Waterproofing An Older Home
If you have an older home, you may be more susceptible to basement leaks, and this is due to a variety of reasons. As your home ages, time and nature will take its toll on your structure, leading it to become more at risk for cracks or the forming of spaces, and these are prime areas in which moisture will begin to seep through. However, the good news is that older homes can be waterproofed as efficiently as newer homes, and you don’t need to worry about having a leaky basement just because your home may have seen its fair share of time.
At AA Action Waterproofing, we take several steps to waterproof all different types of homes, and we make sure to look at each case as an individual one. Because no two homes are exactly the same, and no two leaks are exactly the same, we take a custom approach to making sure your leak is taken care of, thereby allowing you to know that your problem has been solved.
We may use one of several methods to waterproof your older home, and these could consist of installing a sump pump, fixing cracks in the foundation, filling in spaces between the flooring and your walls, or repairing your retaining walls. In some instances, when more than one leak source is found, we may even use a combination of methods to ensure your leaks won’t return.
While many may think that waterproofing is something being done in newer homes, older homes can benefit from waterproofing as well, and any home of any age can be made safe from moisture if the right steps are taken. At AA Action Waterproofing, we feel that it’s better to avoid expensive mold remediation by stopping leaks before they start, and we can do this through our waterproofing methods no matter the age of your home.
