Internal basement waterproofing
Internal basement waterproofing systems are basement drainage systems that are designed to manage the water coming into your property rather than preventing the water entering using a physical barrier that generally involves a membrane or basement tanking. Put simply, an internal basement waterproofing system controls and channels water using a combination of modern wall waterproofing systems that act as an umbrella by catching any water entering the basement and directing it to an innovative basement drainage system and eventually to an advanced sump pump system that simply pumps out and removes the water.
Advantages to internal basement waterproofing
An interior basement waterproofing is generally more affordable than other basement waterproofing systems, only takes a couple of days to install and is generally much easier to maintain as there is no need to do any exterior excavation. Moreover, as the water is managed, there is no risk of hydrostatic pressure building up on the basement or cellar walls due to high ground water levels which inevitably will lead to a failure if traditional basement tanking methods are used, especially in areas where there is a risk of structural movement or vibrations.
More often than not, interior basement waterproofing systems come with a basement & cellar guarantee or warranty that can offer ‘peace of mind’ to anyone investing in a basement conversion.
