Exclamation Vapor Barriers

Some of the vapor barrier under my mobile home is in bad shape. I can't afford to hire a company to come in and do repairs, so looking for advice on how to repair myself, and what materials are best to use. Any help is appreciated!!

If you are talking about the wrap that covers the underside of the MH floor joists - I've made repairs with tar paper.

Yes, do I need to replace insulation or just pull out what is bad? Thank you for your suggestion.

I'd only replace the insulation if/where it's bad or missing.

I forgot earlier welcome to the forums!
