Sealing Your Concrete Foundation Against Water

Eliminate Vapor Transfer

Since their inception, all basements face an age old problem…Moisture. As the foundation walls are below grade, the active wedge created around basement foundation walls creates an easy way for rain water to infiltrate the disturbed ground and wreak havoc. The other problem is vapor. As the ground water fills the active wedge, the concrete block or poured concrete foundation walls soak up the water like a sponge and transfer that moisture to the interior of the basement. This extreme situation causes lumber, joists, and subflooring to absorb excessive levels of moisture leading to sag, cup, mold and fungus and deterioration and rot, not to mention HVAC system overload and improper cycling or constant running, including dehumidifiers.

MaxxBarrier delivers the ULTIMATE and most ADVANCED polymer vapor barrier for concrete slabs and concrete block or poured crawl space or basement foundation walls.
