Which Foundation Waterproofing Method is Right for you?

What are the Differences Between Exterior Basement Waterproofing & Interior Waterproofing?

There are two main methods of basement waterproofing - exterior waterproofing and interior basement waterproofing. There is a couple of major differences between the two approaches:

  • Location - the main difference between the two methods is where they are applied. Exterior basement waterproofing is done outside of the foundation walls and is designed to prevent water from entering the foundation. Interior waterproofing is done on the inside of the basement and is designed to help manage water that has already entered the basement. This way interior basement waterproofing is rather a water management solution.


  • Effectiveness - exterior waterproofing is often considered to be more effective as it prevents water from reaching the foundation walls.

  • Cost - another major difference. Exterior waterproofing is generally more expensive than internal waterproofing due to the additional labor and materials.

  • Maintenance - exterior waterproofing requires less maintenance. That’s because internal waterproofing relies on sump pump to get the water outside your basement. As a result interior waterproofing requires sump pump cleaning & service, otherwise your are risking to get basement flood.

  • Disruption - exterior basement waterproofing requires excavation services Kawartha Lakes. As a result it is more disruptive to landscaping and your outdoor space.

We recommend that you contact basement waterproofing experts to help select the best solution in your particular case.

Options & Considerations When it Comes to Basement Waterproofing

Basement Waterpoofing in Kawartha Lakes can Include Some of the Following Services


Exterior basement waterproofing is a method used to prevent water from entering a basement by applying a waterproof barrier to the outside of the basement walls. The process involves excavating the soil around the foundation of the building down to the footing, cleaning the walls, repairing any cracks or defects, and then applying a waterproof membrane or coating to the exterior surface of the walls.

Emergency Basement Flood Repair

Damaged water lines, broken hot water tanks, water overflows, sewage overflows, and many other things can lead to basement floods.

Basement Sewage Cleanup

Weeping tile installation and weeping tile cleaning services are crucial parts of making sure your wet basement problems are solved. A weeping tile drainage system will help collect water around your foundation and will direct it away. This way the amount of water around your basement is reduced which can help reduce the damage it can do to the foundation walls and your basement.

Interior basement waterproofing is a method used to prevent water from entering a basement by managing the water that has already entered the basement. The process involves installing a drainage system and/or applying a waterproof coating to the inside of the basement walls. The drainage system typically involves a sump pump and a perimeter drainage channel around the interior of the basement walls. This is used to collect water that has entered your basement and pump it outside.

Basement underpinning is a method used to increase the depth or stability of an existing basement foundation by excavating the soil beneath the foundation and reinforcing it with additional material or structure. It is often used to get more living space in homes and cottages in Kawartha Lakes.

Basement plumbing rough-ins & basement bathroom rough-ins are some of the most popular services along with new construction waterproofing. They involve our team of Aquamaster waterproofing contractors installing pipes and vents for the plumbing system in new construction projects. This service involves routing pipes through wall cavities, running vent stacks to the roof, laying underground pipes, and installing fixtures and end elements etc.

Basement Leak Detection & Basement Leak Repair

If you are experiencing wet basement problems or see foundation leaks on your walls, this could be a sign that you need a foundation leak repair. The first step is often foundation leak detection. Our teams are trained to deliver quality foundation leak detection & repair services and have all the necessary equipment with them. Let us find the leak in your basement & do the foundation crack repair to address it!

Basement wall and floor cracks are openings or fissures that appear on the walls or floors of a basement. They can vary in size, shape, and severity and can be caused by a variety of factors, including settlement, shifting soil, hydrostatic pressure, and poor construction. Wall cracks can appear vertically, horizontally, or diagonally and can be hairline cracks or larger fissures. They can be found on both the interior and exterior walls of the basement and can allow water to seep in. It is important to deliver foundation crack repair promptly, as the cracks can worsen over time and potentially lead to structural damage or water damage.

A sump pump is a device used to remove water from a building's basement or crawlspace. It is typically installed in a sump pit, which is a hole or basin dug into the floor of the basement or crawlspace. When water accumulates in the sump pit, the sump pump automatically turns on and pumps the water out of the pit and away from the building, typically through a discharge pipe. Sump pumps can be powered by electricity or a backup battery and can be used to prevent flooding and water damage in the basement or crawlspace. Sump pump is often a part of the interior basement waterproofing system. 

Clogged drains in your home or cottage can be a pain. That's why our plumbing & drain cleaning services are available in Kawarthas.

Basement Waterproofing Reviews

What Our Clients Say?


Stephanie G.

Residential Client

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.
