Basement Waterproofing Costs & What You Should Know


Contact Wet Basement Resolutions

Basement waterproofing restores the warmth and cosiness to your home, and if you have damp and mold problems you should definitely consider applying a solution sooner rather than later. Damp can eventually lead to serious problems, and can even damage the structural integrity of your home.

You might be concerned about the costs and practical details of basement waterproofing, and this could be putting you off making a move in the right direction? We are here to clear some of the air.

Which Solution Is Best For You?

First of all, there are a wide number of basement waterproofing solutions available, and these vary immensely in price. As a general rule, the more all-encompassing and long lasting the solution, the more expensive it is likely to be. The exterior waterproofing solution requires excavation, as well as application of expensive materials. Although it is the most costly, it offers lifelong protection against damp, and adds significant value to your property, as well as giving the maximum benefits for your basement which is many cases can help save problems associated with plumbing and as such a professional plumber is recommended to look into these problems more properly. Interior solutions are also available, and are often called “negative-side” solutions. They work to redirect water that is inside your home to the outside using drainage and pumps, or to waterproof the interior walls using a variety of methods. These solutions are less expensive than exterior waterproofing, but do not offer the same level of protection.

If you have a specific problem at hand, such as a crack in a wall, then you will require a very specific solution. The cost of the job will depend on the situation at hand, and can vary immensely depending on what is needed. Sealant is inexpensive, where as larger repairs to walls and foundation don’t tend to come cheap.

How To Know The Costs Of Basement Waterproofing

Asking a basement specialist the set cost of waterproofing, is a bit like asking someone how much a new kitchen will cost, without them ever seeing the size of the room, or knowing what features or fixtures you want. There really is no set price without understanding the situation, and what is required to resolve it.

For this reason, Wet Basement Resolutions offer a free consultation. This allows us to take a look at the problem, and discuss your options with you. We can talk to you about what solutions are available, how effective each one will be, and the relative costs of the work. If you decide on a certain solution, then we can offer you an accurate no obligation quotation.

Before a professional has taken a look at the basement for themselves it is impossible for them to provide you with any sort of accurate quote, so be weary of those who do!

Price Guideline For Basement Waterproofing

Having said that, we can include a very rough price guide for various basement waterproofing services. This should not be taken as being accurate, or as a quotation. We can only offer accuracy after knowing the specific problem, the severity, and the solution that you would like to take. Here are a few example prices for basement waterproofing solutions. We offer many other solutions and services that are not on this list:

Exterior Excavation & Waterproofing: The most expensive solution, but also the most effective and long lasting, providing maximum protection for the lifetime of the property, and adding tremendous value to your home. Averages between $20,000 and $30,000.

Drainage Systems: Interior solutions tend to be less expensive, and redirect water away from your basement interior. Drainage systems start at around $2000+

Sealants: Can be as inexpensive as $5-$10 per square foot, but not always the most effective long terms solution.

Foundation Or Wall Cracks: A crack in a foundation can be very expensive to fix, and can cost between $500 and $15,000 depending on the severity.

Consider What You Want To Accomplish

It is important to consider what you want to accomplish with your basement waterproofing. If you need fast and effective relief from damp, but have a low budget to work with, then an interior waterproofing solution is a likely choice.

If you can afford to spend more, and want to ensure that your property stays protected for life, then a exterior waterproofing solution may be the way to go, and makes for an investment that raises the value of your home.

If your basement is being dampened by a specific problem such as a crack in the wall, then it will be necessary to fix this problem. You can then consider whether your property requires additional waterproofing.
