Most homeowners do not think about basement waterproofing when considering home improvement projects to carry out. This is because the focus of most home improvement projects is mainly on other areas of the house like the kitchen, bathrooms and living area. There are many benefits of having a professional contractor in Longwood carry out waterproofing of your basement or crawl space.
Your basement does not have to be a storage space for things that you don’t need. You can use a well waterproofed basement as a living area. A finished basement is an additional selling point when you’re looking to put your house on the market. You can also rent out your basement and make some income from it as waterproofing prevents mold, mildew and water damage. You can even use the basement as a gym or children’s play area.
A waterproofed basement or crawl space helps to improve the energy efficiency of your home. By closing out all the spaces where water and air could get into your basement, you reduce loss of heat during the winter time which could overwork your heater. Likewise in the summer, the warm moist air puts stress on your air conditioner and increases your energy bills. Waterproofing makes your basement retain temperature much better and save you money.
When moisture seeps into a closed space like a basement, it could lead to the growth of toxic mold, bacteria and other organisms that could cause serious health issues in the long term. The worst part is that you may not even be able to see most of these issues until the effects are felt in your body. Basement waterproofing goes a long way in making your home safer for you and your children.
Water entering your basement could damage your foundation and building support which costs a lot to fix. When water damage is also discovered in a home during a real estate transaction, it could reduce the value of the home. By waterproofing your basement or crawl space, it will help you to maintain the structural integrity of your home and save you money on expensive renovations.
