Popular Basement Waterproofing Methods

Did You Know

Basement waterproofing is an important step in protecting your home from moisture and water damage.

Basements are highly susceptible to water intrusion due to their location, often below grade and near bodies of water or seepage sources like broken sewer pipes. Basement waterproofing can help prevent the accumulation of moisture which can cause mold growth, wood rot and other damage that can be costly to repair. There are a number of different methods used for basement waterproofing, depending on the particular needs and conditions of the space in question.

 

Exterior Basement Waterproofing involves applying a waterproof membrane or sealant to the outside walls of the basement as well as around windows, doors and any penetrations in the foundation wall. This type of waterproofing can be effective in preventing water from entering the basement, but can be costly and time consuming to install.

 

Interior Basement Waterproofing involves applying a waterproof sealant or membrane to the interior walls of the basement, as well as any penetrations in the foundation walls. This is usually done by injecting a sealant material into cracks or openings around windows and doors, as well as through holes drilled into the foundation wall. This method can be more cost-effective than exterior waterproofing, and it also allows for better access to plumbing, wiring and other services within the basement space.

 

Sump Pumps are an important component of any interior basement waterproofing system. A sump pump will help draw out excess moisture that accumulates in the basement, and can be used in tandem with an interior waterproofing system for added protection.

 

Interior Basement Drains are also a good option for removing water from the basement. Basement drains are typically installed at the base of all interior walls of the basement to create channels for any water that accumulates on the floor. The drains then lead to a sump pump, which pumps out any excess water and prevents it from seeping into other areas of the home.

 

No matter what method you choose, proper basement waterproofing is essential in protecting your investment and keeping your family safe and healthy. With a professional assessment and careful installation, you can ensure that your space stays dry and free of moisture-related problems.
