Your basement must be waterproofed in order to prevent unwanted water damage. You have the option of attempting to waterproof the basement yourself, or you could call in a professional to do the work for you. While you may be interested in doing the work on your own, many problems could arise. For quality work that will save you money, time and your own safety, it’s best to call in a professional.
Save Time And Money
Waterproofing a basement is not an easy task, and it will take a considerable amount of time to complete, especially when done by someone with little experience. The job includes evacuation, repairs, and new installations that can take weeks when working on your own. If you catch an unlucky break and have a few days of heavy rain, you will be set even further back. On the other hand, professionals can finish the job in about one to three days.
While cost is a big factor in why people choose to take on projects themselves, waterproofing your basement on your own will likely cost you more in the long run. Aside from spending money on materials and spending a significant amount of time on the project, it is likely that your basement will face problems in the future. A DIY project on something as essential as waterproofing can result in less than top-notch quality results, which then results in costly repairs.
In addition to saving time and money, a professional should be called in for safety reasons. Since waterproofing a basement is such a labor-intensive task, many safety concerns could hurt you and your home. Exterior waterproofing involves a large trench to be dug around the perimeter of your home’s foundation and is often at risk for collapsing during digging. Also, digging will require a permit, which can be easily obtained by a professional.
Aqua Bright’s Process
At Aqua-Bright, we work with your drainage system as we would our own. We start from the outside, to ensure that water never even gets close enough to your home to damage your basement. It is important that we personally evaluate your home, and design a plan that may include things like French drains, connecting downspouts to underground drainage, and re-grading your lawn. At the end, we will add another layer of protection and make sure that your basement is properly waterproofed. We work quickly, we work safely, and when we leave your home, it’ll look like we were never there.
