Buildings can suffer from water leakage in almost any part of the structure. However, when it comes to basements, damp conditions, mold, mildew, leaks, or any water seeping underneath or through any part of the foundation, can also quickly become hazardous. Basement waterproofing is the process of correcting and preventing structural damage.
Once water is present, foundations become unstable. Mold can develop and then spread to other parts of the building, and insects or rodent infestations can occur. Basement waterproofing immediately prevents damp conditions, permanently insulates it from moisture, and minimizes the risk from leaks.
Whether the goal is instant protection of a basement as a preventative measure; or there is some possible real damage about to occur; or it has already occurred… basement waterproofing will help quickly remedy the potentially-terrible situation. With various options available, we’ll determine the best course going forward, depending on the severity of the damage.
