Before calling in a professional to check the wetness in the basement, be sure to check the eaves troughs and downspouts for any debris that might be blocking them. Be sure the downspouts extend at least three feet away from the foundation and the grade around the home should be sloped away from the foundation.

The exterior basement waterproofing method needs excavation and exposing of the foundation wall. First we clean and inspect the outside of the wall for any cracks. Than when excavated, we seal the walls with a waterproofing membrane. Weeping tiles or new drainage is positioned on the side of the footing. The final step is that we check the weeping tile connection to the drain or sump pump to ensure it is working perfectly.
The interior basement waterproofing process is for those who do not want to disfigure the outside appearance of their house. It ensures that landscaping is not harmed in any way. In this method drip moldings and wall vapor/barriers/retarders are installed to collect water seeping from wall cracks. The water is directed to a drain which directs itself to a sump pump and then helps the water to flow out of the basement.
