Protect your home and the valuables in it from water damage.
When you think about ways to keep your home and your valuables safe, a well-waterproofed basement may be just as good as a home security system. People lose important family heirlooms and other things that mean a lot to them every year because of dampness, mold, or flooding in a basement that isn't waterproofed. In addition, not having residential waterproofing can put your home's value at risk, as well as the safety of your family. Below are just a few of the many benefits of professionally waterproofing your home:
Most people who buy a new home think of it as an investment that will grow in value over time. In the long run, a damp and moldy basement can hurt the worth of your home, ruin things in your storage spaces, weaken your foundation, and even make your home uninhabitable. Properly waterproofing your home is a way to protect your money and keep your home's value safe for years to come.
Many people don't think about how useful their basement or crawlspace could be, so they leave about one-third of their home's total space damp and unusable. These areas can be effectively waterproofed, giving you a whole new floor of living space in your home. You can turn an area that was used for laundry or junk storage into a space for relaxing or even an in-laws suite.
Bacteria and mold can grow in your home in just a few hours if your home is damp and wet. By not taking care of these problems, your family is at risk for a number of health issues, including respiratory problems and even more serious illnesses. Even a small amount of basement seepage can be dangerous to your family if it goes on for a long time. That's why it's important to deal with these issues now so that your family can stay healthy and happy in your home.
People spend a lot of money heating and cooling basements that aren't properly sealed or insulated. When you fix holes and cracks in your home's building envelope, you can cut down on your heating costs in the winter by keeping more warm air inside. This will save money on your heating bill. Another benefit is that during the summer, you can cut down on how much humid air stays around in damp basements and crawlspaces. This will help your air conditioner work less during the hot months. If you decide to sell your home, your home's value will rise because you've made a lot of changes to make it more energy efficient, which is always a good thing for people who want to buy a house.
