Is your basement making you sick?
A healthy basement should be a standard - not a luxury!
A very cost effective way to add value to your home while also ensuring that is it healthy and ready to sell is waterproofing your basement. A watertight basement will affect your home value and even turn your basement into a “dream room.”
Basements are typically the most under-utilized part of homes for living space. Why, because they can be cold, dank, smell musty and even be unhealthy with mold. By ensuring that it is water tight – that underutilized extra space can be used for recreation, a playroom, a big screen home movie center, a bar even a Mancave!
A leaky or flooded basement is never a good thing. It shows that the basement and foundation is already ineffective in keeping water out and the whole integrity of the structure may already be compromised. Immediate foundation waterproofing techniques are needed to restore the building into its full form and give it back its proper market value.
Waterproofing and foundation repair also go hand in hand with pest control. Removing the water and sealing cracked foundations is the first line of defense for preventing pests in basements and crawlspaces.
Because of the basement's unique environment, water damage and moisture are not uncommon and can lead to mold and mildew growth. Exposure to mold and mildew can cause upper respiratory illnesses. All materials used in Ames Research Laboratories elastomeric waterproofing coatings are resistant to mold & mildew in addition to being very strong and impervious. They are easy to apply for the DIY set and they Stop Leaks Fast.
Homeowners don’t need to be intimidated by the process of waterproofing their basement themselves. It is a fairly simple process, cost effective considering the alternative (hiring a contractor) and the products are pleasant to work with, not containing VOC’s or strong odors. Also, there is a friendly “coach” available seven days a week (1-888-345-0809) to guide them through the entire process including surface prep, estimating materials, and application.
