Basement WaterproofingThe basement of a building is typically below ground and carries the weight of the rest of the building. It is also indoor where everyone assumes it is safely protected from water sources. Imagine one’s surprise when they found water ponding in the basement. Groundwater and moisture in the air are also water sources that threaten the dryness and stability of your underground premise, especially since it is also directly in contact with the soil that holds the groundwater. When the ground around your building retains groundwater, water permeability becomes a huge problem. The water pressure will build up and eventually push water through cracks and other openings, causing substantial damage to your foundation concrete. Basement waterproofing is the best measures to protect your basement from rain, floods and also leaks. A wet or damp basement can cause serious problems for the property owner. Preventive waterproofing measures are cheaper and more effective compared to the high cost of cleaning up and restoration once water damage has occurred.
