There are many expenses that accompany home ownership, and when it comes to upgrades, main living areas tend to take first priority, while basement expenses often get pushed aside and end up at the bottom of the to-do list. However, a basement can be a valuable component of your house, especially if it’s properly maintained and free from moisture. Here are three great reasons why you should invest in basement waterproofing:
- Added Value- Usable basements add value to your home. If the basement is unfinished, but safe and dry, it can be a bonus area for storage or projects. And, if you end up selling your home in the future, a well-maintained and waterproof basement is an excellent selling point.
- Prevent Damage- By waterproofing your basement now, you can prevent future water damage and save yourself thousands of dollars in potential repair costs from issues like wet drywall and wet carpet, bowed or cracked walls, leaky windows, and, perhaps the most dreaded, mold.
- Extra Living Space- Once your basement is properly waterproofed, it can easily be finished and converted into extra living space. Add extra bedrooms, a game room, or even a man cave. Not only do you get extra space to enjoy, but once again, the value of your home increases. It’s a win-win!
