Water is good for the environment but water can be damaging to your home’s foundation. The foundation of your home holds the structural integrity of your home. The soil becomes saturated around your home’s foundation causing it to expand and shift. Cracks and leaks will form when the pressure on the foundation walls increases. These cracks will allow water to seep into the foundation. By keeping your foundation moisture-free with waterproofing ensures your structure to hold for years to come.
What is Waterproofing?
Waterproofing is the process that prevents water from penetrating your home to keep it dry. Waterproofing is done to avoid damage to your home’s foundation. Damage to your foundation could be caused by rain, flooding, plumbing leaks, excess humidity, and burst pipes.
Benefits of Waterproofing Your Home
Prevent Mold and Mildew: Bacteria, mold, and mildew will develop when water penetrates your home’s foundation. These could cause health problems for you and your family. Waterproofing protects the home from moisture developing.
Prevent Cracks in Foundation: Your home’s foundation is the most important part of a home’s structure. Waterproofing will help keep the structural integrity of the home by preventing costly foundation repairs.
Reduce Energy Costs: Cracks in your foundation could cause your home to lose heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. This will make your home more expensive to maintain the temperature. Waterproofing will help insulate your home to be more efficient all year.
