Transitioning from an ICF Foundation
Our foundation finishing details are an important part of keeping our homes dry and comfortable. We use several different waterproof products to transition from our ICF (insulated concrete form) foundations to our exterior cladding. Using these products ensure our foundations stay protected from water and dampness.
The first product we use is called Colphene, by Soprema. Colphene is specifically designed to waterproof an ICF foundation.
2. Delta Drain
We also use Delta Drain. Delta Drain is an effective method to control the flow of damaging soil moisture and hydrostatic pressure through cracks and gaps in below grade structures. It is an essential element of a complete waterproofing system.
The final product we use is TuffX. We use TuffX as a transition strip between the ground level and the exterior cladding. TuffX is extremely durable and tough.
ICF foundations are known for reducing cold spots and drafts in basements. By waterproofing our foundations we limit the potential for moisture to seep in through the foundation and fuel mold and mildew growth within interior finished basement walls.
