Have you just bought a home in Ottawa? Are you looking to ensure that your investment will retain its value, years down the road when you are thinking of selling it? If so, you should look into foundation waterproofing, one of the best preventive maintenance solutions available. It ensures that water will not enter through your foundation and into your home.
There are many potential ways for basement leaks to occur. Seasonal weather changes, including heavy snow or rain, is common for producing basement leaks. A failed weeping tile, foundation cracks, or even leaking mortar joints and construction joints can also lead to some sort of penetration in your foundation and cause severe water damage in your basement.
At that point, your wet basement will result in property damage. The humidity levels in the basement will increase, creating an environment that allows mold to propagate. Given enough time, mold can spread on your walls, floors, and any furniture left in the basement. Basement leaks can also damage your structure, and weaken it.
By investing in foundation waterproofing ahead of time, you are preventing these problems from occurring. You’re also ensuring that when you are ready to sell your home, you may find people who are willing to pay a good price for it. All home buyers find the value in purchasing a home that has been well maintained and require little to no repairs.
