The advantages of basement waterproofing can’t be denied.
One of the most important things you can do for your home is to make sure you prevent it from the damaging effects of water. Basement waterproofing is essential for any home, even if you have a sump pump already. Ask anyone who has ever experienced basement flooding, and you will find out that the cost and inconvenience of the basement waterproofing process is far superior to the cost and hassle of a flooded basement. There are other advantages of basement waterproofing besides saving yourself a potential headache, including:
- Preventing damage to your foundation- Water can cause damage both quickly and over time. Just like freezing and thawing water can cause potholes and consistent wear from running water can create things like the Grand Canyon, water seeping into cracks in your foundation can freeze and widen cracks, cause degradation of your concrete slab, and wear away the land under your foundation, causing structural issues.
- Better for allergy or asthma sufferers- Even the smallest of leaks or cracks can create mold growth and excessive humidity. When your basement is waterproofed, the levels above are protected from dust, dirt and mold.
- Fewer home insurance hassles- A large portion of home insurance claims are due to flooding. Too many claims can cause your home insurance rates to raise, not to mention the hassle of the paperwork to file a claim.
