Top 10 Reasons to Waterproof Your Basement

Even if you have never had a problem with water in the basement, here are 10 reasons to consider waterproofing your basement:

1.       Many items stored in your basement are irreplaceable.

2.       It’s cheaper than replacing your furnace and hot water heater.

3.       Protects the value of your home (Once there is evidence of flooding or water in your basement, the value of your home goes down and may never sell)

4.       Creates more usable living space.

5.       Create more usable closet and storage space.

6.       Protect the health of your family from the adverse effects of mold and mildew spores in the air.

7.       Gets rid of the damp, musty odors.

8.       Protects your belongings and valuables from rust, mold, mildew, and water damage.

9.       Ground water tables in coastal areas and inland waterways are slowly rising due to rising sea levels.

10.   Basement water problems get worse over time and you could eventually face huge bills to repair or replace basement foundations, walls, floors, appliances, and personal items.
