Basement Waterproofing Methods

Basement waterproofing is crucial for protecting your home from water damage and mold growth. Several methods are commonly used to achieve this. These include interior sealants, which are applied to basement walls to prevent moisture penetration, exterior waterproofing membranes that create a barrier against water infiltration, and drainage systems like French drains to divert water away from the foundation. Properly implemented, these methods can ensure a dry and safe basement environment.

Interior Sealants

Interior Sealants

Interior sealants are applied inside basement walls and floors to prevent water seepage caused by cracks, gaps, or porous concrete. They create a barrier against water intrusion but are limited to handling minor water damage without addressing the root causes of moisture issues.
Foundation Crack Injections

Foundation Crack Injections

Foundation crack injections repair cracks in foundation walls internally using liquid polyurethane or epoxy to create a waterproof barrier against water seepage. Ideal for smaller cracks without structural risks, this quick method may not resolve underlying causes or larger cracks that demand more extensive repairs.
Interior Basement Waterproofing

Interior Basement Waterproofing

Interior basement waterproofing manages condensation-caused wetness by funneling water from walls or floors to a drainage system. The system, including a sump pump in a pit, removes water from the basement automatically when levels rise, directing it away from the foundation.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing

Exterior Basement Waterproofing

Exterior basement waterproofing is crucial due to water seeping from the foundation walls. It involves excavating around the foundation and applying a waterproof coating which is effective in preserving building integrity. Despite being costly and disruptive with excavation and potential repairs, it remains the most reliable long-term solution for preventing water infiltration in basements.

Prepare Before Waterproofing Your Basement

Before starting, ensure the basement is dry to prevent electrical shock risks from standing water. Remove moisture by pumping, clearing damp materials, and using fans and dehumidifiers to avoid trapping moisture and further damage.

Clean your dry basement. If mold lingers, use antifungal cleaner or diluted bleach on floors and walls while wearing protective gear. Efflorescence, a mineral residue from water, can usually be removed by scrubbing with a wire brush. Tough cases might need muriatic acid but handle with care. Remove old paint for concrete sealers to stick well.

After getting a huge water bill, it was obvious there was a leak, but not obvious where. Rod came out right away and found the issue on day one. I wish I could give them 6 stars!
