Exterior Basement Waterproofing:
The purpose of doing exterior basement waterproofing is to ensure that water will never able find its way into the basement’s interior. This process is taken place outside of one’s home. Common practises include: covering walls or your pipe systems with a layer of waterproofing coat. In some occasions, your house might be involved in the excavation process which involves clearing and cleaning areas near your exterior basement foundation. After the dirt has been removed, then the waterproof coatings are applied to the walls.
Exterior basement waterproofing can be very effective to prevent most of the water leaking into the basement, however this method does not prevent leakages internally that are caused by the gaps between the piping systems or the gaps between the walls. Therefore interior basement waterproofing is important as well.
Interior Basement Waterproofing:
This will include installing interior sealants to cover several entry points such as wall cracks, and internal pipe cracks. This method helps to prevent minor clamminess and leaks. This help to combat the condensation process that is causing the wetness.
