Water damage in basements is something all homeowners are familiar with, but few people deal with it right away. If moisture leaks in or the basement floods during storms, your foundation can shift or settle, and your basement can develop mold and other health hazards. Heavy rain and snowfall, poor yard drainage, broken sprinkler systems, and high groundwater levels can bring water into your basement. Water enters through leaky windows, cracks in walls or floors, and joints between walls and floors. It can also flow in over the top of your foundation. If water in the basement is an ongoing problem, it is important to address the issue before it causes serious and expensive damage.

What might be an annoying leak right now could turn into a real and expensive problem. No one wants a leaky basement. On the surface, it is annoying, smelly, and an eyesore, but if the leakage persists it can become a much bigger issue. That is why it is important to waterproof your basement as soon as possible. Luckily, Dry Basement® offers a number of solutions to keep your basement dry and water-free.

Waterproofing your basement may seem more daunting and expensive than it actually is. Dry Basement® will evaluate your basement before they decide which type of waterproofing is best. You may not even need the entire basement waterproofed. If there is already a problem with leakage in your basement, the problem can only continue to worsen and become more expensive. By waterproofing now, you are saving time and money in the long run. Even if you think it is not that bad right now, and it might be, it is best to have a professional from Dry Basement® come and assess with a free inspection to see what you’re dealing with. It is always more cost-effective to be proactive with basement waterproofing, than waiting to see if the problem gets worse.

The waterproofing that the builders of the house did may not have been made to last forever. The foundation of your house can shift with the soil, meaning that the waterproofing precautions taken can become faulty. It is always important to see the source of the problem before trying to address it on your own and update your waterproofing measures throughout time to make sure your foundation and basement stay in the best shape they can be.
