House-Flippers, Be Sure To Get Your Basement Waterproofed
The Maryland real estate market is coming back, and with it, the opportunity to make lots of money with properties that need a little bit of work in order to really shine.
When people look at flipping properties, especially for the first time, they tend to focus on the things that stand out when looking at the property from the curb.
After all, that’s what curb appeal is all about, right?
When repainting, putting in new floors or even rearranging the internal configuration of the home, however, it’s easy to overlook how well preventive maintenance can increase the value of a home.
Preventive maintenance, like having a basement waterproofed, has a number of advantages:
- It is cost-effective compared to many of the larger projects you might undertake instead.
- It can typically be done very quickly, even if you are on a tight timeline with your work.
- It can help to support other renovations and projects that you might also be doing.
Basement waterproofing and foundation waterproofing are a good idea if you’ve done anything to remove walls or change the configuration of rooms, too.
All of the walls of a home and the home’s foundation work together to support it, so these changes could introduce structural issues that may make flooding more likely. When you choose to waterproof your foundation, you are strengthening it against future issues.
Having a basement waterproofed is also a good idea if you happen to be renovating a commercial property. No business owner wants to deal with the possibility of having to shut down due to mold or other issues, so they can easily see the value in having this work already done for them.
For Home, Business, Or Investment Properties, It is Vital to Have Your Basement Waterproofed
Maryland is a great place to live and work, and it’s offering people more and more economic opportunities with every passing day. That might even include flipping properties.
No matter whether you are working on a property for investment or you plan to live there long-term, however, basement waterproofing should be part of your strategy.
