Slab on Grade Foundation
I used this to protect our 2" foamboard I added to an addition to our house that is slab on grade. Considering the amount of work for parging, this product is expensive but very easy to use. Get one if not two people to help you.

        Exactly what I needed.
        I did the exterior concrete block on the back of my house. It was exposed approx. 20" above ground and I had no way to insulate the interior basement wall (bricked interior wall). The 24" width was perfect, 4" into the ground. The material is stiff and has "memory", so you need to roll it out in the sun ahead of installation. Definitely is a summer weather application. I used the inside, outside corner pieces and the joint pieces that came with it. The material cut easily with with a pair of metal cutters. Underlayment adhesive (large tubes) worked well gunned directly onto the foamboard. Use plenty and push the material tightly to get the air out from behind. I used a piece of 2"x4" to get the air pockets and waves out. After I used 2"x4' boards propped against it until the adhesive grabbed the sheet. I also filled in the 4" where the ground was trenched. The sheet does expand and contract, so where you have a vertical joint you need the expansion joints provided. Try to lay it out with as few vertical joints as possible. My 2" foam came out past the bottom of the vinyl siding. I used roof apron gluing it to the top of the foam and then caulked it at the vinyl siding. It comes in a few colors. Overall, it turned out to look good and it made my interior basement wall much warmer. Two people would make it a lot easier!

          Ground breaker worked great. Was fairly easy to cut using a backerboard scoring knife. Easy to install. Try to avoid cutting length-wise. I had a section where I only needed 18" of width, so had to manage that.

          We needed a protective covering for exposed polystyrene foam insulation on a foundation. We had been looking at sheet metal but were pretty sure it would look bad with lots of waviness. This product is fairly stiff so we don't have that problem. It has been easy to apply (use foam-compatible adhesive) and looks good.

          This product is exactly what it was supposed to be. The only thing I can think of that would make it better was if it came with someone to install it.
