Why Do You Need To Waterproof The Exterior Of Your Foundation Or Basement?

Waterproofing the exterior of a house that's under construction is relatively simple because the foundation and/or basement walls of the home are already exposed. The construction allows you (or the contractors, rather) to waterproof as much as needed with little disruption to the construction process. It's quite a different story when the house is already complete and the landscaping installed—especially an older house with established landscaping. That process involves excavating the soil around the home and is more time-consuming and disruptive—but that waterproofing needs to be done, and it needs to be exterior, not interior.
