Wet Basement Causes

Interior Water Leak

Leaks can stem from a variety of sources, such as showers, sinks, toilets, washing machines, dishwashers, or compromised pipes. When moisture accumulates beneath a bathroom or kitchen area, it could be indicative of an internal water leak.

Ineffective Grading

Improperly leveled land near your residence can result in rainwater or groundwater seeping into your basement. It is best if the terrain surrounding your foundation slopes away from the house. The settling of fill dirt can change this slope, causing water to flow towards your home.

Missing or Faulty Gutters and Downspouts

Effective rainwater management is contingent on the proper functioning of gutters and downspouts. These components play a pivotal role in directing rainwater away from your home’s foundation. When gutters and downspouts are either absent or malfunctioning, rainwater may be inadvertently funneled towards your foundation, potentially triggering issues related to moisture in the basement.

Foundation Cracks

Cracks in your foundation can act as potential entry points for water infiltration into your basement. These cracks might result from external water pressure, known as hydrostatic pressure, exerting force against the foundation, or due to structural problems causing movement in the walls.

Poor or Absent Drain Tile and Sump Pit

Older homes might lack a subsurface drainage system, whereas modern ones could encounter issues with their existing drainage systems, such as blockages, damaged connections, or malfunctioning sump pumps.


Another concern to be mindful of is basement condensation, which transpires when warm, humid air comes into contact with the cooler surfaces of the basement walls and floor, leading to the accumulation of moisture.

How Much does Basement Waterproofing Costs?

Several factors can influence the final cost of basement waterproofing services, including:

Size of the Basement

The size of your basement directly affects the quantity of materials required and the time it takes for the contractor to complete the project. These factors have a direct impact on the overall cost.

Repairing seeping walls is generally quicker and less expensive than addressing extensive flooding. The degree of water damage is a crucial consideration in determining the cost.

Interior waterproofing solutions are typically easier to implement, while exterior methods often involve excavation and specialized equipment. Our technicians work solely on interior basement waterproofing. The complexity of the project can significantly increase its final cost. 

The age of your home can also impact waterproofing costs. If your home was constructed using outdated building codes, you may need to allocate a budget for bringing it up to current standards before waterproofing the basement. This additional work can influence the overall project cost.

The choice of sealant method influences the total cost of basement waterproofing, whether it’s interior or exterior. Our technicians will offer you various options so you can compare their pros and cons, along with their cost.
