Interior & Exterior Basement Waterproofing Performed for Atlanta, GA, Homeowners

Basement Waterproofing Atlanta GAThere are few things that cause as much stress as a wet or flooded basement, especially for homeowners who have had their basement finished with expensive carpet, furniture, and electronics. Plus, it’s not uncommon for homeowners to keep valuables or other family keepsakes in the basement for storage, and they can be destroyed if ground or rainwater floods the basement as a result of cracks in the foundation or the lack of a proper water removal system. To avoid these problems, and others like them, many Atlanta, Georgia, homeowners opt for basement waterproofing systems.

Generally speaking, there are two main types of basement waterproofing methods – interior and exterior. While they perform the same purpose of keeping your basement dry, there are key differences between the two types. Let’s explore further:

Interior Basement Waterproofing

Interior waterproofing is often used as a remedial measure for homes that have experienced water infiltration. However, it can be used as a preventative measure, as well. Typically, interior waterproofing involves the installation of a covered trough that collects any water that seeps through the foundation. The water is then moved – with the assistance of a sump pump – away from the foundation and out of the home.

Exterior Basement Waterproofing

Exterior waterproofing is a bit more involved than interior waterproofing. The dirt and soil surrounding the foundation is excavated to expose the foundation. From there, the existing drainage system can be cleaned and repaired, or a moisture barrier can be installed to deflect water away from the home and prevent it from ever seeping into the foundation.
