Moisture Barrier Installation 

Many New Zealand houses would benefit from moisture barrier (vapour barrier) installations. ‘Cold’ and ‘damp’ are often used in one sentence when it comes to the condition of older New Zealand houses.  For the temperature problem, heating and insulation are the obvious solutions. When it comes to dampness, on the other hand, a lack of ventilation and moisture coming from the ground should be high on the list of suspected culprits.

Meet the vapour barrier.

The figures are mind-boggling when you think about it. Even dry ground will produce 25kg of water in a single day (!!!). For the 1.2 million New Zealand homes with a suspended timber floor, that’s dampness going straight into your house!

It’s no surprise that the Healthy Homes Standards for rental properties require you to put a ground moisture barrier in place for all rentals with an enclosed subfloor space.

But even as a homeowner with a home that is damp, it makes sense to lay a moisture barrier to avoid ‘rising damp’. After all, nobody wants a mouldy and unhealthy home for their whānau. Make sure your underfloor insulation is also installed properly as the moisture barrier can’t do the job just by itself.
