Question: What is the skim coat in a crawl space foundation?
Answer: This is the three inch thick concrete which is poured as the covering of the soil in the crawl space. The crawl space is graded with limestone and then six mil visqueen is laid as a moisture barrier. The concrete is poured over the visqueen thus holding the foundation walls from moving inward and holding the moisture out.
