Damaged mobile home floors and vapor barriers are at the top of the list: Vapor barrier replacement is an important  

Damaged belly’s or the underside of mobile homes is one of the most common problems. If this barrier is damaged or broken it will cause an almost endless list of problems and a lot of them are dangerous to your health.

Many of the problems with mobile home floors and vapor barriers are a result of repairs to the mobile home. The floor in the mobile is cut to replace or repair pipes or when upgrades are installed and the floor is not resealed properly, which allows moisture and insects into the mobile home and the problems compound and you end up with a mobile home floor that leaks and sags and needs replacing or at least major repairs.

Vapor Barrier replacement must be done correctly, because they’re health issues here as well as structural problems. Florida Anchor and Barrier always includes Fogging for insects, mold and fungus fogging, along with the structural which is, removing all old insulation, re-strapping old duct fittings, installation of duct lift blocks, replacement of leveling shims, foam insulation around all pipes and fittings, replacing insulation with R-13, along with the replacement of the vapor barrier with the newest barrier available.

If you have sagging floor joists in your mobile home then this is the time to repair and replace them to save you the cost of taking the floor apart again, we’ll talk about sagging floors in our next article here.
