Waterproofing – It’s What We Do!
Why Do Waterproofing?
Keeping your home dry is critical to its longevity. Moisture damage is often silent and undetectable, which causes big problems for even the most aware of homeowners. Not only could you wake up one day to a crack in your ceiling or notice your walls are starting to rot, but in severe cases, water damage can lead to mold growth, serious illness, and even (in extreme circumstances) fire. If you want to protect your home against these risks and keep it functional for years to come, it’s important that you find ways of keeping moisture out of your home’s key areas, and the easiest way to waterproof your home is by using liquid rubber sealant.
You should treat your exterior walls for moisture because when water does get into your home, it can lead to a variety of problems. From unwanted smells and discoloration of your walls to potential health issues and even structural damage in extreme cases, you will want to make sure you’re doing everything possible to keep rainwater from damaging your home.
Crawl Space Waterproofing
When a home is built, the foundation is dug out to make room for the basement. This space is usually filled in with dirt, creating a crawl space between the ground level and first floor. Because of their design, dirt crawl spaces are the most susceptible to moisture and water damage, but although this area is outside of the home, you may not notice a problem until it makes its way inside. If there’s an excessive amount of moisture in your area, you should check your crawl space annually and keep it waterproofed to keep your home safe from water damage.
Foundation Coating & Repair
Many homes are built on concrete slabs or wood frames that act as a storage space for water if they aren’t properly sealed. If you live in an area that gets regular rain, or if there are cracks in your foundation, it can lead to a buildup of moisture underneath your home, and this moisture causes foundation cracks, discoloration and even mold growth. A sealant can create a waterproof barrier around your home’s foundation to protect it from moisture damage, saving you thousands on repair costs in time.
