Floor Edging Highlights

Floor Edging is a moisture barrier, thermal break and slip sheet that allows moisture to pass by the edge of a concrete floor and away from living areas.  It helps prevent shrinkage cracks by allowing the floor to move.  Floor Edging solves wet basements problems permanently and prevents callbacks. 


  • Forms edge of floor at walls — block or poured
  • Separates edge of floor from walls — prevents attaching, moisture transfer and thermal transfer
  • Forms bottom side of floor and separates it from substrate - prevents attaching, floor shrinkage cracking, and moisture transfer
  • It can be used with expansion material and it works in both new and retrofit projects

Floor Edging can also be used as a ventilation board at the top of masonry cavity walls. 

Floor Edging Installation

  • Layout Floor Edging overlapping ends approximately 2”
  • Fabricate inside and outside corners with common utility knife
  • Select proper floor elevation with story pole or snap chalk line – Top edge of Floor Edging must be a minimum of 2” higher than top edge of concrete
  • Cover floor edging and drain field with poly before pouring floor
