Leaky Basement Vs Waterproofed Basement Comparing The Costs
Basement waterproofing is a great investment to make in any home. While it may seem like a big expense at first, you’ll see just how affordable and how smart this investment is to make in the long run. When a basement leaks or floods, the costs can get as high as $20,000 in property damage and clean-up, while basement waterproofing is only a fraction of this on average. Sure, your basement may never leak or flood during your course of living in your home, but the risk is always there, and you’re not like to know or be prepared before it happens.
On average, the cost of basement waterproofing in the Baltimore, Maryland area is around $907 on the low end, and a little over $1,100 on the high end. The cost of repairs after a basement leak involving clean water is in the $1,500 range, so you’re already saving money even if your leak is one that falls under the “best case scenario”. The cost of waterproofing will depend on the size of your basement, and while these estimates are based on a 120 square foot average, this average broken down by square foot ranges between $7.50 and $9.50. Per square foot for basement clean-up? With a small clean water leak, you may be looking at around $12.50 per square foot.
Because we always take a custom approach to your basement waterproofing, these are average estimates based on average methods and average conditions. When you have your basement waterproofed, depending on your property and its needs, your investment may be higher or lower.
The thing with basement leaks and flooding is that you’ll never know if your basement is susceptible until it’s too late. By waterproofing before a basement leak or flood, you can save yourself the headache and the expense of cleaning up after the water, and you can save yourself a lot of stress and time as well. While your basement is being waterproofed, you simply need to relax and allow the professionals to do their thing; you won’t be wasting time going through all of your belongings and spending days drying things out.
