Have a Flooded, Wet, Damp Basement? Should You Fix It Yourself or Hire a Basement Waterproofing Company?
When you basement is flooding or you have cracks in your foundation can be tempting to try to fix the problem yourself.
After all, waterproofing is expensive, isn’t it?
DIY vs Professional
The problem is that do it yourself solutions are fine for hanging a picture or changing a light bulb, but it is not a smart choice for water proofing.
Waterproofing your basement is not just painting a “waterproofing” paint or membrane on the inside walls and floor.
This will actually cause more problems because the water will still be getting into your basement and will now cause water and moisture to be trapped between the cement and the membrane. This encourages mold growth and will mask foundation problems, temporarily.
And, when it comes to foundation cracks, there is no such thing as a DIY solution. Cracks and structural problem are serious and should be dealt with by a professional.
