In an environment which sees regular and often heavy rain, sealing and waterproofing are necessary steps toward providing protecting for the value of a home. Through properly waterproofing their basements and other ground-level or sub-level structures, we help our customers achieve the peace of mind of knowing that their home and possessions are resistant to flooding. Flooding is such a common concern that many homeowners insurance policies skate around its coverage in order to help keep costs down. Our team has experience with waterproofing a variety of materials, including most common varieties of wood and concrete.
Owning a home is a big investment, and the last thing you want to happen is for your investment to suffer from structural damage due to rain or flooding. Water leaking into your basement or foundation can ruin the structure of your home over time. Decks and porches can also be highly susceptible to water damage. Taking steps to protect your property from water damage is essential to maintaining the life of your home.
Water flows into cracks and crevices and can cause unseen damage that can build up over time and ruin foundations. Water damage can also lead to mold and mildew buildup, creating unhealthy and unsafe environments. Mold, mildew, and water can damage furniture, carpets, walls, and possessions. Water is a silent intruder, making its way in without you knowing and damaging property slowly enough to go undetected until severe damage is discovered. As noted above, many insurance carriers will not cover water damage, which means that structural damage could cost thousands of dollars out-of-pocket to repair.
Waterproofing protects your home from the inside out, keeping water where it belongs, outside. The process preserves your home, keeping it clean, dry, and protected. Again, your home is your investment, and preventive waterproofing can help you maintain its original value and condition. If anything, a waterproofed home may increase in value.
In the case of above-ground structures, such as porch and deck supports, waterproofing can maintain their structural integrity regardless of local climate concerns. Such structures will endure for years, or even decades longer than their unfinished alternatives, with relatively little maintenance aside from a regular cleaning.
Your investment deserves the best. Rather than risking structural damage due to leaks, rain, or flooding, waterproof your home for the best possible protection against the elements. The benefits are vast, and over time, you'll be glad you made the decision.
