Our Services: Interior vs. Exterior Waterproofing

Waterproofing can be done from inside or outside the foundation at here at Water Tight Basements we offer both options. However, it’s important to understand the difference before choosing the right option for you.

Exterior waterproofing, which consists of installing a waterproof system along the base of the foundation wall, is far more expensive and requires much more disruption to your property. It requires heavy machinery to reach the foundation of your home, uprooting soil, landscaping and patios in the process. When repairs are needed, the system needs to be re-dug and replaced.

Internal waterproofing, however, is far less invasive and very rarely clogs. It’s the most affordable and reliable way to waterproof your basement. Using a French drain system, water is able to travel through your basement’s foundation. Internal waterproofing uniquely alleviates hydrostatic water pressure from under your basement floor, contributing to the overall longevity and health of your home.
