Moisture penetration accelerates the deterioration of mortar joints and other surface materials. This means that if you do not protect the outer parts of your home, you may soon have problems on the inside of your home. Sometimes the water comes in and fills up below the foundation of your house, so by the time you see it, you’re too late.
An article from buildingmoxie.com, a site geared towards DIY enthusiasts, shows a few reasons why the benefits of waterproofing outweigh the short-term cost.
There are waterproofing systems, like sump pumps and French Drains, but I’m willing to bet that there are some areas of your home or building that you haven’t considered waterproofing. Did you know there is a health risk for not waterproofing?
For instance, the formation of mold and mildew can lead to health issues, affecting the respiratory system and triggering allergy and asthma symptoms. Water that is present in your home and is continually left untreated can lead to more serious issues over time.
Modern invisible sealers prevent water from penetrating porous materials such as: brick, block, concrete, and wood. This process prevents spalling and other water related damage. Don’t let these little things wait! Ask us about our water proofing services.
