There are many ways to waterproof the exterior surface.
This innovative feature enables you to waterproof
Triangle panels are easily attached to the exterior of the EconODome frame
with heavy duty 5" screws and 1-1/4" galvanized steel washers (included with all panel kits)
In order to stop any possible condensation
inside the dome and in order to stop
any possible mold growth...a perfectly sealed and
insulated shell made with inorganic materials must be installed outside the building frame.
Installing a continuous layer of insulation
outside the building frame also stops air infiltration.
This all helps to shield the interior from weather.
A non-combustible mold resistant cover sheet is laminated outside the insulation panels
in order to provide a durable, non-combustable, and inorganic cover sheet
under a thermoplastic membrane that will not absorb water and that does not support mold growth.
Commercial buildings are sealed with thermoplastics over a cover sheet over rigid insulation sheeting.
Homes built with EconOdome Kits are insulated and waterproofed using the same exact roofing method
Homes built with EconOdome Kits are protected from the weather (temperature, rain, snow, hail, & wind)
using the same exact roofing methods and materials used to protect expensive hotels and commercial buildings.
We offer three roofing membrane shingle colors (gray, white, or tan).
We offer two types of thermoplastic roofing membrane products:
60mil TPO and 60mil PVC. The brand will depend upon product availability.
PVC thermoplastic membrane will cost 50% more than TPO.

Our dome home kits are called
"EconOdome Kits" for a reason.
Comprehensively designed EconOdome Kits
manufactured by Faze Change Produx

CUSTOM FLOOR PLANS
If you wish to order a custom floor plan
If you wish to discuss design options
We have many already drawn floor plans in stock.
This dome home was built in New Mexico and is
clad with fire safe DensDeck Prime Roof Board.
This southwest style dome home in New Mexico includes a large sunroom between the house and garage.
This home also features custom interior woodwork and three floor levels above the walk-out basement level.
Exterior insulated panels were made on-site.
All on-site labor for this dome home
was provided by family and friends.
More insulation and sheetrock was installed from the inside.
This dome home has a radiantly heated concrete floor
that rests on a raised and retained bed of gravel.
We call this the "MesaBase" floor and foundation.
Click Here & scroll to see more MesaBase info.
A gas water heater and a water circulation pump
are used to heat the concrete floor.
Some geographic locations, where building codes are strict,
will not allow the construction of the MesaBase foundation
without professional structural engineering approval.
Perimeter 2x6 riser walls and 2x6 trapezoids are included
so you can have two floor levels and a place to put doors and windows.
All other materials will need to be purchased locally.
Pre-assembled riser wall frames and trapezoid shaped frames
are assembled at the factory.
Custom framing for doors & windows is included with all EconOdome frame kits.
Triangle panels made of rigid insulation and DensDeck cover this dome.
Screws with large washers were used to install
DensDeck triangle panels over insulation sheeting.
The seams and washers are covered with cloth saturated with resins.
More waterproofing is applied to the surface with paint rollers.
We have found that embedding lapping layers of saturated stretchy cloth
between layers of rubbery waterproof coatings
over the entire exterior surface
helps to ensure a longer lasting waterproof surface.
We recommend the use of Tropi-Cool 100% silicone waterproofing,
if you wish to use paint-on waterproofing products to seal your dome home.
