Vapor Barrier Installation

At Zhe Industries, we recognize the critical role that a dry, mold-free crawl space plays in the overall health and structural integrity of your home. A damp or moist crawl space not only attracts mold, fungus, and mildew but can also lead to wood damage and structural issues that extend far beyond the crawl space. This is why it’s vital to install high-quality vapor barriers in your crawl spaces.

Why Vapor Barriers are Essential

Crawl space water and humidity can be more than just a minor inconvenience; they can cause significant damage to your home and pose serious health risks. To combat this, vapor barriers are an effective solution that can seal out moisture, ensuring the longevity and health of your home.

At Zhe Industries, we specialize in professional vapor barrier installations designed to keep your crawl space dry and protected. Drawing from industry-leading practices, we offer a moisture barrier system that ensures the structural integrity and overall health of your home.

Understanding Vapor Barriers

A vapor barrier is a heavy-duty plastic sheet that covers the walls and floors of crawl spaces. This liner effectively manages excessive moisture and protects against water vapor permeation. By preventing mold growth, wood rot, and pest invasions, a vapor barrier serves as a comprehensive solution for maintaining your home’s health.

as a young female homeowner it’s paramount to me that i feel comfortable with the workers in my home and all of the gentleman i encountered with zhe were wonderful. i got 3 estimates in total to have the insulation in my attic taken out and replaced, and brian’s was by far the best value with the amount of work that needed to be done. i have a few other home projects i’ll need done in the future and i certainly intend to have zhe industries complete those! thank you so much to the fantastic team that came out 🙌

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. First picture was from April with an outdoor temp of about 89F and the second picture was from June 23rd with an outdoor temp of about 101F. Ceiling measured 30c/86f in the first picture and 19.3c/68f in the second picture. It's definitely working to keep our conditioned air inside our home and the hot air in the attic! We had Zhe Industries insulate and air seal our attic around mid June and it has been unbelievable how good of an investment this was. I'm not certain we'll see much in savings this year as our AC pretty much runs full stop from morning until later in the evening but it is much more comfortable. Another huge added bonus for us was the noise deadening. Since we had so little insulation or none in our attic in the first place it basically acted like a guitar and we could hear every noise from outside. We also live under the Oceana flight path so there's tons of jets flying throughout the week at all hours. Since we now have much more insulation and coverage than before outside noise has probably dropped by at least 60 to 70 percent. Even the jets don't over power indoor conversations and we can barely hear when people are mowing their lawns. The crew were polite and very professional. It took about half a day to remove the old insulation and install the baffles and then a short hour or so for them to blow in the new insulation. Overall very satisfied and would highly recommend their services.

I interviewed 8 Roofing companies. Brian immediately stood out from the crowd for his professionalism. His pricing was very competitive. It was a big project for me so I was a little anxious going into the process, but he reassured me. Everything was gonna be perfect and he was right. They got the roof done and a day and we’re very thorough with all the cleanup. I have lots of areas where there are flowers Pots, including swimming pool. Their cleanup was exceptional. I had an area on my roof that required some flat roofing expertise, and he was able to provide the best solution with the very best warranty. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who’s looking for a top class a contractor who knows what he’s doing prices it fairly and gets the job done quickly.

Brian and his team provide top notch service. As they say, ..."From the rooftop to the crawl, one call" Brian provided quick, accurate, and detailed estimates. His prices are very competitive and fair. His employees are all very professional and treat their customers with respect. They listen to your concerns and answer your questions without delay. If you need insulation, roofing, or new gutters, make one call to Brian and rest easy knowing you did yourself a big favor.

I needed a roof replacement and new insulation for my new home. I chose Zhe industries to do the job, and my roof and attic look brand new. Most notably, the new insulation keeps my home at the desired temperature for much longer and the new roof now keeps the weather out. I needed it done right the first time up and Zhe Industries delivered Top-notch service and professionalism while choosing the best quality materials to do the job. They were fair with pricing and as a bonus, they offered a military discount for my service.

I recently had attic work done by Zhe Industries, LLC and had a fantastic experience. Brian, the owner, provided a thorough and free inspection, showing kindness and punctuality throughout. He and his team were quick to understand my concerns, answer questions, and accommodate my schedule. They were also the most affordable option among quotes I received. The team's efficiency and effectiveness were remarkable, completing insulation removal, sanitization, air sealing, fan replacement, and new insulation in under 12 hours. Brian ensured quality throughout and my home now feels brand new. Highly recommend Zhe Industries, LLC for their professionalism and excellent work.

I purchased my home in Acredale in March of 2023. It needed a number of repairs and upgrades. By the Fall, I noticed that the insolation in the attic was not doing the job and was in really poor condition. I had already spent far more than I expected for the other repairs and was thinking about just filling in the lean areas myself. I noticed a smell in the attic and found rodent droppings. I did some research and decided that the attic was more of a priority than other projects I planned. I got some estimates but did not feel confident in what these salesmen were saying. I looked one last time and found Zhe. I liked that they seem to have a direct connection to the manufacturer of the material they use. Brian came to give the estimate. He answered my questions in detail and outlined exactly what was needed to do the job correctly and to code. He and his assistant, Dave, came and finished when they said they would. They kept the house neat as they worked and had no problem answering any additional questions and allowing me to see the different stages of the job along the way. Both of them were friendly and hard-working professionals. Brian was also very cooperative in the way the paperwork was handled. The work they did came out very well. They sanitized and sealed the whole attic, eliminating the leaks and smell. They made sure the airflow is correct for proper ventilation and raised the “R value” above the current code requirements. The other companies offered less for more than I paid. My house is warmer, quieter, and that funky smell is gone. I have already passed Zhe’s contact info to a close friend.

Fall of 2023 I solicited quotes from a few insulation contractors and found Zhe Industries had the most efficient and clear communication, as well as reasonable pricing, so we hired them. The work was done on the days agreed upon, cleanup afterwards was good, everything done as discussed. I would recommend. (The insulation in our 1960s ranch was very insufficient before this project, I am pleased to see how much our gas usage has gone down these cold months compared to last year.)
