Basement Waterproofing Cost- Is it Expensive?

Most homeowners often have to deal with a leaky basement. But the problem is that we have a tendency to ignore this grave issue. If basement leaks are not correctly fixed, they may harm your property and necessitate costly repairs down the road. Mold and mildew thrive in humid environments, which may cause allergic reactions in you and your family members. Additionally, it will lower the value of your property. A waterproofing basement will suffer significantly less water damage than a normal basement. So if you want to keep a good and safe environment in your basement, waterproofing is essential for you.

Factors that Determine The Cost of Waterproofing

It is very hard to give an exact estimation of waterproofing because there are some factors you need to consider which will ultimately decide the cost. These factors are-

Basement Waterproofing
  • Causes of leaks: The source of the leaks plays a significant role when it comes to the cost of waterproofing. For example, if your damp wall causes cracks in the foundation and the water leaks from the cracks, then waterproofing will require more money. But if the leak comes from an improperly constructed window well, then the service will be less expensive.
  • Foundation: If the foundation is too deep, it will take a while for experts to waterproof your basement. Experts use different methods from different types of foundations; the cost will depend on what materials are used.
  • Waterproofing method: There are specific waterproofing techniques that are less expensive than others. The advantages and disadvantages of each waterproofing technique should be carefully considered in order to select which one is more effective for your basement.
  • Materials: Naturally, high-grade materials will increase the cost by a large margin. The type of materials required for your basement will determine whether the service will be affordable or expensive for you.

The Cost of Waterproofing

Basement waterproofing typically costs between $3 and $10 per square foot. Usually a waterproofing projects can range from $600 to $20,000 depending on the size of the project. Whether you're undertaking a slight indoor improvement or a significant outdoor waterproofing update will affect the cost. Depending on the area, the cost will vary because different areas have different laws.

The sump pump installation was done as a first step of a larger basement remodel project. The job was done quickly, done right, and the team made sure to explain what they were doing and why at every step, including a run through of how the system worked and what to expect once it was in. I have since hired Northeast Basement Solutions to do the full project and am having the same good experience thus far. Highest recommendation

Mark and Miguel are A+ professionals! We used Northeast Basement Solutions for a foundation issue in our new home. They not only came in with a very reasonable quote, they started on the project quickly and took the time to educate us on several things we asked about. They were very responsive and communicated every step of the way. We will definitely be calling them for future waterproofing work. Thanks Northeast!
