Why Drying Out and Waterproofing the Basement of Your Doylestown Home Brings You Huge Benefits
When the housing market took a dive, it seemed that home owners started to do anything they could to improve the value of their homes.
Simply doing a home improvement project for the aesthetic value went out the window…it was all about return on investment.
But, most ignored the one home improvement that will cause your home’s re-sale and home value to sky-rocket:
Admittedly, not the most glamorous of the home improvement projects…but, it will give you the highest return on investment of all.
This is especially true of homes in Doylestown, PA.
Because the structures in which many of the older houses in the Doylestown are are built are not able to withstand the pressure the ground around the home puts on the foundation, leading to leads, flooding, cracks and mold growth.
- Older homes in Doylestown are often built on stone foundations. Others on cinder blocks or brick. All are susceptible to foundation problems caused by the pressure from the outside.
Take the case of a home in Doylestown that we had to repair because their stone foundation cracked and water began to flood the basement when it rained.
We were able to:
- Stop the crack with our steel plate technology
- Put in drainage and pumps so that water could no longer collect in the soil around the home, putting tremendous stress on the foundation walls
- Put in a system to pull water away from the home when it rains or snows so that there is no pressure on the walls and no flooding can occur
