4 Basement Waterproofing Tips To Help You Deal With Water Damage And Correcting Problems

The basement of your home is vulnerable to problems with water and damage, which is something that can be a problem if you do not have good waterproofing. When there is water damage to your basement, you will want to do repairs as well as improvements to waterproofing to help protect your home from damage. The following tips will help you with the repairs and waterproofing improvements that need to be done when there is water damage in your basement.

1. Waterproofing the Materials You Use to Finish Your Basement to Make Cleaning Up Easier

There are a lot of different materials that you can use to finish your basement. These materials can include water-resistant materials and other finishes that are not as durable. Therefore, when you are doing repairs and improvements to your basement, you will want to consider waterproofing the materials in areas that are the most vulnerable to damage.

2. Install Drainage Systems Where They Are Needed Inside and Outside of Your Home to Keep the Water Out

Drainage systems are important to help keep the water out of your basement and prevent damage. Sometimes, you have a drainage system installed outside and sometimes on the interior of your basement, but having both is the best solution. Therefore, if your basement lacks one or the other, you will want to consider having the drainage system installed to update your home.

3. Waterproofing Systems for Interior Foundation Wall Finishes to Ensure Water Does Not Get into the Basement

There are also wall finishing systems that can be used to finish the interior of basements and other areas of your home that are vulnerable to damage. When you are repairing the water damage in your basement, consider using these waterproofing wall finish systems for the exterior walls to help prevent future water damage problems.

4. Exterior Foundation Walls and the Improvements That Need to Be Done to Protect Your Basement from Damage

The exterior of the foundation walls of your home may have outdated waterproofing systems that caused the water damage in the first place. Therefore, you will want to consider upgrades to your exterior waterproofing systems to help prevent water damage and keep the water out of your home.

These are some tips to help you with the repairs and improvements to waterproofing that need to be done when there is water damage in your basement.

About Me

Don't Let Your Basement Become Wasted Space

My wife and I recently had a new home built, and while we had few stressful decisions to make, we greatly enjoyed the process and love our new home. Due to budget concerns, we decided to leave our basement unfinished at first. We figured that since we have so much "stuff" that we need to store, like off-season clothing and seasonal decorations, we would just use it for storage. However, we soon regretted not having it finished and felt like we had "wasted space" in our new house that wasn't being put to good use. We turned it into a "mini apartment" with its own entrance that we now rent out to a friend for a little extra income. I love sharing what we learned during the home building process, so I am excited to share our experiences and tips on our new blog! Come back for more construction tips!
