The Case For Waterproofing Your Basement From The Inside

The Case for Basement Waterproofing from the Inside.

Water intrusion into basements is one of the most destructive problems that you can have in a home.  Mold, Rot, Rusted appliances /mechanical systems, Odors, and other related problems caused by high humidity throughout the house are the issues that can result.

Waterproofing in the modern era is generally done from inside the home.  You may ask yourself why.  This article articulates my thoughts on the topic.

#1 Cost: Attempting to eliminate water intrusion from outside the home is generally very expensive and labor consuming.  The crew attempting to do this work would be damaging mature landscaping, may have to dig trenches around the effected perimeter of the home using heavy equipment or by hand.  This excavation process could further damage the home’s foundation.  Hardscapes are in the way and may require elimination or extensive damage to install the water proofing solution.  The combination of expensive collateral damage and the cost of damaging land and hardscapes create extensive cost..

#2 Disruption:  All construction projects at your home are disruptive.  Projects that include extensive excavation and moving land are particularly disruptive and unpredictable.  The weather may lead to periods of time where no work can be done due to rain or freezing weather.  Inside systems can be installed with a great deal of reliability and consistency.  Interior systems generally represent a project, that when properly staffed, can move from inception to completion in just a few days.

#3 Reliability: Interior French Drains and Vapor/Water Screen systems like those used in Basement Systems Designed waterproofing systems are reliable and maintainable.  Exterior French drains are subject to environmental conditions that are more difficult to control.  The location of exterior French drains make them virtually impossible to maintain over the lifetime of the property.  For this reason, modern day waterproofers generally design and install interior systems.

While maintenance of gutters and grade and any drain system that you can take care of is important in taking care of the integrity of your home and it’s ability to keep water out, the corrective actions required to resolve problems is best left to systems designed for the inside of the building.

Call 3 Pros Basement Systems to have them design for you a world class water proofing system using Basement Systems designs.
