Interior vs. Exterior Waterproofing


Many homeowners are completely uninformed on the differences between interior and exterior basement waterproofing systems. Are you exploring which option will work best for your home in the Philadelphia region and surrounding area? Here we explain these two basement waterproofing options to hopefully make your decision and process a bit easier.


Interior basement waterproofing is more often than not a remedial solution after water has already entered and the home. Exterior waterproofing is more of a preventative method for keeping basements dry. These systems are used to direct water out of your home. This usually includes digging a trough to collect water followed by a sump pump. The sump pump moves water away from your basement and foundation, ensuring it remains dry.


Exterior waterproofing is a bit more involved than interior systems. They are installed on the outside of your foundation to prevent water from ever entering your basement in the first place. This requires we excavate the soil around the home to expose the foundation. Then, a durable waterproof coating is adhered to keep it sealed off from the ground and any water trying to make its way in. Although it is more extensive then interior systems, exterior basement waterproofing is often a very effective method. It’s know to withstand years of storms and flooding.
