Water is one of the most destructive natural elements. Exposure to excess amounts of water could leave your home structurally unstable and unsafe to live in. Basements are particularly susceptible to moisture problems because they are located below the surface of the ground. Hydrostatic pressure, poor gutter drainage, and an improper slope near your home's foundation can all contribute to the accumulation of moisture inside your basement. Waterproofing your basement is the only way to prevent costly moisture damage, and you can use interior waterproofing methods to maximize your home's protection while minimizing cost.
