Why You Should Waterproof
If your home has no waterproofing solutions installed, it’s likely that you’ll experience water damage at some point. Basements are constructed underground, which leaves them susceptible to water damage from the soils surrounding your foundation walls. Water can saturate those soils and leave it no place else to go but up against your foundation and seep into your basement. As it sits in your basement, it can create a whole new spectrum of problems from mold growth to structural damage. Protect your family’s health and your home’s structure by waterproofing your basement.

The Causes of Water Damage
Cracks in Your Foundation
If you have any cracks in your foundation walls, no matter how small, water can find its way through. Any moisture in the soils outside your foundation walls can seep through the cracks and cause damage.
As the soils become saturated with water, they expand and can put massive amounts of pressure on your foundation walls. This is known as hydrostatic pressure and is a very common occurrence that causes basement water damage.
Poorly Managed Rainwater
Rainwater can wreak havoc on your foundation and your basement if it’s not properly managed. It’s important to have a quality gutter system and downspouts to channel the rainwater far away from your home where it can’t saturate the ground around your foundation.
