Many homeowners are shocked to find out that existing water damage to the interior of their home has been caused by the continuous flow of water through basement floors, windows, and walls. It’s crucial to address leaking and other moisture issues immediately to avoid further damage, which could eventually ruin the structural integrity of your home over time. But what is interior basement waterproofing, and how do you know if it’s the right waterproofing option for your basement? The interior basement waterproofing contractors at Masonry Masters explain everything you need to know below.
What Is Interior Basement Waterproofing?
Waterproofing is the process of protecting your basement from leaks or moisture damage. Interior basement waterproofing is the process of installing a barrier, seal, or drainage solution inside of your basement to eliminate any leaks. As a barrier, a professional may add drainage pipes, seal off cracks, or implement other waterproofing techniques. This is different from exterior waterproofing, where an expert installs a barrier outside of your basement to prevent water from getting in. Interior waterproofing is generally less costly.
If you aren’t sure which option is right for you, talk with an expert! They can examine your space and help you determine which solution will be most affordable and effective.
Why Is It Important to Waterproof Your Basement?
Allowing water to access your basement is subjecting the interior of your home to the adverse effects of water damage. It can include premature rotting of the wood, mold and mildew struggles, and an unhealthy or unpleasant atmosphere. Moisture that comes through cracks in the basement walls will eventually cause severe deterioration of the concrete. Basement wall failure can cause serious safety issues for your home.

How Does Interior Waterproofing Work?
Waterproofing basement walls from the inside involves locating and sealing any cracks in the surface. We may add a durable sealant product to increase moisture protection, creating a barrier that is nearly impossible for water to cross. This will keep the interior of your basement completely dry and free from problematic moisture issues.
Can You Add a Drainage System to Your Basement’s Interior?
Homes that are located in areas where the water table is high, or in a designated flood zone, might require the addition of drainage pipes and systems to lead water out of the basement. A trench can be dug that runs alongside the affected area and pipes installed that lead the water outdoors. The trench is then filled with concrete, resulting in a totally dry basement.
