What Happens When You Waterproof Your Basement?
Maryland homes have to be protected against the weather, and while most people think of keeping their home warm during the cold winters here, there’s another thing that you’ll need to think about as well – waterproofing. Taking the time to waterproof your basement will help keep it dry and free from numerous problems. Here at AA Action Waterproofing, we think it’s worth understanding just what happens when you complete this basic home improvement step.
- First and most importantly, you’ll save money. Basement waterproofing helps prevent a number of more serious issues including things like rot, mold growth, and poor air quality. Instead of paying high costs for rot repair or mold remediation, you prevent them from occurring at all for a smaller total investment cost.
- You also increase property value. Homes in Maryland need to be in top shape in order to be worth as much as they can be, and that means waterproofing the basement is a must for anyone hoping to refinance, secure a home loan, or resell their home on the market.
- You keep your family safe, too. Mold growth and poor air quality can lead to a variety of different health issues, including several that can be very dangerous. By waterproofing the basement you prevent those issues and keep your air quality good and your family safe.
- All of this brings something that’s hard to put a price on – peace of mind. Knowing that your home and your family are both protected means you can rest a little easier and relax.
Of course, that’s what happens after you waterproof the basement. As far as what happens during the process, you can expect a few basic steps to take place. These include:
- Our waterproofing experts will look at your home and determine what steps need to be taken.
- We’ll talk to you about the process including what steps we recommend, how much they will cost, and more.

There’s not much for homeowners to worry about. As long as you take the initiative to waterproof, you’ll be taking the one step that rests on your shoulders. It’s a home improvement option that you simply can’t ignore, and as spring continues on it’s something you really can’t afford to ignore.
