Waterproofing & Why It’s Important for the Home
Preserve the Structure
Without waterproofing, water from heavy rains and flooding can seep through foundations and into your walls. The moisture can go undetected for months until signs of damage are visible, including cracks in walls and the foundation. Waterproofing your home and basement will keep that moisture out, so you can avoid costly repairs.
Protect Your Family’s Health
Your family’s health is of the utmost importance. Waterproofing can keep them safe from serious illnesses caused by mold and mildew. These fungi grow rapidly and when they’re inside your walls, may go unnoticed until someone gets sick.
Waterproofing can result in significant savings. In addition to avoiding expensive foundation repairs and medical bills, you can also save on energy costs. Moisture and any subsequent humidity can force your HVAC system to work harder, which can result in higher utility bills as well as costly repairs to the system from wear and tear. With waterproofing, you can extend the life of your HVAC system and enjoy lower heating and cooling bills.
