Anyone know what would work to protect the "blue foam" insulation applied to the outside of a concrete foundation? Part of it will be covered by backfilling but due to the slope of the lot quite a bit will not be. I would like to use the thermal mass of the concrete so would much prefer to insulate on the outside. Thanks, Ray

In looking at foundation insulation you may want to explore Premier Industries Insul-Foam R-Gard, it is less expensive than Blue or Pink board and has very similar properties. You may want to check on Grailcoat at grailcoat.com, as a waterproofing and parging to protect your insulation. It is useful as a stucco finish also. You may also want to consider using ICFs for your foundation and get even more insulation value as well as the thermal mass of your foundation wall. There are a number of sites that deal with ICFs and energy efficient construction that you might find useful.

We have heard about Superior Walls foundations. This is an insulated precast concrete wall system that is custom made to spec. Their web site is: superiorwalls.com. Has anyone used this type of foundation? I would appreciate any input. Thanks!
