Ethical & Systematic
Contractors have the unparalleled opportunity to create the new landscapes that span our cities. We are the innovators and initiators, within this exciting industry; there is no better business to be in. Constantly on the edge of new technology and new ideas, we look forward to moving forward with you in the development of our society. We are not in the business of selling products, our products sell themselves. We sell our commitment to excellence and ethical business practices.
Our ethical and systematic approach to our services guarantees you consistency and dependability. We pride ourselves on our ability to get you the most out of our suppliers. Whether it is Footlock bracing or HouseGuard waterproofing products, we only use those that produce the standards we demand. We believe that no warranty does enough, it does not compensate for lost time, frustration and inconvenience. However we believe in our company and what it stands for, and we hope that our approach to service makes our warranties much more valuable.
Dow® Styrofoam® Board
When we chose a waterproofing system, we wanted to incorporate the new industry standard, Dow® Styrofoam® Board. This product will not compact during the backfilling operation thereby maintaining its R-value. Dow® Styrofoam® Board also wicks water away from the foundation to the Drain Tile system. Many products used, including fiberglass insulation, lose their R-value when compressed during the backfilling process and act as a sponge for the water keeping it close to the foundation. With Sierra Concepts’ commitment to ethical, high-quality products and services we are proud to apply the HouseGuard™ waterproofing system or Cosella-Dörken Delta®-MS dimple board waterproofing membrane.
HouseGuard™ Waterproofing System
This system uses HouseGuard’s™ TruDry XG™ waterproofing membrane. It’s a water-based polymer-modified asphalt membrane spray-applied to exterior concrete foundation walls and protected with Dow Styrofoam® water-channeling rigid insulation boards. It’s an environmentally friendly, low cost, elastic waterproofing barrier that protects your basement against water leaks by bridging non-structural cracks and resisting hydrostatic pressure. This product is sprayed on easily and cures to a minimum film thickness of 40 mils. HouseGuard’s™ system waterproofs, insulates and drains water away from the basement.
Delta®-MS Foundation Waterproofing Membrane
DELTA®-MS is an 8mm dimpled HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene) membrane that utilizes an “air gap” between the foundation wall and the membrane, which acts as a capillary break to stop water from reaching the foundation wall. This unique design provides drainage by gravity for any condensate water from drying concrete, or other incidental water which directs it to the foundation footer and then to the outflow drain lines.
DELTA®-MS is easily installed by unrolling the membrane against the foundation wall. DELTA® Accessories allow for quick and effective fastening of the membrane. The top edge of the product is sealed and protected against intrusion of soil particles or surface water with specifically designed profiles. After applying the membrane, we can complete the waterproofing system by applying styrofoam insulation that is designed to minimize cost and offer maximum value in insulation from heat and cold, water drainage, and protection against wall damage.
