Damproofing vs. Waterproofing Membranes: What is the Real Difference? 

Damproofing is a barrier against water vapor penetration but does NOT have the ability to stop water from entering a crack in a wall. It has no crack bridging ability nor hydro-static (water pressure) resistance, therefore it does not qualify as a waterproofing product. Ask your contractor for an ICC evaluation report on the product used.

Waterproofing is a membrane barrier designed to stop water from entering a cracked basement wall. The two characteristics of a true waterproofing membrane are 1) the ability to bridge a crack 2) ability to resist water from entering the crack.
