MOLD AND MOISTURE CONTROL

COMBATTING MOISTURE

Moisture intrusion is unavoidable in any home, making moisture in the wall cavity almost inevitable—and dangerous if not addressed.Not only does moisture reduce the thermal efficiency of yourinsulation, it can also lead to mold, mildew, and rot.

HELP KEEP WALLS DRY

Moisture vapor, which travels in the air, can enter the home through external air leakage and everyday indoor activities. In fact, an average family of four can create two to three gallons of water vapor per day from cooking, bathing, washing dishes and laundry. CertainTeed’s innovative smart vapor retardant insulation SMARTBATT™ and MemBrain™ prevent moisture build-up and are engineered to help wall cavities dry out.

Remains moisture tight in winter when
humidity in the cavity is low.

Increases permeability in summer to let
moisture escape when needed.
