Basement waterproofing types

Exterior basement waterproofing cost

Exterior basement waterproofing is done by excavating the building or house to the foundation wall’s full depth. Excavation is vital because it clears the foundation of any soil or debris. Next, the foundation is waterproofed from the outside using waterproof membranes. The membrane is then topped by a drainage panel that lets the water flows to an exterior drain at the foundation’s bottom.

The cost of exterior basement waterproofing may vary according to the trench’s depth, its accessibility, and how much needs to be restored. However, the costs start at $100 per linear ft. and can vary depending on other factors.

Interior basement waterproofing cost

Interior basement waterproofing is done from the inside of a house and involves the use of waterproofing materials such as a membrane, epoxy injections and sealants, or a drain connected to a sump pump to prevent any flooding in the basement. Interior waterproofing is cheaper and works well in situations where it is not practical to waterproof the basement from the outside.

The cost of interior basement waterproofing starts at around $65 per linear foot. The best interior waterproofing option is to use a membrane together with a drain that will move water out of the home through a trench and with the help of a sump pump.

Factors that determine the cost of basement waterproofing in Toronto

Waterproofing method

As can be seen above, exterior waterproofing is more expensive compared to interior waterproofing. However, this should not be a determinant of the method you use. If you are aiming for a long-term solution, it is better to go for exterior basement waterproofing. Sealants and waterproof paints may not work as well as extensive exterior waterproofing. Consider the pros, cons, and practicality of each method before settling on which to use.

Foundation depth

The depth of your foundation also has an implication on the costs because deeper foundations mean more materials are used and more labour. Foundations are commonly 5-7 feet and dug accordingly.

Fixing Cracks & Crack/Foundation Reinforcement

Before the basement is fixed, we will have to determine the cause of the leak and some adjustments will be made. Some solutions, such as exterior waterproofing, will require soil excavation around the foundation and it will cost more than a solution such as an epoxy injection because these do not need extensive fixing.

Waterproofing materials

The materials to be used also influence costs. Materials will depend on whether you need exterior or interior basement waterproofing solutions or just a foundation crack repair. After we inspect your foundation we will explain all your options and help determine how you can swap materials and keep costs down while getting the same stellar results.

Installation of additional accessories

Additional accessories like sump pumps and backwater valves also influence costs. After choosing a waterproofing method, you may find that you still need these accessories to help drain water away from the house completely.

Labour & installation

Some installation methods are more labour-intensive than others. For instance, exterior basement waterproofing will cost more than interior basement waterproofing because it requires more time, labour, and energy to fix the foundation issues. Further, each company charges differently, even when the job is the same. You have to figure out who you want to work with and why they are the best option.

Is It Worth to Waterproof a Basement?

It is worth to waterproof a basement. If you do not waterproof your basement, you will likely experience floods in extreme weather conditions. Aiding water to seep into the ground properly helps prevent flooding. Waterproofing your basement also helps keep it dry so it can be used in its fullness without having to worry about flooding.

Additionally, waterproofing a basement helps reduce the moisture content in a home. More moisture makes a home hot in the summer and can cause oxidation and destruction. It is essential to reduce the humidity in your home by waterproofing its foundation.

Basement waterproofing is a good investment

Basement waterproofing is a good investment because it helps keeping the water in a controlled setting. If you do not protect your home by waterproofing the basement, it could cost you much more in repairs. Water seeping into the home can cause walls to rot, warp boards, and ruin possessions, which might be costly. Waterproofing the basement is also essential to protecting the home’s foundation from the outside. When water shifts into the ground as it should, there is less risk of the foundation’s ground shifting. This reduces the number of leaks and foundation problems you are likely to experience.

Below, we recap some information about waterproofing prices in Toronto:

  • Exterior waterproofing at Waterproofing PD starts at $100 per linear foot. This price may change depending on how major or minor the work is. Interior waterproofing, on the other hand, starts at $65 per linear ft.
  • You can visit our warranty page to understand waterproofing methods and what goes into a project’s final cost.
