Basement waterproofing is an important part of home maintenance that helps to protect the structure of the building and prevent costly damage caused by water infiltration. Without proper waterproofing, basements can become damp, humid and subject to mold growth as well as structural damage.
The process of waterproofing a basement typically begins with identifying potential sources of water entry such as cracks in the foundation or improperly installed gutters. Any identified sources of water should be sealed off using appropriate material such as masonry sealants or caulking.
Once this is done, waterproofing membranes can be applied over the entire area to provide additional protection from water infiltration. Finally, drain systems may need to be installed in order to ensure that any water that does enter is quickly removed from the basement before it can cause damage.
Regular inspections should also be performed to check the condition of the waterproofing material and make sure that any issues are fixed promptly.
