What is Internal Dewatering?  

Internal Dewatering also commonly referred to as an “internal perimeter drainage system,” Or “Interior Waterproofing” is a method of waterproofing the inner foundation walls as an alternative method to waterproofing the exterior walls. Its primary use is to help waterproof leaking foundations. 

Since no excavation is involved, installing an interior drainage system is generally more cost-effective than exterior waterproofing. Not only that, but it is also a proven and highly adequate basement waterproofing approach. The method of waterproofing that we recommend varies in accordance with the situation at hand; however, Internal Dewatering is often chosen because of the less-invasive process. 

What can you expect from an Interior Waterproofing System? 

A perimeter drainage system waterproofs your basement by providing an outlet for the water to escape through. By installing a drain, you can rest assured that any water that pools within the block foundation walls and eventually ends up on the basement floor will be appropriately taken care of. Not only that, but an interior tile system is also beneficial for dealing with leaks through foundation cracks, or even a high-water table underneath the basement floor. With it installed, homeowners can look forward to a perfectly dry basement, and the comfort of knowing that there is a system in place should anything go awry. 

Because this waterproofing method calls for installing a drainage system against one or all of the interior walls of your basement, absolutely no digging outside of the home required. Much like an external weeping tile system, the internal system drains water at the foundation’s footing. Not only does this resolve the inconvenience of living with a damp basement, but it also extends the life of the foundation. When properly installed, an interior drainage system should keep your basement dry for the foreseeable future.  

On top of its many technical benefits, waterproofing simply adds property value to any home. Much like other home improvement projects, should you ever decide to put your house on the market, having your basement waterproofed can make a significant impact on how much your home goes for. Even if you have no plans to sell your Home in the foreseeable future, there is still the massive benefit of convenience.
