Basement Waterproofing Costs


What it will cost to make your basement dry

If you’ve ever dealt with a flooded basement, we don't have to tell you about the mess. Water causes all kinds of problems. You know how messy, and damaging it can be. Knowing that your basement will stay dry gives you peace of mind. But how much should you have to pay?
Comparing basement waterproofing systems can be tough. It's not apples to Apples. But you can compare waterproofing costs.

Choosing the right basement waterproofing solution

There are several ways to keeping water out of your basement - and getting it out when it gets inside.
Interior basement waterproofing, gets water out of the home after it's inside. The reason the interior is the most popular go-to is price. More times than not, the interior solution is the most cost-effective option.
Exterior waterproofing is another option. The exterior faces two major hurdles.
1) The exterior waterproofing can be a problem if you have a deck.
2) Excavating to install an exterior perimeter drain is expensive.
Don’t accept a “one-size-fits-all” waterproofing. There are things you should consider when looking at basement waterproofing options.
  1. Soil and site conditions
  2. Future basement plans
  3. basement’s size, and shape
the list goes on and on...
Another thing to consider is what happens when the power goes out. Battery backup systems can save you thousands if you lose power.
