Ready For Storm Season With Preventative Waterproofing
The weather has been more intense lately, and homeowners need to take particular care to protect their residential property. Many homeowners throughout the five states we service have found a little bit of prevention can help them save thousands — especially when the alternative is relying on insurance companies with prolonged and complicated claims processes.
As storms become longer and more severe, it’s especially important to look at preventative waterproofing as a key measure of safety in your home. By getting your basement waterproofed, you can help reduce the likelihood of a flooding issue for several seasons to come.
While every job is different, we can safely estimate that getting a flooded basement repaired — including mold remediation and other issues that might be involved — can cost five to ten times more than prevention.
Waterproofing Isn’t Just For The Spring Rains Anymore
Recently, many customers in our area were dealing with unexpected problems created by the “Polar Vortex.” Speaking technically, a Polar Vortex is a large and prolonged polar cyclone. Two different Polar Vortex systems exist and are persistent features of the Earth’s climate.
Due to unusual conditions, Arctic air influenced by these polar systems made its way south into the U.S. — a sharp contrast to the stream of cool Canadian air that would usually be entering the northern parts of the U.S. in the winter.
Weather experts are still divided over exactly what gave rise to these perfect “Polar Vortex” conditions. However, we’ve learned that it’s a good idea to be prepared for anything when it comes to the weather!
We have always recommended that our customers look at winter as the best time to get their basements waterproofed. This way, the structure is protected during the thaw — which can challenge the foundation of your residence through ground water buildup and other problems.
Now, we would like to encourage our existing and potential customers to get the work done as soon as possible in the winter season — to be certain that unusual weather events won’t lead to flooding out the basement.
AA Action Waterproofing is the name trusted by thousands of customers across five states and the District of Columbia. We have an “A+” rating with the Better Business Bureau and are also associated with the National Association of Waterproofing & Structural Repair Contractors.
