moisture migration

moisture movement

1. The process by which moisture moves through a porous medium, such as a wall construction, as a result of differences in vapor pressure.
2. The effects of such movement on the dimensions of a material such as concrete, mortar, cement paste, or rock.

If there is no vent in the vicinity, check the band joists and, if they are not fully insulated, please do so by placing R-19 fiberglass or Roxul insulation tightly against the band joists throughout the crawl space and staple a plastic vapor retarder to the floor sheathing, the sides of the joists and the mud sill in each space to protect the insulation from moisture migration.
