Product and Material Links
Given the house is just about finished I thought it would be helpful for everyone if I gave out the links to all of the "special" materials we used in our house along with links to where they came from for more information. Hope this will help!
Sub Slab Radon Barrier:
Reef Industries T90 Griffolyn - roughly $0.40 per sqft - shipping included
This product was used instead of 6 mil poly due to the high radon in our area and came in 1 sheet sized for our slab. Very happy with this product!
MasterSeal HLM 5000
This product was used off label as a capillary break. We ran into some questions of EPS foam melting with a liquid applied capillary break. We called technical assistance and they assured us it would work for our application. No complaints here
AMVIC - 13" Blocks - 2.5" EPS / 8" Concrete / 2.5" EPS
We chose this over Logix due to minimal waste. When we purchased them the Plumwall bracing was a "free rental". Check out this system: http://www.plumwall.com/
We used a double below grade system:
2) American Wick Drain Fabric - http://www.americanwick.com/uploads/documents/Residential%20Brochure-2009.pdf
We found this at our local Habitat for Humanity restore for $2 per 10 oz Tube. We went though multiple cases! I love this product and I hate it! It sticks to EVERYTHING and doesn't come off. We had a slogan - "If it is Grey DON'T TOUCH IT" Even when installing it when it was 20 degrees outside it was flexible, and sticky.
