Today’s blog examines Water Control Systems versus Exterior Waterproofing and will help you understand the two methods used to stop a leaky basement. There are two options available to solve wet basement problems in the Twin Cities: interior or exterior. What are the differences? What Method is best for waterproofing your home or business?
Many companies claim to offer to waterproofing, when in fact they are installing water control systems. Interior systems are installed along perimeter walls inside your basement, which requires cutting up your basement floor. These water control systems are a band-aid which masks the problem and can cost three or four times the cost of exterior solutions.
Interior Waterproofing aka Water Control Systems
This method should never be called waterproofing, it actually called Water Control. Water control systems allow the water in, in order to pump it back out. Interior work utilizes drainage inside your basement to control the water that is entering and directs it to a sump pump.
This is like applying a band-aid to your leaky basement problem.
Exterior Basement Waterproofing
True basement waterproofing is accomplished only on the exterior and having proper drainage systems and to prevent water from entering. Proper drainage starts with shedding water away from the home.
Our Basement Waterproofing is performed exclusively on the outside of your home. Our Exterior based waterproofing corrects the problems that cause seepage. Water control systems deal with the seepage in after it has entered your basement.
