What are Vapor Barriers Made Of?

Modern vapor barriers are usually made with polyethylene sheeting, a durable material that is impenetrable by moisture. Generally, this is the best material for a vapor barrier. Using other materials is often why other vapor barriers fail. You might see other vapor barriers made with elastomers, metallized film, or even metal sheets. Most contractors accept that polyethylene is the superior material.
