What is the best basement waterproofing system?

Thumbtack Editors
Answered

The best way to prevent moisture from seeping into your basement is to combine both interior and exterior waterproofing techniques. This method begins at construction by installing the water diversion infrastructure needed to move water away from your foundation and keep it out of the foundation materials in the first place. Then, a membrane should be installed inside to prevent any moisture that has made it past these defenses from making it all the way into your basement. 

However, always consult with basement waterproofing professionals near you to determine which method is right for your home — and your budget.
