Which Foundation Waterproofing Method is Right for you?
Exterior vs Interior Basement Waterproofing
Both interior and exterior waterproofing methods have their own advantages and are often used in combination to provide comprehensive protection against water intrusion. The choice between interior and exterior waterproofing depends on factors such as the severity of the water issue, the condition of the structure, budget constraints, and local building codes.
Interior waterproofing - involves addressing water issues from within the structure, typically in the basement or foundation walls. It focuses on managing water that has already entered the building and directs it away to prevent damage.
Exterior waterproofing is a more comprehensive, but also more expensive basement waterproofing approach that involves preventing water from entering the structure in the first place. It is typically done during the construction or renovation phase of a building.
Before you decide on which basement waterproofing method to go for, we highly recommend consulting a professional basement waterproofing contractor who will design the right approach for your specific scenario.

Basement Waterproofing can Include Some of the Following Services
One of the first steps in the basement waterproofing process is to design the right solution for your goals, the extent of the foundation damage, and your budget. Here are a couple of services we pick from when designing a solution for your property in Cambridge.
Exterior waterproofing is a process of applying protective measures to the exterior surfaces, such as foundation walls, of a building or structure to prevent water infiltration.

A sump pump is used to remove water that has accumulated in a sump basin or pit, typically located in the basement of a home or building. The sump pump is designed to automatically turn on when the water level in the sump basin reaches a certain level, and pump the water out of the pit and away from the building. It is important to make sure that the sump pump is properly maintained & services as a broken sump pump can lead to a basement flood.

Interior waterproofing does not prevent water from entering the foundation, but can help manage the water that has already made it in and pump the water out.

Foundation repair involves addressing structural issues and damages in a building's foundation. It typically includes identifying and addressing problems such as settling, cracks, or shifting in the foundation walls or slab, and implementing corrective measures to stabilize and restore the structural integrity of the foundation, ensuring the long-term stability and safety of the building.
Foundation crack repair refers to the process of fixing cracks that have developed in the foundation walls or floor of a building or structure. It typically involves identifying the source of the crack, cleaning the area, and applying appropriate sealing materials or injection techniques to prevent further water infiltration and structural issues. When left unrepaired, foundation cracks can lead to basement water leaks, and serious structural issues, as well as water intrusion, mold growth, and other problems.

Basement Waterproofing Reviews
What Our Clients Say?
I used Aquamaster for two separate home waterproofing projects and I was extremely satasified with their work and price. Their team are highly skilled, thorough and were able to complete the 10.5 hour job in one day. They were even kind enough to seal my window frame after I noticed a minor leak. I would highly recommend Aquamaster for all your waterproofing and plumbing needs.
The Aquamaster team is absolutely fantastic! They went above and beyond to diagnose and correct the problem that I had with my basement plumbing caused by old pipes and persistent tree roots. I used them once in 2012 and in 2020. I cannot say enough good things about this team - Highly recommend.
Aqua Master quoted me a very fair price for waterproofing and finshed the job ahead of schedule. We haven't had any water issues in our post-war hm since then. Highly recommend this business for its professionalism and quality of work. Hire with confidence!
