Proud FoundationTM Insulation System

One thing that everyone wants in a home is more usable space. All too often basements remain cold and unpleasant, suitable only for storage. Our systems approach to homes includes the basement – an often overlooked part of a new home. We put insulation below the concrete slab so it’s warmer to walk on and our exclusive Proud Foundation was designed with exterior foundation insulation and a waterproof elastomeric coating on the outside of the insultation to reduce the chance of foundation cracks or moisture issues due to condensation. This approach makes basements more comfortable and easier to maintain a pleasant indoor temperature. We believe a basement shouldn’t just be the space underneath your home, it should be more of your home.

Our Proud Foundations™ come with a 30 year warranty against leaks!
