When you're buying a previously owned house, you always have to think about the things that could go wrong once you have bought it.
One of those things is the inevitable rain storm during those hot summer days.
So what do you do when trees are falling, your basement is leaking and everything feels like it's falling apart?
Waterproofing your home is a great way to avoid a big mess before it happens.
1. PREVENT HEALTH PROBLEMS
Once you have waterproofed your home, you don't have to worry about that leaky basement. When you let water in your house, you are at risk of causing major mold issues which is bad for your health.
2. SAVE MONEY IN THE LONG RUN
If you have a flooded basement and you make an insurance claim to help pay for those crack injections you are at risk of having higher insurance rates later on.
3. INCREASE HOME VALUE
On top of that, in some areas in Canada, having waterproofed your house can actually increase its' value. This can happen in cities that are known for very rainy seasons.
When it comes to waterproofing your house, you're not just preparing for
future storms, but you're also saving money in the long run.
