Water is everywhere. It flows from your faucet when you are preparing yourself a cup of tea in the morning. It falls from the sky when it rains. It even makes up a large part of who you are.
That said, water sometimes ends up in places where it does more harm than good––most notably, your basement. Water seeps through the cracks in your foundation while poor heating and cooling build up moisture. Before you know it, there will be a whole lot of mold on top of some serious condensation.
The basement is easy to overlook in favor of other areas of the home, like the bathroom, kitchen, and living room. Unfortunately, if you overlook water damage for too long, the issue will only become more severe, which will result in more expensive issues.
Fortunately, we are trained to handle these pesky issues with watertight basement waterproofing. Here is what we think you should know:
Benefits of Basement Waterproofing
Basements in Pinckney see plenty of basement mold issues, but by waterproofing your basement, you can prevent such issues right away.
When you waterproof your basement, you are avoiding so much more than just structural problems invisible to the naked eye. You will also…
- Create New Options for Your Home – If you are looking to take on a huge remodeling project in the basement, don’t jump right to buying new furniture or putting in carpeting. Get waterproofing out of the way first. Not only will you save yourself a lot of hassle, you can be sure that your final product won’t be at risk of facing the aftermath of water damage.
- Build a Healthier Environment – Mold can reduce the quality of life of your home’s inhabitants. This infamous invader usually first takes hold in damp, cold basements–and it can have nasty effects on your health, causing issues such as stuffy nose, itchy eyes, and even wheezing and shortness of breath.
- Preserve and Improve Your Property Value – With a waterproofed basement, you can increase the value of your home. No new homeowner wants to worry about an expensive process like waterproofing. This gives you leverage to charge better prices for your home if you ever choose to sell. (And even if you don’t, keep in mind that water damage increases your insurance bills! If you don’t keep on top of potential water damage issues, you will face expensive claims and lighter pockets.)
