Half height Blueskin for a foundation?
I’m installing perimeter drains around my foundation, 4″ PVC drainpipe with a run to daylight.
I was thinking of waterproofing my foundation with either a roll/brush on rubber compound or the Blueskin membrane.But I don’t trust the brushon stuff down at the footing where the concrete blocks form a seam.
This is where the question lies….here in Canada the Blueskin is pretty expensive so I don’t want to use it except where needed, and I can buy some brushon waterproofing compound at a great price.
I want to run the blueskin up from the footing/cement block joint up the wall about 2-1/2′, then roll on the waterproofing compound the rest of the way up to grade, (2 coats) then install delta dimpled membrane in the normal fashion .
Does anyone think the water would/could make it under the blueskin?
