How Exterior Foundation Waterproofing Membrane work as a Moisture Barriers

Used as a foundation drainage solution, see how foundation waterproofing membrane moisture barriers can help control moisture levels around foundations. Moisture barriers hinder or stop moisture from moving from one place to another. Used through-out construction, moisture barriers come in various forms: moisture barrier film, moisture barrier plastic, or concrete moisture barrier.


  • HI I’m Fred Marshall with Advanced Foundation Repair.
  • I’m here to talk to you about exterior foundation waterproofing membrane moisture barriers.
  • Keeping the right amount of water in the soil is important for foundation maintenance.
  • With too little water the soils shrink and your foundation goes down.
  • With too much water the soil expands and pushes your foundation up.
  • To help control situations where too much water is entering the soil, engineers sometimes call for the construction of a moisture barrier.
  • The purpose of the moisture barrier is to keep ground water from moving under a foundation.
  • Moisture barriers are vertical barriers buried in the ground that are designed to prevent water from moving through the ground.
  • For example, a barrier might be glued to the side of the foundation, go down a foot, come out three feet and go down another three feet.
  • Moister barriers can also be made out of concrete or any other water proof material that is approved for the purpose.
  • If you think you’re having problems with drainage, underground water or foundation movement, call the experts at Advanced Foundation Repair, 214-333-0003.

I can't too highly recommend this company. I had work done of my foundation by another company several years ago. That work did not resolve the problem, and that company did not fix. Advanced was recommended to me by mother, who said they were the best in the business. I agree! They were polite, professional, charged reasonable prices, and did excellent work. They also have a strong guarantee that is backed by a trust. I can't imagine why you'd use any other company.read more

Advanced Foundation repair is the only way to go! The engineer, Eric was kind, helpful and informative! The crew under Haynard's watch was unbelievably considerate. The crew was in and out of our house for 5 days. Everyone of them were happy even in the 90 degree weather. They work hard and were very polite. If you saw my house now you would never even know they were here. They cleaned up every night and on the last day it looked like new! Very thankful to have been able to work with them.read more

Advanced recently performed our foundation repair and did a fantastic job! The job took four days and throughout the process, the workers were on time each day, were kind and courteous. They left our house clean each day and took great care in making my wife and newborn comfortable during the repair. They came back out to make adjustments, as was expected, and I am more than pleased with the results. Thanks to Juan Martinez, Miguel Mata and Ernesto Alvarato for doing everything I requested. I highly recommend Advanced Foundation Repair, they know what they are doing.read more
