Waterproofing foundation walls from the outside is a good solution to protect the house foundation from leaks. To do this the foundation wall has to be excavated all the way down to the footing, then it needs to be cleaned and inspected for cracks. Than we fix the cracks with hydraulic cement, apply foundation sealer, install waterproofing membrane and weeping tiles.
The advantage of basement waterproofing done from the outside is that it does protect the walls from contact with water or moisture. When performing exterior waterproofing we get excess to the foundation drain and we do replace it. It is a good time to check the connection of the weeping tile to the drain or sump to make sure it is working properly.
Waterproofing basement walls from inside is the best waterproofing solution when: there is excessive moisture in the soil especially under basement concrete slab, or when the basement is very deep, or when the neighbour’s property is located very nearby. To perform foundation waterproofing from the inside, the basement wall has to be exposed, and the floor excavated along the foundation walls for new weeping tile pipe to be installed. We use Delta MS drainage membrane to direct water to new filtered plastic weeping tile pipe. The advantage of internal waterproofing is that it is not only protecting the basement from water coming through the foundation wall, but also from collecting the ground water from under the concrete slab.
The main factors to consider when choosing between internal or external waterproofing is the nature of the leak, accessibility of the work area, and the depth of the basement. It is always very important to check the weeping tile pipe connections to the storm drain and sump pumps in order to prevent basement floods and foundation leaks. We strongly recommend the installation of an emergency battery backup system and sump pump alarm.

Quick answer: you’d be typically looking at $80-$400 per linear foot (see table below for residential). Yes, this is a pretty large range difference, however there are many aspects that can affect your cost. One must first distinguish between external basement waterproofing jobs from internal waterproofing solutions…due to the differences in process and therefore price. Soil condition end depths are very important factors that may keep costs high. Some parts of city of Toronto and GTA have sandy soils, other parts hard clay with large rocks, making it difficult to excavate using a backhoe. To get understanding of how the price is calculated, we should review and remind ourselves what a basement waterproofing job entails and what it involves.
