Basement Waterproofing – Inside Options for Atlanta, GA, Homeowners
As many Atlanta homeowners know, investing in a basement waterproofing system can be extremely valuable. Water that leaks into your basement can cause your foundation walls to crack or bow, as well as damage to your belongings or finished basement areas. That’s why having a basement waterproofing system is so important. But, there are typically two different types of basement waterproofing solutions to choose from – interior and exterior. So, how do you know which solution will be most effective for your home?
Interior Basement Waterproofing
Interior basement waterproofing systems are often installed as remedial solutions to clean up and address leaks and flooding that have already occurred. Typically, a trench is opened up inside your basement, parallel to the affected area. Then, a drainage system is installed – often a sump pump – to redirect the water out and away from your home. The trench is then sealed shut. This process will dry your basement and prevent future water intrusion. Compared to exterior waterproofing systems, waterproofing the inside of your home is often less costly and is most commonly used after water has already entered the basement.
