Our experts have provided an overview of waterproofing methods, estimated costs and warranties. Why wait for a problem to occur before you fix it when you can prevent it from happening in the first place?

Foundation waterproofing methods

There are many different foundation waterproofing solutions to help fix or prevent wet basement issues. These range from installing a sump pump, foundation anchors, a foundation pier system, a waterproofing membrane, to crack injection. Determining which one works best for you involves identifying the exact cause of your problem and the potential risks. Get an expert to inspect your foundation to get the right answers.

Foundation waterproofing costs

The cost of your waterproofing project is linked to the type of work that needs to be done. Crack injection costs, for instance, differ from installing foundation anchors or a pier system. It also depends on whether you need interior or exterior work or both. Get quotes to estimate your expenses but do not choose a service provider solely based on price.

Foundation waterproofing warranties 

A warranty is only as good as the company that provides it. Selecting the right foundation waterproofing company, therefore, is critical to quality workmanship and avoiding future problems. Check the company or contractor’s credentials to ensure the warranty will hold good.
