Waterproofing your basement is a smart plan. If you plan on turning the basement into an additional family room or entertainment area, you’ll definitely want to invest in waterproofing. However, waterproofing has benefits even if you only occasionally use the basement, including adding resale value and protecting the air quality in the home. Our crew will be happy to talk through the practicalities of waterproofing your basement, which can be done in a number of different ways depending on your needs. We think you’ll love the price - and the flexibility which you get with a fully waterproofed basement in your home.
Why bother with basement waterproofing?
If you want to use your basement as an additional living space then you’ll definitely want to have it waterproofed to keep users warm and dry. However, even if you don’t want to use the space regularly, it may be worth considering basement waterproofing. Waterproofing will mean that anything stored in the basement is better protected. It will also stop mold and mildew from causing problems. This is important because having mold in the basement will mean that the air quality in the rest of the house suffers. If you live with allergy sufferers or anyone who struggles with breathing, this can be a serious issue - and it’s not great even if you’re in perfect health!
