There are many projects you can undertake to try and boost the value of your home. Some upgrades, even when less visible, can add surprising value.

Doing basement repairs to help Michigan homes sell faster

Before selling their home, owners usually focus on a bathroom or a kitchen remodel that can add a fair return on your investment. But many homeowners neglect the idea of waterproofing your basement to add value to your home. Not only will waterproofing increase the real estate value of your home, but it will also protect your interior from potential water damage while you still live in the home.

As your most trusted basement waterproofing provider in Michigan, StayDry can help protect your home and improve its real estate value through our expert basement repair and waterproofing services.

Waterproofing Methods

If you plan on waterproofing your basement to add value to the home, you can expect up to a 150% return on your investment. Depending on the waterproofing method you have installed, the project could cost you a fair amount of money or only a couple of thousand. Either way, waterproofing your basement will pay off in the long run. If you want to make a large investment and plan on reaping the benefits of the waterproofing system yourself before you sell, the exterior basement waterproofing service we offer here at StayDry is your best bet. While this invasive method requires exposing the foundation of your home and can cost tens of thousands of dollars, it is sure to keep water from entering your basement.

Smaller waterproofing projects like French drain systems and sump pumps can add value to your home as well. While it doesn’t cost nearly as much as the exterior basement waterproofing method, the French drain system can expel any water leakage from the basement and away from the home. You can even hook your French drain system up to a state-of-the-art sump pump to increase efficiency.

In addition to these waterproofing methods, it can be advantageous to have any cracks in your foundation filled with our polyurethane crack injection method. In fact, is is not uncommon for homebuyers to request repairs before they finalize the purchase. Unlike many of our competitors, we use a high-pressure injection method to ensure the crack is completely sealed.If your foundation has suffered more extensive damage, we may need to stabilize or reinforce the walls of your basement. This will prevent any chance of collapse and further damage to your home.
