Waterproofing your basement provides several benefits for your home and your family. Basement waterproofing can protect your investment, improve your property value, and safeguard your family’s health.
As the weather gets warmer and summer approaches, this is the perfect time to inspect your foundation and basement for any signs that may indicate a problem or a potential future issue.
Your home’s foundation can become weak when exposed to moisture. Even if your area is not prone to flooding, water seeping through cracks and joints from snow melt or heavy rains can affect the structural integrity of your foundation. While your basement may not have visible signs of seepage, such as puddles after a storm, water that penetrates the foundation can lead to cracks as it expands, especially if it freezes.
Moisture build-up can make your basement damp and musty, creating the ideal environment for the growth of mold and mildew. In addition to the unpleasant musty smell, mold and mildew can significantly impact you and your family’s health. Mold and mildew caused by a damp, musty basement can cause multiple health issues such as allergies, breathing issues, asthma, and more.
Waterproofing your basement will eliminate these issues, protecting your home from flooding, mold, moisture build-up, and more.
Basement waterproofing ensures the structural integrity of your foundation, ensuring the health of your family, protecting your financial investment, increasing the value of your property and the future resale value of your home.
Summer is a perfect time to have your basement waterproofed for several reasons. If you’re unsure where to start or whether your home would benefit from basement waterproofing, there are a few signs that may indicate a water issue.
