There are two ways to approach sealing basement walls.  Waterproofing can be done on the positive or negative side of your home.  The positive side is known as the “wet” side, which is on the exterior of the home.  Negative side waterproofing is done from inside of the home.  At HomeStrong we offer both solutions to best help our customers.

There are pros and cons to both positive and negative side wall waterproofing.  Positive side wall treatments will help keep moisture from penetrating through your porous foundation giving it more longevity.  This is common practice in new construction and if done correctly can be very effective.  However, if your how has already been built, this type is waterproofing is more invasive and is generally more expensive.

Since negative side waterproofing is done from inside of the home, it does not keep moisture and humidity from penetrating the wall.  However, it does keep moisture from causing you problems in your home.  This type of waterproofing is less expensive and if the walls are in good condition, it can be very effective.  This type of waterproofing lowers humidity levels and will allow you to finish your basement without worries of mold and bacteria growth.

Sealing Basement Walls


Sealing Basement Walls

Sealing basement walls is a protective measure employed to fortify the structural integrity of a building and prevent water intrusion into the below-ground spaces. This process involves applying a specialized sealant or waterproofing material to the interior or exterior surfaces of basement walls. Interior sealants typically form a barrier against moisture, preventing water from penetrating through the walls and causing issues such as dampness or mold growth. Exterior wall sealing, on the other hand, often involves the application of a waterproof membrane or coating to the outside surface, directing water away from the foundation. The primary goal of sealing basement walls is to create a watertight barrier that safeguards against potential leaks, seepage, and groundwater infiltration, ultimately maintaining a dry and stable environment within the basement. It is a critical component of basement waterproofing, contributing to the longevity and resilience of the structure while ensuring a healthier and more habitable living space.
