Install vapor barrier
The vapor barrier is needed especially when renovating old buildings when it comes to thermal insulation. After all, it ensures that no water vapor can penetrate into the insulation. We would like to add some points to the vapor barrier here, the table of contents shows which points are involved.
1. Why a vapor barrier or vapor barrier is important
As already noted, the vapor barrier ensures that no water vapor can penetrate into the insulation material. This is very important, because if it came to that, you could only throw away the insulation material. And the water vapor can lead to very large damage to the house, such as the mold and the insulation provided with steam, would not fulfill their purpose properly. So in summary: The vapor barrier, also called vapor barrier, is extremely important for the insulation, because the water vapor is kept away. You can avoid the mold, which unfortunately hits many houses and ensures a good airtightness. Thus one can also save energy costs again. And the costs are not very important, because nobody has too much money.
2. Install vapor barrier correctly
If you want to use the vapor barrier roof, so work with the vapor barrier film on the roof, you must pay attention during installation that they are really air-tight. If this does not happen, the insulation is basically ineffective. There should be no cracks or holes when installing the vapor barrier film, no matter how small. To use the vapor barrier properly, you must use adhesive tape and sprayable sealant properly. When building a vapor barrier in the loft area, you must use the vapor barrier in the correct level. It is placed inside the insulation material behind the wall cladding. Here you have to make sure that all individual vapor barrier membranes are processed overlapping, so that the vapor barrier can also complete airtight. The barrier foil must be attached to the rafter with the tacker and the areas that have been tracked must then be sealed with the special vapor barrier adhesive tape. Only then is it guaranteed that the barrier layer is also airtight. The individual webs are always glued with the tape. When it comes to wall connections of the film, you can use adhesive cartridges to ensure that everything remains airtight. If the vapor barrier is airtight, a counter battens will ensure that it is fixed. The counter battens should run across the rafters. Of course you have to make sure that the film is not damaged when attaching the vapor barrier. Of course, it must always be properly ventilated with the vapor barrier, whether the loft is now inhabited or uninhabited. The best is the Stoßlüften! Properly ventilate against mold shows this instruction under point 3.

3. Common mistakes when installing a vapor barrier
If you look at how the vapor barrier is installed, you can already see what mistakes can be made. Some people think that small cracks in the insulation would not be so bad and just ignore them. But that's a bad choice because it increases energy costs and can lead to mold. It is even worse if you resort to low-cost adhesive tapes. These are not tuned to insulation work and will not last and you have done all the work in vain. It is always important to work properly, so that the vapor barrier film also serves a purpose and therefore you must necessarily work with the vapor barrier tape! Care must also be taken that attaching furniture and pictures can lead to holes in the vapor barrier, which can lead to devastating consequences.
The vapor barrier film must always be processed well, there must be no cracks or holes, so that you have not carried out the work in vain. The vapor barrier film really only brings something if it is processed properly, including the vapor barrier tape belongs. If you use the film properly and make no mistakes, you will have a big profit, because the cost of energy in the house will be reduced!
