If you own or manage a commercial building, you are responsible for the care of the building as well as the safety of its occupants. For this reason, you need to be aware of how effective your foundation waterproofing is at keeping the sublevel areas of the building free of water and moisture. A flooded basement or accumulation of moisture over a period of time can mean serious problems for the building, as well as pose health risks if mold develops.
If you are considering commercial foundation waterproofing, follow these tips so that you are better informed before you hire someone for the job:
- Pricing vs. Experience and Professionalism – As the building manager, it’s obvious that costs are a concern. But trying to save money on foundation waterproofing isn’t worth the risk you could be taking with shoddy workmanship. Don’t just look for a low price; look for a business with ample experience and a professional work attitude. Read reviews and testimonials so that you can make a better decision when choosing a commercial foundation waterproofing company.
- Estimate – You should be able to get an estimate of the job costs from any professional business. But it is also important to ask for an estimate of the duration of the job. This will help you be better prepared for the presence of the work crew, and you should also be able to figure out how to handle any inconveniences caused by your sub-level or surrounding areas of the foundation being inaccessible.
- The Method – Take the time to ask about what methods are available for your commercial foundation waterproofing project. Different methods may be more applicable to different buildings, and knowing what choices are available to you will enable you to make an informed decision.
