Waterproofing membranes and soon-to-be cracked foundation
After absorbing the valuable resource that is GBA I’m wondering how effective peel & sticks or fluid applied water proofing are when all foundations will eventually crack.
Is the approach crack prevention? Would waiting x days for cracking before waterproofing work?
Does waterproofing have enough flexibility or give to account for eventual cracking?
Additional context: I’m in Zone 5 in the US Northeast and have been researching for a 3 story build with 2 stories below grade to daylight.
