Vapour Barrier

What are Vapour Barriers?

A vapour barrier is an impermeable membrane that blocks the flow of air through the building envelope, and is also an essential part of the building envelope. Because the purpose of a vapor barrier is not obvious, this important component is often omitted or installed incorrectly. The main purpose of vapour barriers is to stop the unwanted entrance or exit of water vapour. The effectiveness of vapour barriers and insulations are intertwined completely; if one isn’t there or installed incorrectly, you can bet that the other will not perform well and you will end up with damage to your building.
