Wet Basement? Fix the Problems before You Repair the Damage

Joseph Coupal - Friday, October 28, 2011

If your basement has suffered from water damage, it is important to get the source of the leaks fixed before you begin repairing the damage to your basement.

It makes little sense to make repairs when your basement is at high risk for experiencing the same problem again. Also, keep in mind that basement waterproofing may be extensive, including the installation of a drainage system. So you shouldn’t spend the money on repairs since they may actually impede the repair process. Steps need to be taken to eliminate the cause of the water damage before you spend money on repairs.

Consider bringing in a waterproofing specialist with the experience to identify and fix basement problem areas. Most of the time, water enters the basement through leaks in the floor and wall joints, these are the areas that should be thoroughly checked.

Once the sources of the basement water have been identified and fixed, then you can begin your basement repairs.  Contact A-1 Foundation Crack Repair to waterproof your basement.
