Because basements are built into the ground, they are susceptible to water damage. Water in the basement or crawlspace of a home can cause damage that costs hundreds or even thousands of dollars to repair. Wet basement repair is financially, emotionally and physically exhausting. The only way to avoid the headache of a flooded basement is to either waterproof your basement before a big storm hits or get any leaks fixed before they before they become a big problem.
The solution for a wet basement depends on the source of the water. Common sources of water leakage are leaking pipes, cracks in the foundation, or underground water. Fixing pipes or cracks are usually pretty inexpensive. But if underground water is the source of water in your home, you will need to have a sump pump installed by a professional waterproofing company.
At StayDry® we are experts at basement waterproofing, we have done it for over 50,000 homes in the Michigan area! You may be tempted to waterproof your basement yourself. But there are two main reasons why this is a risky idea.
- Time: If you attempt to waterproof your basement yourself, you will not be as efficient as a professional team. Even if your friends and family offer to help, your lack of experience will stretch your project’s timeline.
- Supplies: Professional waterproofing companies have access to the proper tools required to properly waterproof a basement.
- Temporary Fix: When trying to fix your basement water problems yourself you may be tempted to take shortcuts. Without proper training, your diy waterproofing solution could be great, but it might not be a great long-term solution.
