One of the frequently asked questions about basement waterproofing - is it worth it? There is a number of benefits that basement waterproofing & foundation repairs bring to the table:

Choose the Right Basement Waterproofing Method

Differences Between Interior & Exterior Basement Waterproofing

In a nutshell, exterior waterproofing is more effective, but it's more expensive and disruptive as well. While interior waterproofing is more affordable and less disruptive but may not be as effective in severe cases. The choice of which method to use will depend on various factors such as the severity of the problem, the location of the building, and the budget available.

Interior waterproofing and exterior waterproofing are two approaches to prevent water infiltration in a building. The main differences between the two methods are:


  1. Location - exterior waterproofing is done outside the building, while interior waterproofing is done inside the building.

  2. Method - exterior waterproofing involves excavating the soil around the building's foundation, applying a waterproof membrane to the exterior walls, installing drainage systems, and backfilling the excavated area. Interior waterproofing, on the other hand, involves applying a waterproof coating or sealant to the interior walls and floors, installing a drainage system and sump pump, and sealing cracks and gaps.

  3. Cost - exterior waterproofing is generally more expensive than interior waterproofing, as it involves more extensive excavation work and installation of a drainage system.

  4. Effectiveness - exterior waterproofing is considered more effective than interior waterproofing because it addresses the problem at the source - the exterior walls and foundation. Interior waterproofing is a reactive measure and may not be able to prevent water infiltration in severe cases.

  5. Disruption - exterior waterproofing can be disruptive to landscaping and outdoor spaces, while interior waterproofing can disrupt interior spaces and require the removal of flooring and walls in some cases.

Basement Waterproofing Services Offered in Simcoe County & Muskoka

What is Included in Basement Waterproofing Services Simcoe?


Exterior basement waterproofing is a process that involves excavating the soil around the foundation of a building and applying a waterproof membrane to the exterior walls to prevent water from infiltrating the basement. This process involves excavation around the foundation walls, cleaning the walls and preparing them for the application of waterproofing material. That's how a barrier against water penetration is built. This prevents water from entering the basement through the walls.

French Drain Installation

A French drain is a drainage system designed to redirect water away from a building's foundation or other areas where water accumulation can cause damage. The French drain consists of a trench filled with gravel or rock and a perforated pipe that allows water to flow into it.

Also known as basement floor lowering Simcoe this service is used for two major reasons - to strengthen building foundation and/or to lower basement floor, this creating more headroom and more living space inside your home or cottage.

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.

Internal basement waterproofing (or interior basement waterproofing) is a method of waterproofing that helps manage the water that has already entered your basement. This approach works by installing a drainage system and a sump pump inside the basement. The drainage system collects water that seeps through the foundation walls and the floor. The water is then directed to the sump pump, which gets the water out of  away from the foundation of the home.

Basement epoxy crack injection is a method of foundation crack repairs in concrete basement walls and floors by injecting an epoxy solution into the crack. This is the method we use for foundation repairs in Muskoka, Kawarthas and other cottages around Ontario. The epoxy material fills the crack and hardens, effectively sealing the crack and preventing further water intrusion.

Window wells are installed outside basement windows. They help clear space for the window, and hold debris and soil from getting into the windows. This allows natural light to enter the basement and prevents water damage.

Basement Leak Detection

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.

A sump pump is an important component of interior basement waterproofing. It's a device used to remove water that has accumulated in a sump basin, typically found in the basement or crawl space of a home. The sump basin is usually a pit dug into the ground, which collects water that has either seeped in from the surrounding soil or entered through drains.

Basement Sewage Cleanup

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.
