4 Problems Prevented by Basement Waterproofing

Many think of basement waterproofing reactively rather than proactively. The fact is that your basement is the foundation of your home and being proactive about waterproofing can save you time, money, and a lot of stress! Foundation integrity is crucial and proper waterproofing is what keeps it strong. Sturdy foundations below mean sturdy homes above. Let’s take a look at 4 problems that are easily prevented by basement waterproofing!

First Things First

Before diving into problems created by excess moisture in your basement, let’s identify what a healthy basement and foundation look like. Ideally, all water outside around your home is diverted away from the foundation through proper grading, gutters, and downspouts. Any cracks, trenches, or areas where water can pool around your home have been remedied. In your basement, the walls and floors are solid with no cracks, pools of water, signs of mold, mildew, or fungus, and are overall structurally sound. If a sump pump is installed, it is clean and working properly. When you breathe in your basement air, there are no unpleasant odors. If windows are visible, there is no humidity forming on the panes. Your home utility bills are of average cost for a home your size and usage. All of those are important indicators of the health of your foundation and basement with regard to moisture control.
