Re: Crawlspace Poly


Assume you referring to POLYisocyanurate foam board insulation as more people call vapor barrier "visqueen" than the few that say "POLYethylene film?"





And yes I googled the spelling of both

Re: Crawlspace Poly


I think the term visqueen might just be used regionally. I had always heard it called visqueen when I lived further south but when I moved to tenn nobody knew what it was - they all call it plastic.

Re: Crawlspace Poly


LOL, so we will have to wait for the op to clarify whether he is insulating the crawlspace walls or covering the soil with a vapor barrier.

bluefish, your climate region (or nearest big city) added to your profile also helps.
