A dry basement is a healthy basement. Basement leakage problems may be very obvious or they may be more subtle. Even if you are not plagued by puddles of water in your basement you may have other less noticeable problems that indicate the need for basement waterproofing. A reliable basement waterproofing contractor can find and repair damage before it becomes a major problem.
Many homes have unseen cracks and pits in the foundation or in wall or floor joints. Problems can arise when extreme temperature changes such as winter freeze and thaw cause expanding and contracting of these flaws in the structure. This can result in small cracks, leaks and pits enlarging and becoming huge problems.
A damp basement can also be a breeding ground for mold and mildew. You may have these ignored or often unrecognized health hazards hiding in the walls and floors of your basement.
If you’re like many people you home is your most valuable asset. A wet or damp basement detracts from that value, but a dry basement adds usable square footage and dollars to the homes worth.
A basement waterproofing contractor can evaluate the conditions in your basement and determine what, if anything, is needed to repair your home and protect your family. They can eliminate the sources of the molds and mildew that threaten the health of your family and save you thousands of dollars in future home repair costs.
