Crawlspace, exposed ledge, and vapor barrier

jamesbodellOctober 13, 2008

About 25% of my 16/16 crawlspace is exposed ledge. There is about 12" between the ledge and the underside of the joists. Can I seal the vapor barrier around the ledge or do I need to cover it? I figure Granite does not leach water.

Its not about being cheap, but ease of install. I figure its easier to fasten the barrier to the rock then try to cover between the ledge and floor.
