Frequently Asked Questions
Can I waterproof my own basement?
You’ll want a professional for any major changes, but there are several ways you can improve your basement’s waterproofing without specialty knowledge. For effective DIY changes, you should look at things outside of your basement.
Make sure the grading of your yard isn’t sloping water toward your foundation, that you don’t have shrubs against your home with long roots that can guide water down, and that your gutters and spouts are working and sending water away from the base of your home.
What is the best sealant for basement walls?
There’s no one-size-fits-all solution for sealing basement walls, as different products handle different situations better or worse. If you’re thinking about DIY, it’s also worth comparing the difficulty of applying different sealants on your own, as top-tier sealants also come with a more complex installation process.
My basement has never flooded — do I still need waterproofing?
Situations change, and you don’t want to find out the water flow situation has changed, to the tune of a completely destroyed basement and everything in it.
A gutter failing unnoticed in a storm, a change to a neighbor’s lawn grading, an unprecedented downpour, a clogged storm drain: These could all lead to a flooded basement where you’ve never had one before.
Will I need extra insulation along with waterproofing? How much insulation does waterproofing provide?
Waterproofing and insulation have largely different goals, so you shouldn’t depend on one to provide the other unless using a product explicitly designed for both.
Some forms of insulation serve as much as moisture barriers as they do air and heat barriers, but not all — and many common forms of basement insulation, like fiberglass batts, are susceptible to water damage.
Similarly, the job of waterproofing is to serve as a moisture barrier — most products aren’t designed with heat or air in mind.
