What is drain board or dry board?

Any board used to support and facilitate the drainage of water in, on, or around your construction is considered to be a drain board. However, more specifically, drain board is a specialized product made for the purpose of directing unwelcome water away from the space you are protecting.

Typically the board is made of completely waterproof components, and lines the inside of below-grade foundational walls.

The best drain board products are manufactured to stand up to constant moisture if necessary, handling as much or as little moisture or water as needed. A good example is Mar-flex FiberDrain Board. This is a semi-rigid board made from inorganic glass fibers; its unique design promotes effective water drainage while still retaining the board’s R-Value.
