Methods of constructing dry, fully insulated basements: NH17-135/1991E-PDF

report on phase 1 of the Ontario Basement Research Project /

“The Ontario Home Builders' Association has commissioned a research and demonstration project to investigate critical aspects of basement wall performance. Specifically, this project addresses the problems of water leaks and examines the feasibility of installing full-height insulation at the time of construction. The OHBA project encompasses only concrete and concrete block-based basement constructions, as noted. Most Ontario builders use these constructions. Some of the upgrading methods or systems that are brought forward here may of course be effective for other basement structural materials as well. The goal is simply to find practical methods of constructing dry, fully insulated basements"--Introd., p. [1], 3.
