Expert Basement Waterproofing Solutions

A basement can be a great addition to any home, giving you extra space for storage, a home workshop, a gym or a private retreat. However, any basement is only as good as it is dry. Since basements are below ground structures, they can be subjected to moisture from both outside, in the form of leakage and seepage or inside, in the form of humidity.

If rain and groundwater cannot drain away properly it can make its way into your basement. Improper soil and poor drainage systems are one of the most common causes of basement wetness. If water isn’t directed away from the home, it will accumulate around the foundation, where it will try to find a way inside.

Now that we have a better understanding of what causes basement moisture, let’s talk about what we can do to prevent it.

- Interior waterproofing methods, such as waterproof sealants, do a good job at keeping humidity levels down, preventing condensation. These coatings can be put onto basement walls and floors creating a waterproof barrier.

- Exterior waterproofing typically requires the excavation of the soil surrounding the foundation of the home. As you can imagine, this can be labor-intensive process, requiring heavy tools and machinery. Once all the soil around the foundation has been removed, a waterproof sealant can be applied to the exterior walls. Ideally, this exterior waterproofing process should occur during construction.
