If you want to hold off on waterproofing your foundation in the spring because of winter weather, we have good news for you. Basement waterproofing can be done year-round. With the frozen ground, it is easy to think your basement has no need for waterproofing when in reality, it is open to leaking and water damage. Waiting until next year can be a dangerous game – fix it now and avoid the stress of worrying about your basement through the wet and cold winter months.

Winter Weather

Midwest winters are a prime target for foundation damage. With wet weather and varying temperatures from below zero to above freezing (sometimes on the same day!) your basement is susceptible to water leaks and damaged walls. Even if the winter manages to stay frozen all season, you may be in for a surprise when warmer weather hits.

With the peculiar winters that we have had, all four season within the week, this can really do quite a bit of damage when your foundation is standing up against a constant cycle of freezing and then thawing, the soil shrinking and expanding, and puts a lot of pressure on your foundation walls. This fluctuation potentially can widen existing cracks, cause new ones, and allow water to get into your basement. Additionally, your gutters and downspouts can freeze, which means ice jams and water is not draining properly away from your foundation.

Waterproof Your Foundation Before the Spring Thaw

When the ground begins to thaw in the spring, The soil around your foundation softens. This allows water to seep into your foundation. If you haven’t waterproofed your basement, the water can easily get into your basement, weakening the supports, damaging your personal items, and promote mold and pest infestation.
