Which Season Is Best For Getting Your Preventative Maintenance Done?
Here at AA Action Waterproofing, our team always recommends you get preventative waterproofing and other maintenance done before any flood event occurs. It’s faster and less expensive than the alternative — and can save you thousands over the lifetime of your home.
However, you might be wondering whether there’s a specific time of year when it’s best to get in touch with us. True, you can benefit from waterproofing services practically any time throughout the calendar year, but is there one time when it might be best?
We operate throughout Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia, so we know a thing or two about the local weather. Don’t hesitate to contact us at any time.
However, there is a specific season when most of our repeat customers prefer to get maintenance done: Winter. Why is it best to get all your maintenance squared away then? There are several reasons.
1) Winter is When People Are Most Likely To Use The Basement
Fierce weather in winter means you are more likely to spend time down there than you would during spring and summer. In many cases, it’s easier to heat a basement than to cool it, so people find themselves gravitating toward those projects they leave down in the basement.
2) Winter Repairs Prepare You For The Thaw
The first major weather event after the winter isn’t the storm season — it’s the thaw. When the thaw comes, many people find they are dealing with major water damage in their foundation and around the basement. The best thing is to have professionals “head off” issues by evaluating the situation in winter.
3) Winter Repairs Strengthen You For Storm Season
Lately, some of the most ferocious weather of the year has taken place during winter — look at the Polar Vortex, which caused basement woes for hundreds of customers all around our service area. Getting repairs done in winter is the best way to ensure your basement will be protected from all the situations that can lead to flooding.
At AA Action Waterproofing, our team is proactive when it comes to winter repairs. We can find and fix leaks, mold, and “problems waiting to happen” so you save money in the long run.
