Waterproofing Solutions available through BuildBlock

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.  Moisture can also get into basements through capillary action  which acts like a sponge and draws water from areas of high concentrations (exterior soils) to areas of low concentrations (interior basement walls) especially in the presence of minimal foundation protection. 

The foam portion of ICFs permits very little passage of water by it self. Combining it with either a peel and stick membrane, dimpled membrane or both offers the ultimate protection from damp basements.

Dimpled Membrane

DMX AG™ creates an air gap between wet soil and your basement wall, allowing the poured concrete and concrete block walls to breathe and provides a clear negative side drainage path to disperse any ground moisture that might find it way behind the membrane. Wet soil never touches the wall next to your living space, thus reducing the chances of water infiltration into the basement.

 

Sheet Waterproofing Membrane

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.
