Interior Basement Waterproofing

To defend a home against water, basement waterproofing is the best way to do it. When rainwater has the ability to build around the foundation of a home, it is absorbed into the soil. The soil then begins to expand, creating cracks in the foundation. This is where water then has the ability to leak into the home. When this happens, basement repair on the interior of the home comes into play.

If the cracking is not fixed soon enough, this may lead to a costly foundation repair, so it is extremely important to handle them when they begin. Water leaks also can cause health issues the come from musty smells, the growth of mold and mildew, and poor air quality. Most of the air you breathe is circulated from your basement, so this basement repair is needed. Interior basement waterproofing can fix these problems permanently, keeping water out of the home.

The Methods Of Interior Basement Waterproofing

There are a few different methods that contactors will use to waterproof the interior of the basement. These methods consist of:

  • Epoxy Injection - Although this method may take care of any basement wall leaks, it does not mean it is permanent. When seasons change, the walls of your basement may expand and contract, causing the injection to tear and fail.
  • Sealants - These are also considered a temporary interior basement waterproofing method since they are known to fail quite easily. They may get the job done for a while, but they will not last forever.

  • Drain - For this interior basement waterproofing method, a trench is drilled in the floor. A drain is installed around the perimeter of the basement and combined with a sump pump to efficiently move the water out of the home. Vapor barriers combined with insulation can also be used with this method to further protect the walls of the basement.
