Basement Waterproofing Solutions that Work
We love autumn, with the beautiful foliage and crisp, cool air. But, for some reason, in our area, when a storm rolls in during the fall season it packs a punch. Maybe it’s one of those tropical storms that moves up the coast, but October has a tendency to bring storms that hold a lot of rain. If your basement tends to collect some water during these times, we can offer basement waterproofing solutions that solve the problem once and for all.
Have Your Basement Inspected by a Waterproofing Expert
A thorough evaluation by a waterproofing expert can determine the cause of water in your basement or crawlspace, so you’re not just treating the symptom, but eliminating the root problem. Maybe you have poor drainage in your yard and would benefit from french drain installation. Or your foundation has some deterioration and an application of a waterproof membrane would solve that issue.
Ways to Control Moisture from Inside Your Home
Inside the house, there are additional possibilities for controlling moisture. Vapor barriers, sump pumps, and dehumidifiers all work together to control the water, ensuring your basement stays dry.
In most cases, homeowners don’t need all of these items. Every home is different and just like a doctor prescribes certain medications to assist with a medical problem, we look at your specific situation and determine what you really need to solve the water issue in your home. We offer free inspections, and we won’t ever try to sell you something you don’t need.
This fall, when the forecast calls for inches of rain, wouldn’t it be nice to sit back and enjoy a quiet day indoors while listening to the pitter patter of the raindrops? When you take advantage of waterproofing services, you won’t need to worry and continually run downstairs to see how much water the basement has collected. You can read a book, do a puzzle, watch a movie, or catch the game on TV, without the worry of water in the back of your mind.
