The need for waterproofing

It’s a well-known fact that almost all basements will leak and require waterproofing at some point in their lifetime, with block foundations being susceptible to that problem within the first 20 years. While there are various causes behind these leaks, it’s important to have the problem professionally assessed to find out exactly what you need to cure the problem. If you’re already experiencing problems caused by dampness, moisture, humidity, or leaks, it’s a very important time to get the situation checked out. Especially if mold is becoming an issue.

Why waterproofing is a big deal

There are lots of reasons that basements begin to leak. For instance, walls could crack due to your home settling or you could experience the biodegrading of the exterior protective coatings that were applied to your home when it was new. It could also fall back to the drainage system filling up with silt and causing problems from there. Whatever the cause of the problem, the result should always be the same.

The truth is, water can be incredibly destructive, causing foundational issues, mold and mildew, and many health problems along the way. Overall, it just makes sense to take care of an issue like this as soon as you see signs of a problem. It may seem like a lot of research, time, effort, and money, but it’s more worth it than you might know. It can add great market value as well as peace of mind, but it can also add extra useable storage or living space that you’ve been needing.

Even if you don’t have a basement, waterproofing can be very necessary. For instance, foundations are the very thing that supports your home and can be just as susceptible to water damage. Be sure to look for signs of problems such as mold, walls that are bowed or curved in some way, rusted piping, and stains on your walls. You’re even more susceptible to water damage if your home is on a slope or if you have recently experienced a drought.
