ICF Basements by BuildBlock

ICF Basement Walls Create Warm, Dry Basements

BuildBlock ICFs are ideal for the construction of basements. There are many advantages to ICF basements.  With ICF basements, the concrete is not exposed to the interior or exterior of the basement wall. The EPS panels on each side of the concrete insulate the basement walls and create a barrier. Basements built with ICFs are much more comfortable and feel like the upper levels, creating more truly livable and valuable space.  With proper waterproofing and installation, ICFs create warm, dry basements for years to come. While an entire ICF struture is preferable, ICF basements can serve as the foundation and livable space for a stick-built or manufactured home.

Waterproofing ICF Basements

Effective waterproofing is vital to ICF basements. BuildBlock recommends and sells the following waterproofing products for basements:
DMX FlexSheet™ Dimpled Membrane for Basements
DMX FlexSheet™’s air-gap membrane technology keeps basements dry, no matter what the weather or soil conditions.
Most basements have cracks of some kind that occur during the curing process. When the soil around the foundation gets wet, it creates a constant hydrostatic pressure against the wall that will push water into the basement, even through the tiniest crack. DMX FlexSheet™ isolates these cracks from the surrounding wet soil, to prevent this from happening. Details.
TAMKO TW-60 Sheet Waterproofing Membrane for Basements

TAMKO TW-60 is a flexible, self-adhering, rubberized asphalt sheet waterproofing membrane with a polymer film on the surface and a removable treated release film on the adhesive side. TW-60 is especially well suited for below-grade waterproofing of basements. Details.
