November 14, 2008, Newsletter Issue #147: Wine Storage System Construction -- Vapor Barriers

Tip of the Week

There is yet another consideration to think about when constructing your wine storage system, especially in new construction. If your walls are concrete or stone, and you're using a wine cooling system, you have to install a vapor barrier to prevent the moisture from escaping the cellar.

Your builder should discuss the barrier's specifications with the design professionals. They should also investigate local building codes before they install the barrier. The most common vapor barrier is a 6 mil polyethylene installed on warm side of walls and ceilings.
