Types of Waterproofing Systems:

When it comes to protecting your basement from water damage, choosing the right waterproofing system is essential. With various options available, it can be challenging to determine which system is best suited for your home. In this blog post, we'll explore different types of waterproofing systems offered by United Waterproofing and help you make an informed decision.

1. Exterior Waterproofing


Exterior waterproofing involves creating a barrier around the outside of your home's foundation to prevent water from entering your basement.

How It Works:

  • Excavation: The soil around your foundation is excavated to expose the exterior walls.

  • Waterproofing Membrane: A waterproofing membrane is applied to the exterior walls to create a barrier against water infiltration.

  • Drainage System: A French drain or other drainage system is installed to channel water away from your foundation.


  • Provides comprehensive protection against water intrusion.

  • Prevents water from reaching the foundation walls, reducing the risk of structural damage.

2. Interior Waterproofing


Interior waterproofing focuses on managing water that has already entered your basement, preventing it from causing further damage.

How It Works:

  • Interior Drainage System: A perimeter drainage system, such as a French drain or interior waterproofing membrane, is installed along the interior perimeter of your basement.

  • Sump Pump: A sump pump is installed to collect water from the drainage system and pump it out of your basement.


  • Effectively manages water that has entered your basement.

  • Can be installed without excavation, making it a more cost-effective option in certain situations.

3. Crack Injection


Crack injection is a method used to seal cracks in your basement walls or floors, preventing water from seeping through.

How It Works:

  • Epoxy or Polyurethane Injection: A specialized epoxy or polyurethane resin is injected into cracks to fill and seal them, creating a watertight barrier.


  • Provides a cost-effective solution for sealing cracks and preventing water intrusion.

  • Can be used in conjunction with other waterproofing systems for added protection.
