Our Basement Waterproofing Services At A Glance

When it comes to water damage, the statistics paint a scary story.

If you want to avoid adding to those statistics yourself and paying through the nose at the same time, it’s crucial to properly waterproof your basement (even if it’s unfinished!). Without professional care and preventative measures, you’ll likely find yourself consistently paying hefty repairs and struggling to find solutions year after year. On the bright side though, you have another option you can explore here:

Why Do I Need to Waterproof My Basement?

Perhaps you don’t think you really need to waterproof your basement. After all, if you don’t have any plans to renovate your basement, you might reasonably think you could afford to skip waterproofing it. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. Failing to waterproof your basement can cause a myriad of problems for you and your family. Exposure to black mold as a result of moisture accumulation over a long period of time, for instance, can cause respiratory issues and even trigger asthma attacks. What’s more, consistent water damage to your basement will significantly lower the value of your house, and can also increase your utilities bills. The truth is, all homeowners need to waterproof their basement to protect themselves and their investments.

Water Damage Warning Signs

It’s understandable not to think about the potential for water damage in your home 24/7 365. Still, water damage can occur at any time, and even if you don’t think your home is at risk, you could find yourself in dire straits sooner than you realize. Indeed, some signs of consistent water damage are quite subtle. Make sure to call a professional if you notice any of these signs around your home:

• Cracks in the wall or floor
• Stains on the walls or floor
• Sound of running water
• Curved spaces in the walls
• Rust
• Dry Rot
• Mold (black, white, green, yellow)
• Musty Smell

(Note, the smell of water accumulation is both pungent –– and a horrible sign.)
