Preserving a Basement’s Structural Integrity

Waterproofing a basement is a great way to prevent foundation damage in your home or business while keeping water from damaging the interior of your home and its contents. Some of the great benefits of waterproofing a basement include:

Preventing Water Damage: Water damage is the leading cause of foundation damage in homes and businesses. When water makes its way into cracks in a foundation and into a basement, it will weaken the foundation concrete and compromise structural integrity over time. Waterproofing a basement keeps water from entering your basement, keeps it dry, and protects against foundation water damage.

Reducing Hydrostatic Pressure: Hydrostatic pressure is a fancy term for water that puts pressure on your foundation’s walls, causing them to bow and crack inward. In addition to letting water into your basement, hydrostatic pressure is a leading cause of costly foundation damage that can compromise the strength of a home or business’s structural integrity. Waterproofing a basement and installing proper water drainage and diversions systems can keep your basement dry and reduce the chances of hydrostatic pressure damaging a foundation.

Reducing Soil Erosion: Soil erosion and water damage to foundations and basements go hand in hand. When water enters the soil around a basement, it can wash away soil, exposing a foundation to more water damage. Excess water can be kept away from a foundation by waterproofing a basement and implementing proper drainage methods.

Preventing Harmful Mold Growth With Basement Waterproofing

One of the other problems a leaky basement can cause homes and business owners is mold and mildew growth. Unfortunately, leaky basements are the perfect environment for mold to grow. Mold is more than unsightly; it can damage a basement’s contents and pose a severe health risk. Luckily, waterproofing a basement is the best way to keep mold and mildew from growing and taking over a basement and its contents. With a waterproof basement, you can increase its usability by turning it into a usable living space that can increase the value of your property.

Waterproofing a Basement to Increase Property Value

Turning a basement into a liveable space can be lucrative to homeowners and increase liveable space in a home. Estimates put the value of a finished basement at 50-70 % of the price per square foot of above-ground space. This adds exceptional value to a home and can help homeowners recuperate the initial waterproofing cost when they sell their homes. The first step towards making a basement into an investment and liveable space is to ensure all future work is protected from water damage, mold, and foundation damage that a leaky basement can cause.
