The smallest sign of water in a basement is bad news, and in spite of what some people say on the topic, seepage repair is often best left to experts.
So what can a homeowner do to prevent seepage? Or better yet, what steps can they take to stop seepage from ever happening in the first place?
Here are 3 ways any homeowner can help prevent water seepage in their home.
1. First, inspect your home inside and out.
What you find might surprise you. The average home isn’t protected from water seepage. Negatives like bad ground slope, poor gutters, and hydrostatic pressure can all have an impact on how (and where) water gets into your basement. Explore any opportunity that you can to divert water away from your home.
2. Invest in better indoor seepage protection.
If the seepage is entering your home through a crack, seal it yourself or consider having an expert seal your wet basement walls. There is also a good chance that the water entry is due to bad drain tiles, which is easily sorted out by a basement seepage expert.
3. Cut through all the bad water by calling an expert to begin with.
If you have just moved into a home, are investing in basement repairs, are considering transforming your basement into a living space, or own a rental with seepage problems, your ticket for relief is just a phone call away.
