Four Benefits of Basement Waterproofing

March 21, 2023

Water seeping through cracks in your foundation, water leaking in after a heavy rain, and mold and mildew on your basement walls, are all major reasons to call the basement waterproofing experts at Best Buy Waterproofing for an inspection. Just consider these four benefits to having us waterproof your home’s basement:

  1. Avert future basement flooding. Installing a reliable drainage system to divert groundwater away from your home is an important waterproofing step, along with sealing foundation cracking and a sump pump with a battery backup. Remember, that basement waterproofing is not just for older homes. Home builders often focus on the luxury features inside your new home and seldom spend enough time on foundation and drainage.
  2. Improve Air Quality in your home. When excess water and high moisture levels appear in your home, mold and mildew follow. This leads to an unhealthy home environment which can exacerbate allergies and breathing issues.
  3. Lower heating and cooling costs. When your home environment is wet and moist, your HVAC systems works overtime to compensate, leading to higher energy bills. A properly waterproofed basement can reduce your energy consumption and save you money.
  4. Prevention of future structural damage. Water damage can cause foundation cracks and buckling walls and floors. If left untreated, this can affect the structural integrity of your home. A properly installed waterproofing system can prevent future structural damage.
