Basement Waterproofing: 3 Reasons to Get it Before There’s a Problem , Pond Creek, Kentucky

Kentucky and Ohio’s heavy rainfall can damage your property’s foundation, which is why the team at The Dwyer Company believes you should get basement waterproofing before there’s a problem. Since 1973, the company has provided waterproofing services for residential and commercial spaces throughout Lexington and Louisville, KY, as well as West Chester, OH.

Below, The Dwyer Company staff shares three reasons you should get basement waterproofing before you see signs of damage:

  • Adds More Usable Space: Your basement takes up an entire floor of your property, which probably goes unused if you think the next rainstorm will flood the area and cause mold growth. If you waterproof your basement before there’s a problem, you’ll prevent harmful pathogens from invading the space. Because the room will remain dry and mold-free, you can transform it into a den, office, or extra bedroom.  
  • basement waterproofingCuts Down On Energy Costs: Older properties tend to have drafty basements. Waterproofing the area will seal small cracks and prevent cold air from coming in during fall and winter. You won’t have to crank the furnace as often during chillier months, meaning you can cut down on energy costs. Waterproofing will also keep hot air out, so you won’t have to use the AC as often.
  • Saves Money In The Long-Run: If you’ve already waterproofed your basement, you can rest easy during the next rainstorm. You won’t have to spend money on foundation repair, mold removal, and other flood damage repair services.

If you need fast, reliable, affordable basement waterproofing, The Dwyer Company team is standing by to help. They’ll give your basement a thorough examination and let you know if waterproofing is the best way to prevent damage or if it’s crucial for your space. The company also provides concrete lifting and slabjacking service.
