Importance of Basement Waterproofing
Everyone loves springtime. But with the spring comes the rain, and with the rain your home can be susceptible to severe damage if it is not properly protected. As water tends to flood basements more than any other part of the home, it is important to get your basement waterproofed to avoid the serious and expensive damage that can be caused by heavy rains.
Water can cause serious foundation problems. When your foundation is damaged, the home is made vulnerable to severe structural damage that can make it an unsafe environment to live in. These problems are incredibly expensive to repair so it is best to avoid them by having a professional waterproof your basement. Also, should your basement be exposed to large amounts of water, the walls and flooring can become moldy which is a serious health hazard.
Understanding that cost is usually a factor when deciding to take on any type of home protection procedure, many people will try the “do it yourself” way in order to save a bit of money. Basement waterproofing requires foundation excavation of the exterior of your home and is best left to professionals. However, it is not necessary to spend a massive amount of money to protect your home.
In addition to the exterior work needed in order to efficiently waterproof your basement, the interior can benefit from waterproof paints and sealants, as well as mold-resistant compounds. Also, should your basement become flooded, it is essential that the lower ground level of your home is equipped with a reliable drain system in order to take water away from your property.
Don’t wait until your first flood to take care of waterproofing your basement. Avoid any potential water damage and take action before the wet season comes around – and in New York that can be all year around!
