Is Waterproofing Your Basement From Inside or Outside Better?

Exterior waterproofing involves excavating your home’s foundation to the footing and applying a membrane along the wall. In some cases, additional products may also be installed. Drain tile is then placed along the footing and encased in gravel to aid in water drainage. Typically, the drain tile will empty into a less-utilized area of your yard, however, a sump pump may be necessary at times.
