Waterproofing versus Dampproofing

There is a distinct difference between dampproofing and waterproofing.

Dampproofing is meant to keep out soil moisture while waterproofing keeps out both moisture and liquid water.

Dampproofing is a coating that is either sprayed on or applied by hand  to the outside of the wall.  

Waterproofing a foundation requires the same care as dampproofing with regards to surface treatment and drain pipe, but is much more exacting in the treatment of the wall itself. If there is any doubt about whether dampproofing will do the job or not, it's best to spend the extra time and money to waterproof, particularly for liveable in space.
