What Can Happen to A Home Without Basement Waterproofing?
When drainage and soil conditions are affected by adverse conditions, such as freezing temperatures in winter, it can make basements predisposed to leaks and flooding. In fact, even rainstorms in spring and summer can affect drainage and cause low-level flooding. Water damage caused by flooding can cause expensive problems including rotting to woodwork in your basement and damage to your home’s structural framing.
Contacting basement waterproofing companies early can prevent serious and costly damage to your home. Prokil offer a range of professional basement services to limit and repair any damage caused in your home.
How Does Basement Waterproofing Add Value?
By law sellers must disclose any current mould issues in the property and whether it has previously encountered issues with flooding. When someone is looking to buy your home, basement waterproofing can be a desirable added feature. Offering the new owner peace of mind that the structure of the property has been well maintained.
Outdated-décor and overgrown gardens may not be attractive to buyers, but a damp cellar or basement can cause genuine concern. When poor basement drainage is left untreated, it can cause structural defects and become susceptible to mould. Without adequate basement waterproofing, avoidable issues including flooding and mould can lower the value of a home significantly.
Cellar tanking also gives you the flexibility to transform basements into an extension of your living space. With Prokil basement conversion services you could consider turning your basement into an extra bedroom or an office, adding further value to your home.
