Your home is likely your biggest investment. So you want to protect it. If you’re even reading a blog about basement waterproofing costs, you know you have issues with water intrusion in your basement. We’re sorry to hear that. It can be a stressful situation, but we’re here to help.
You’re exploring your options and you have questions about what it’s going to cost you to fix the problem. Today, we’ll go over some of the most frequently asked questions we get when it comes to the cost of basement waterproofing.
How Much Does It Cost to Waterproof a Basement?
Everyone has this question, and the answer is different for each house. We’ll be focusing on interior basement waterproofing because that’s our area of expertise. We can tell you that exterior waterproofing is a more expensive option for an existing home.
Several factors will play into your final cost for waterproofing, including:
- The size of your basement
- The condition of your foundation walls and basement floor
- How many sump pumps you need
- Whether you need window wells and floor drains
If you need foundation repair, that will add to your cost. A full perimeter French drain system with one or more sump pumps and a vapor barrier can be a sizeable investment in your home. It will again depend on the size of your home and how badly your foundation walls have been damaged. You can rest assured that this investment will increase the value of your home, will give you peace of mind, and will be a worthwhile investment in the long run.
The only sure way to know how much basement waterproofing will cost is to get estimates from local waterproofing companies.

Is Basement Waterproofing Worth it?
In a word, yes. We have never met a customer who regrets waterproofing their basement. A full perimeter basement waterproofing solution helps you prevent further water damage and helps you reclaim your territory. What was once a damp and dark basement can now be turned into increased living space.
You also improve the air quality in your home, which means you get rid of that musty smell. If your family has allergies or other respiratory issues, basement waterproofing makes it easier to breathe, with fewer symptoms.
By not addressing the issue, you run the risk of a flooded basement and further damage to your home’s foundation. But it’s very important that you hire a reputable basement waterproofing company to do the job. Because shoddy workmanship that you got at a lower price can come back to bite you.
This could be a larger investment financially right now but could save you trouble and even more expenses over time and will add value to your home.
How Do I Pay for Basement Waterproofing?
Basement waterproofing is like any other big purchase – you can pay cash, write a check, use a credit card, or use financing. You may choose to put a down payment on a credit card and finance the rest. It all depends on your preferences.
Value Dry Waterproofing does have financing options including zero payments and zero interest for 12 months. We understand that finding out you have a water intrusion problem in your basement can be a nasty surprise and one you haven’t saved for.
We want you to be able to protect your home now before the problem gets worse.
