Foundation Waterproofing, "ground roofing"

Its common in my area to have problems eith water in the basement...Ive heard that its also common to have a "ground roof" (or plastic that under your dirt by your foundation extending about 18 in and inclined - so that water that may be falling frome your gutter - is directed away from your foundation)...Im interested in doing this (because I have a water prob with my basment), but Ive had a bit of trouble finding more info on this topic...Im mostly interested in what to buy and where to buy it...Ive attached a word doc with the little info Ive found...(you may have to blow up the pic a bit - you might see that it recomend EPDM on top of 1 in foamboard)...

Foundation Waterproofing, "ground roofing"

Did you look up, "Foundation Waterproofing"?

I think I will see if there is a better area on this site to move this to, for you.
