Stopping Basement Leaks Means Protecting Your Home And Family
Basement leaks are a serious issue, especially here in the Maryland area. With an average annual rainfall of almost 41 inches and some years approaching more than 60 inches annually, there is a lot of water that can find its way into your home over the course of just a few months.
And while it can seem like there are DIY product out there that can simplify the process of waterproofing a home, the reality is that spending the money on a professional waterproofing job is an investment you simply can’t afford to skimp on. Stopping basement leaks protects your home, your bank account, and your family’s health. Here’s a look at the three areas of protection a waterproofed basement offers:
• Your Home – When you stop basement leaks, you help protect your home in a big way. Things like rot can lead to structural damage, and when you prevent the water from entering you’ll be preventing rot and other forms of damage from occurring. Your home is your life’s biggest investment, and as such you need to take the time to make sure it’s protected.
• Your Bank Account – The cost of a basement waterproofing service is far less than the potential repair costs that can come when you ignore the problem. From mold removal to framing repair to lost property value, a leaking basement can have a wide range of effects on your home. While it may seem like an expense, it’s an investment that will save you huge amounts of money over the future.
• Your Health – Mold and mildew growth can lead a home to being totally uninhabitable. The spores that these growths create can lower the air quality in your home and may trigger breathing difficulty and other respiratory problems, along with other potential health issues.
