3 Areas to Enlist Waterproofing Services, Jefferson, Missouri

As a homeowner, a significant concern is water damage to your property and possessions. Waterproofing strategies are the best way to prevent this, but what exactly do you need to do to ensure you’re protected? Below is a guide to get started. 

How to Approach the Waterproofing Process 

1. Basement 

WaterproofingEvery basement has moisture in it, but if excessive amounts are seeping in through the foundation, this is a serious issue. Basement waterproofing typically involves dehumidifying and thoroughly cleaning the area before applying special waterproofing paints to the interior and exterior. 

2. Roof

Your roof keeps rain and stormwater from penetrating the home. These structures are particularly susceptible to leaks around chimneys and vents and where they connect to gutters. Waterproofing these areas is done by adding flashing, which directs water away from the home. Have your roof regularly inspected for loose or missing shingles, which can lead to water intrusion as well.

3. Gutters

Make sure your gutters are working properly in that they are directing water off of your roof and into the yard. If they are broken or clogged, water will end up being dumped on the exterior walls of your home. This moisture may seep into walls or the foundation, resulting in damage. Clean your gutters regularly and replace broken sections to avoid this issue and expensive repair jobs.
