Is Your Basement Ready for The Spring Thaw in Indiana?

When you originally bought your Indiana home, you were totally sold on it when you realized that it had a full basement. You began to imagine things like the ultimate man-cave, or an awesome family game room.

Then you went through the first spring thaw in this home only to realize that none of the above would apply since you now had an indoor pool!  Upon further inspection, you also realize the reason you have an indoor aquatic center is that you have little to no waterproofing on your basement walls and floor!

Now would be a good time to let the kids know that instead of installing a log ride down the basement steps, you are going to finally get professional waterproofing to prevent any future water problems and permanently close the water park.

Waterproofing During Home Construction… Or Lack Thereof!

If your home is 15 years-old, or older, chances are that when it was constructed the contractor who was in charge of building the foundation as well as the basement used little, if any, waterproofing material.

The only thing that accomplishes is maybe saving a few dollars on the final price of the home. Now it is up to you to find the professional waterproofing solutions to put an end to your springtime deluge.

The actual job of waterproofing your basement or crawlspace is exactly what EverDry Waterproofing is all about! This nationwide company has been providing waterproofing service for over 20 years.

Things You Can Do to Prevent Basement Flooding in The Future

Choosing the team of dedicated professionals from EverDry Waterproofing will more than likely solve your flooding issues. That being said, there are some things that you can do both in and around your basement or crawlspace to prevent future flooding issues.

Some of those thing are:

  • Repair any leaks, pipe blockages, or outdoor spigots. Any type of water leak, no matter what the source is, can be a potential basement flood for you. Putting a plan in place to inspect and repair those issues will go a long way in your flooding prevention plan!
  • Consider either installing or repairing your basement’s sump pump. Hopefully you have a sump pump installed in your basement to pump out any unwanted water as it comes in. If not, or if your sump pump is broken, now is an excellent time to address those issues!
  • Rethink your gutter downspouts. Chances are that if you have gutter around your home, you will be preparing them for the upcoming spring rains. This would be a great time to make sure that all your gutter downspouts are channeling rain water far away from your foundation.
  • Landscaping may be a solution as well. When getting your landscape prepared for spring and summer, take a long look at any potential problem areas where you could benefit from draining any run-off water further from your home.

These are some of the major issues that tend to plague most basement flooding situations. When you have your basement or crawlspace waterproofed by EverDry and you have all the above issues under control you are well on your way to having a safe and dry springtime thaw and not the grand opening of yet another water park!
