refers to techniques used to prevent water from entering the basement of a house or other building. Effective below ground
waterproofing will include both drainage and sealers.
waterproofing is needed anytime a structure is built at ground level or below ground. Waterproofing and drainage
considerations are especially needed in cases where ground water is likely to build up in the soil and raise the water table.
This higher water table causes hydrostatic pressure to be exerted underneath basement floors and against basement walls.
Hydrostatic pressure forces water in through cracks in foundation walls, through openings
caused by expansion and contraction of the footing-foundation wall joint and up through floor cracks. Hydrostatic pressure
can cause major structural damage to foundation walls and is likely to contribute to mold, decay and other moisture related
Interior sealers will
not provide permanent protection from water infiltration where hydrostatic pressure is present. Interior sealers are good
for preventing high atmospheric humidity inside the basement, from absorbing into the porous masonry and to prevent spalling.
Spalling is a condition where constant high humidity or moisture break down masonry surfaces causing deterioration and shedding
of the concrete surfaces.
Although interior water drainage is not technically
waterproofing, it is a widely accepted technique in mitigating basement water and is generally referred to as a basement
waterproofing solution. Many interior drainage systems are patented as well as recognized by B.O.C.A (Building Officials
and Code Administrators)as being effective in controlling basement water. They function by draining underground water from
alongside the foundation footers and underneath the basement floor.
then channel it with a French drain, PVC pipe, or through a patented product to a sump pump system, which will then pump the
water from the basement. Foundation sump pumps can be installed through do-it-yourself kits, plumber installations, or by
a professional basement waterproofing contractor and generally come in plastic and cast-iron models.

The Right Way (Once And For All)
The significance of any basement waterproofing problem always
depends on the original cause, the shape of each crack if any, and the particular size of each crack. Also, the pattern of
a crack, the crack’s location, and the particular foundation materials originally used are very significant.

Basement Waterproofing Simplified
Water enters the home via the basement wall/floor joint, through cracks in the foundation walls and/or holes created
by faulty or decaying masonry/brick. A perimeter trench drain such as a French drain collects the water before it enters into
Wall vapor barriers/retarders and drip moldings are
used and incorporated into the sub-slab perimeter drain to collect water coming from wall cracks and other foundation wall
defects, such as pipe protrusions. The drain directs the water to a sump pump. The sump pump directs the water out of the
house. Interior basement waterproofing systems should be prepared to work in the case of a power outage,
the failure of a sump pump, and in the face of overwhelming torrential rain.
A proper sump pump, backup sump and/or
battery backup sump pump should be installed in a large sump pit with an airtight lid for safety and to keep humidity from
seeping through to the basement environment, where it can promote mold growth. This airtight practice will also reduce the
possibility of dangerous radon gases for entering the living space. Despite widespread sump pump failures, top-of-the-line
sump pump systems are more reliable than ever.
Exterior basement waterproofing prevents water from entering foundation
walls therefore preventing the wicking and molding of building materials. Waterproofing a structure from the exterior is the
only method the IBC (International Building Code) recognizes as adequate to prevent structural damage caused by water intrusion.
Polymer Based Compounds
Over the past ten years, polymer-based basement waterproofing products have been developed.
Polymer-based products last for the lifetime of the building, and are not affected by soil pH. Polymer-based waterproofing
also has the advantage of a low enough viscosity that it can be sprayed directly onto a wall.
