5 Reasons to Waterproof Your Basement - Image 1



1. Control Mold

Moisture control is the key to mold control. Your dark, warm, moist basement is the perfect place for mold to grow. Keeping your basement dry is critical to deterring mold growth. One-third of the air you breathe in every day is inside your home. Mold spores become airborne creating health issues for you and your family.


2. Avoid floods and leaks

It’s better to be prepared! Although you may have never experienced a flood in your home, it could still happen. Floods and leaks cause significant damage to your home and valuables. Waterproofing your basement is the only way to protect your home.


3. Protect the foundation

All basements sit in water! Your concrete foundation is a porous surface. The foundation expands and contracts when it's wet. Then it will crack causing major damage. Fixing leaks and cracks will protect the structural integrity of your home.


4. Save on Energy

People often complain that their basement is cold, wet and unusable. Sealing and waterproofing your basement will drastically reduce your energy bill. Heating and cooling your home will be less expensive all year round.
