A below-grade foundation wall with a damp-proof coating
Complete water management strategy for a below-grade wall
Exterior surface of below-grade walls finished as follows: For poured concrete, concrete masonry, and insulated concrete forms, finish with damp-proof coating
Exterior surface of below-grade walls finished as follows: For wood-framed walls, finish with polyethylene and adhesive or other equivalent waterproofing
Foil-faced rigid foam and spray foam can be used to insulate a basement on the interior; use good moisture management techniques to keep the basement dry
Moisture infiltration in below-grade wall
Precast concrete basement walls come to the site with integrated rigid foam insulation and steel-faced concrete studs.
Right – Below-grade concrete has been properly sealed against moisture and is now having insulation installed
Right – The below-grade concrete walls have damp-proof coating
Right – The insulated concrete forms that are below-grade have a damp-proof coating to prevent moisture seeping into the foundation
The poured concrete basement walls are insulated along the inside with 2.5 inches of extruded polystyrene insulation.
The rim band connecting the insulated precast concrete basement walls to the floor joists above is spray foamed to provide air sealing and insulation in this hard-to-seal juncture.
Untreated lumber has been used on a below-grade wall against masonry
Wrong – The below-grade concrete does not have the correct mixture to be impermeable to moisture
Wrong – The below-grade concrete walls do not have any damp-proof coating
Wrong – The insulated concrete forms at the foundation do not have a damp-proof coating
