Interior basement waterproofing is the most cost-effective waterproofing solution. It involves the use of a perforated drain pipe, which is installed at the perimeter of the footing. Our experts have to remove and replace the concrete at the slab edge during an interior waterproofing project. A drainage pipe is then placed beneath the slab to drain water. The drainage pipe connects to a sump pump, just like in exterior basement waterproofing. Dimpled plastic sheeting is a crucial component of this waterproofing approach. The dimpled sheeting allows the free drainage of the wall into a drainpipe. Compared to the alternative, highly specialized drainage channel systems, a dimpled plastic sheet is more cost-effective.
