Default Crawlspace vapor retarder

Long over due first post…and currently studying the ‘Interior Rooms’ course. Is a layer of polyethylene sheeting (vapor retarder) a cause for not entering the crawlspace?

Not at all.
Enter all safe, accessible crawls.

Well! They may have degrees, but that is not an indicator of common sense or right thinking...M. Larson circa 9-27-2018.

So crawl lite and slowly and if you happen to rip the sheeting so be it?

Yep! No big deal. That stuff is very heavy duty.

Thanks, Roy...and I suspect that it makes it a much cleaner and somewhat of a more agreeable endeavor.
