What are the costs associated with basement waterproofing?
Without knowing the potential negative and costly effects of water in your basement,
most homeowners might put off solving their basement water issues because they
perceive the cost of basement waterproofing as being very high. A lot of homeowners
don't actually realize the importance in protecting their basement against leaking, water
damage, property damage and health risks like mold.
Investing in basement waterproofing now can actually save you money in the future.
Costs associated with wet basement problems can include a number of different things
including, damage to drywall, furniture replacement, carpet, electrical systems, interior trim,
mold removal and more. On a positive note, basement waterproofing should pay for itself
because it almost always increases the value of your home. A waterproofed home is a lot
more likely to sell than a home with water problems. You should always recoup the cost of
basement waterproofing in your home once you sell the home. A leaky basement can
cause mold and mildew to grow, which is very unsafe for you and your family.
So what is the cost of basement waterproofing? Basement waterproofing can typically
cost anywhere between $700 to $10,000 depending on the size of the problem, area of the
water problem, type of waterproofing system used and size of the house. There are several
different types of basement waterproofing services. Here are the three most common
basement waterproofing solutions:
No Dig Injection Waterproofing | Exterior Basement Waterproofing
No dig Injection Waterproofing provides a waterproofing company the ability to not dig
up landscaping, sidewalks and driveways to waterproof a crack in the foundation wall.
With a material that adheres to the foundation wall from the outside of the home or
commercial property, it seals and waterproofs the crack, there is no digging and less
mess to clean up. No dig injection waterproofing also is typically more affordable that an
interior drain tile system. Read more about our no digging injection waterproofing system
Interior Drain Tile Waterproofing Systems
Interior drain tile systems are typically the most used and most effective type of basement
waterproofing if there is hydro-static pressure and water is coming into your basement
from the floor or the seams where the basement floor and basement walls meet. An
interior drain tile system will run the water under your floor through the drain tiles to a
sump pump that will take your water outside the home to a proper drainage area. Read
more about interior drain tile waterproofing systems here.
Exterior Drain Tile Waterproofing Systems
An exterior drain tile system is placed outside the home, under the ground and around
the foundation walls and will carry the excess water to a drainage area away from the
home. You can read more about exterior drain tile waterproofing systems here. To get an

Waterproofing your basement is not going to be a type of home improvement job you
should do yourself. Unless you have the knowledge and equipment to do the waterproofing
job, the best option is to hire a professional and experienced basement waterproofing
company to manage the project and correct the water problem. There a many basement
waterproofing companies out there. The key to hiring a honest and experienced basement
waterproofing contractor is to have them come out and give you, not only a free estimate
but make sure they consult you on what the problem is, why the water problem exists and
how they will correct your basement water problem. A waterproofing “consultant” that
will explain the problem and process to you and reasons behind what they are going to do
for you to correct the water problem is key in feeling comfortable with the company and
feeling knowledgeable and secure about solving your basement water problem.
