile Home vapor barrier Inspection, is our specialty. Florida Anchor and Barrier specializes in the repair of the underside of mobile homes.
When the vapor barrier breaks down as it will over time, the Insulation which is so important for retaining heat and cool air in the summer can escape. This picture below shows you what happens when the vapor barrier breaks down.
We will always take pictures to show you exactly what’s going on underneath your mobile home.
This vapor barrier and insulation needs to be fixed right away because it will allow the floors to become soft and rot as well as create the perfect environment for mold and mildew which is dangerous for you and your families health.
We will remove the old worn out insulation and replace it R-13 Insulation and a layer of Black Polyethylene which is what is called for in the building codes of all the building departments in Florida.
The underside of the mobile is called many different names, underbelly, bottom wrap, belly, barrier, just to name a few. The bottom of the floor in your mobile home is very important to making sure the mobile home stays dry and structurally sound because it protects the insulation as we discussed and keeps out pests!
Rats, ants, fleas and, termites, can make living in your manufactured or mobile home extremely uncomfortable and installing a new vapor barrier and insulation will shut them out for good.
We always inspect the bottom of your mobile home for the obvious signs of holes, rips, or tears in the old vapor barrier, as well as signs of rodents, insects and damage from moisture.
Replacing vapor barriers on mobile homes is hard and hot work that requires crawling around under your mobile home in some pretty nasty areas, so we recommend this job be done by professionals.
