Having the proper solution for your home is essential for waterproofing to be effective. Using the incorrect insulation and vapour barrier after installation increases the risk of condensation building up, which can cause mould behind your walls and deteriorate your foundation. This is called a “mould sandwich”.
Do not use a topical membrane on the front if you have moisture or vapour barrier behind your substrate. Select one or the other. The combination of the two barriers that are waterproofed allow for moisture or vapour to be trapped between them. The moisture has no way to dissipate.
Interior waterproofing has increased in popularity over the past decade. People are taking advantage of the unused space in their basements. The average cost to finish a basement is around $50,000. When those kinds of funds are invested towards a project it should be protected.
If not properly waterproofed that investment can be destroyed overnight with one storm. If that were to happen, not only would the drywall need to be replaced, but the flooring, baseboard and all the furniture would have to be replaced as well, in order to ensure no water remains that can turn into mould.

When compared to exterior waterproofing, interior waterproofing is much more cost-effective, which is why the majority of clients opt for it. The price ranges from $65 to $125 per foot. The factors that determine cost are height of the basement, concrete thickness, amount of footage, commercial or residential, accessibility, etc. In order for us to properly give you a quote, contact us so we can do a free onsite assessment.
Make sure you verify with your insurance company if you have any coverage regarding flooding. They should have extra coverage available for purchase. If you mention to your insurance adjuster that your home has seepage, due to existing cracked foundations, and continuous sump pump failures, they may deny your request. There are actually many stipulations that may prevent your claim from being approved. Make sure you’re well versed on the type of insurance coverage you have for your home when it comes to floods. They’re happening more often than you think in Burlington.
