Once you have drained water away at the perimeter of your basement floor, and made sure that it's pumped out reliably, the next thing to do is waterproofing basement walls. Typically you can get your basement floor dry without doing anything to your basement walls - but in some cases, especially with stone or block walls, a basement wall waterproofing system may be necessary.

Even if the walls aren't visibly leaking water, a basement wall still allows water vapor to pass through. Block walls not only allow lots of water vapor through because of their hollow core, but cold (and damp) outside air easily passes through. And air, water, and water vapor can easily pass through stone walls as well.

Are your basement walls damp, stained, chalky, flaky, and ugly? Are you happy with them? Chances are the answer is no. So what can you have done?

There are a few options including coatings, paneling, and vapor barriers.
