Whenever a home improvement project arises, the first question is: How much will it cost? The second is: Do I have the time?
Waterproofing your basement can be an expensive endeavor. The cost will vary based upon your choice of solutions and the size of the space needing to be worked on. Like most other things in life, you get what you pay for. Attempting to waterproof your home yourself can cause damage, void warranties and ultimately result in a higher cost to fix everything properly later.
By cutting corners, your contractor may save money and pass that “savings” onto you. Next thing you know, you have water in your basement again and that “warranty” you were promised means nothing because the company you hired is no longer in business.
We see it all the time. Make sure that you assess your financial options. Most companies offer financing, and your bank may as well. Waterproofing your basement is not only essential to your home’s well being but your personal and financial health as well.
Between mold and mildew causing health issues or destroying valuable keepsakes and the domino effect water can have on the structure of your home- you can lose up to 22% of your property value by ignoring the problem!
The investment also pays you back! Basement waterproofing makes a home more appealing to the housing market. Take ownership in your financial future by asking questions and taking care of your property. Your home is important! Treat it that way.
