Has your basement been flooded lately? Or maybe you noticed cracks around the foundation? 

If this is a problem, you may want to consider basement waterproofing. 

But, what if it's not in your budget? The good news is that we have a guide to basement waterproofing costs, and we can help you make it fit your budget.

Read on to find out just how much basement waterproofing may cost you.



Why Would I Waterproof My Basement?

Waterproofing your foundation and basement can help it from flooding or having water leaks. 

If water gets into your basement, this can cause damage to your walls and mould build-up, which can be dangerous to your health. 

It can be risky to store valuable items in your basement if there may be flooding. By waterproofing, you won't need to worry about this. 

Waterproofing will also limit the amount of moisture. Moisture can seep into your basement and cause a muggy and hotter atmosphere. You can seal out any moisture coming into your basement and ensure that you can enjoy your home. 

So, if you waterproof your basement, what will the cost actually be? Let's break it down.



The cost depends on the size of your basement and if you are choosing interior waterproofing, exterior waterproof, or both. You will have to consider how many square feet will need to be covered too.



The type of sealant you choose could change the price. 

You might be thinking: "I thought there was only one kind of sealant to choose?"

That's actually not true. Whether it be a concrete sealant or silicate-based, it can change the overall cost per square foot. 


Labour Costs

The best way to waterproof your basement is to get it professionally done. This will ensure it is being done properly with professionals who know what they are doing. 

Doing it yourself may cost you more in the long run if you make mistakes. We can discuss with you exactly how much it will cost and how we will do it.

Although hiring a professional may seem more pricey, it could be a life-saver and a money-saver.


Basement Condition

If your basement already has moisture, condensation build-up, and mould, it could be pricier to waterproof. This is because it will cost more to clean up and fix before waterproofing. 

If your basement is in good condition, it might not cost as much to seal. Although it might cost more to fix if it's in bad condition, it may be worth it to ensure that your basement is healthy.
