Re: Vapor Barrier Question

Thanks guys, I contacted the company and they admitted to the poor installation. They are supposed to come back out Tuesday and fix it along with some other things that's not up to par. It's sad how there's no pride in people's work anymore..

Re: Vapor Barrier Question

I wasn't trying to blame them for the water line.. I just noticed how shoddy (in my opinion) the vapor barrier was installed. I was just wondering how they were "supposed" to be installed..

Vapor Barrier Question

What's the best method for installing a vapor barrier on the ground under a doublewide?? Should the edges be taped??

Re: junction boxes: (jb)

Are you adding or replacing lights?? There's shouldn't be any hidden junction boxes to find. There's really not much different between electrical in a mobile home and a stick built home. Some boxes and materials look different because of the way the home is constructed. Can lights can be added eaisl...
