Interior Waterproofing

These homeowners had issues with hydrostatic pressure causing water build up in their unfinished basement.

This process of waterproofing repairs water seepage from the inside of your home. It’s a common solution to address issues like dampness, mold growth, or hydrostatic pressure.

The floor is dug out with a concrete breaker to create a trench around the basement perimeter (approx. 8-10” away from foundation wall). Drainage tile (weeping tile), drainage connector pieces, & clear gravel are placed within the trench to collect water and divert it to a sump pump or floor drain. This drainage tile is covered with a layer of concrete afterwards for a level, clean finish. A dimpled sheet of drainage membrane is installed on the interior exposed wall where the trench system has been installed.

Interior waterproofing is a great option for:

  • Hydrostatic pressure issues
  • Properties with no exterior access for waterproofing (covered by a driveway, deck or houses too close in proximity)
  • Affordability as it is a cost-effective solution in an unfinished basement
