The majority of homeowners call us when they see standing water in their basement. Sometimes, they reach out when they notice moisture on their basement walls. This usually happens right after a heavy rain. However, it is the water they don’t see before it rains and before a basement gets wet, that can save them the expense of a major waterproofing project.
We always counsel homeowners to look for cracks in their foundation. When they see a crack or series of cracks, it usually means trouble. Many times, a home experiences structural issues during the winter months when water freezes and unfreezes. When foundation cracks appear, water seepage issues are usually right around the corner.
What should you do if you notice cracks in your foundation? Make an appointment with one of our waterproofing specialists for a comprehensive inspection of your home’s foundation. It may be something minor or it may be the indicator of a larger problem. Any way you look at it, knowing now is better than paying later. As Ben Franklin said: “You may delay, but time will not.”
