Waterproofing Your Home – A Smart Investment

The physical construction of a new home all begins at the foundation. We all know that a home’s foundation is what helps ensure the overall stability of the structure; but with the right materials, it can also act as a barrier against moisture and other outside elements that can potentially cause significant damage. Effective waterproofing solutions further the integrity of your home’s foundation, saving you from taking on the costs of repairing interior damage that could have been prevented.

How Can I Effectively Waterproof My Home’s Foundation?

There are several different methods that can be applied to waterproof the foundation of your home. At Radiant Insulation & Drywall, we offer two primary waterproofing solutions along with additional options tailored to meet your specific needs. All of our waterproofing products are manufactured by one of the most trusted names in the industry, Tremco Barrier Solutions ®.

Watchdog H3 Waterproofing ®

Designed to be used in combination with foundation drainage systems, Watchdog H3 Waterproofing spans concrete, sealing cracks to prevent water leakage.

Specifications & Details

  • 10-year performance warranty
  • Withstands up to three feet of water
  • Resistant to soil, mold, and bacteria


TUFF-N-DRI H8 is similar to Watchdog H3 Waterproofing but provides added protection along with optional addons to further promote the strength of the barrier.

Specifications & Details

  • 15-year performance warranty (up to 30 years with addons)
  • Withstands up to eight feet of water
  • Resistant to soil, mold, and bacteria

For Maximum Waterproofing Protection

There are optional addons to the TUFF-N-DRI H8 system that help to maximize the strength of your foundation’s waterproofing. The WARM-N-DRI foundation boards and TUFF-N-DRI barrier boards intensify the waterproofing protection the TUFF-N-DRI H8 system provides. These waterproofing boards also serve as a form of insulation, reducing interior condensation within your basement. When you choose to add either the WARM-N-DRI or TUFF-N-DRI boards to your waterproofing system, you gain the additional peace of mind provided by a full 30-year performance warranty.

DrainStar® Z-Drain

Installed along the footing of your home’s foundation, the DrainStar Z-Drain eliminates the necessity of exterior drain tile or gravel. This drainage solution works alongside the TUFF-N-DRI waterproofing system to whisk water away from the foundation, navigating it directly into a high-grade leakage system. DrainStar Z-Drain is backed by the same 30-year performance warranty as the WARM-N-DRI and TUFF-N-DRI waterproofing solutions.
