Basement Waterproofing

Owning a home is the ultimate goal of many people, but it also can be the source of a lot of stress in your life. Sometimes, something unexpected and beyond your control happens that requires your home to be fixed by a professional. One of these things can be water leaking into the basement of your home. Unfortunately, water damage is all too common in the Greater Knoxville area for one reason or another. If you notice you have wet cement walls, puddles on your basement floor, or cracks in the foundation of your home, then it’s time to contact an experienced basement waterproofing specialist from DryTech Waterproofing. With more than 15 years of experience, you will be in good hands when dealing with water intrusion issues in your basement.

When to Waterproof a Basement

There really is no good time to have water enter your home, but the least unfortunate time would be before you’ve finished the basement. If you are unlucky enough to have water enter the basement after it’s been finished, the remediation and waterproofing process will cost more and take a longer time. The carpet, drywall, and furniture would all need to be removed. Then, the basement would need to be sprayed for mold. Finally, after all that, a waterproofing system would be able to be installed by a basement waterproofing specialist.

If you are buying or building a brand new home, the absolute best time to have your basement waterproofed is before it is finished. You could save yourself time and money by taking preventative measures and doing it before there is even an issue with water seeping into your basement. If you are purchasing an older home with an unfinished basement, the best time to have it waterproofed is before you move in. Have one of our inspectors check the foundation for cracks and the presence of water and then install basement waterproofing before you fill your home with your prized possessions.

Reasons to Have Your Basement Waterproofed

Below, you will find the top five reasons to have your basement waterproofed by a basement waterproofing specialist from DryTech Waterproofing:
