Shield Your Living Space From Water Vapor
Moisture is the enemy of your home. It can cause poor air quality, mold, mildew, fungus, odors, and damage to moisture sensitive equipment. By installing a low permeability vapor barrier in conjunction with the sealed GrateDrain system by Grate Products, you can protect your basement and home against moisture.
Choose Grate Products For Performance & Choice
At Virginia Basement, we use Grate Products because we know they work. When you choose us to put in your vapor barrier, we can install the barrier of your choice:
- HD FinishShield– Tuffshield is a 16mil cross laminated vapor barrier that is Fire Retardant. It is the most economical vapor barrier and perfect if customers are going to install finished basement walls. Protects against moisture, mold, mildew, humidity, and potential wall leaks.
- ThermalShield– Thermal Shield is a foil faced wall vapor barrier that has double layers of bubbles and true white poly wall vapor barrier on the back. It is the wall vapor barrier of choice for adding additional insulation reflecting indoor heat back into the basement space. Save energy and protect against moisture, mold, mildew, humidity, and potential wall leaks.
Grate Products recommends that a wall vapor barrier be installed on all GrateDrain systems. The GrateDrain was designed to be installed with a wall vapor barrier and Flexi-Flange creating a closed system.
