You need wet basement waterproofing before you finish the basement
- Turning your unfinished basement into functional living space is a project many New Jersey homeowners will consider this year.
- A healthy home needs a dry and healthy basement, not a wet basement.
- The main house is above ground and has plenty of air circulation from the windows and doors being opened and closed each day.
- The basement is subterranean and below ground. Because the basement is underground it has a different environment than the rest of the house.
- Also, because most of the living takes place in the main living areas, the main house is probably cleaned more often.
- Keep your basement well ventilated and have a 7 day battery backup sump pump for power outages.
If you get a wet basement every spring, your first investment must be in controlling the water that invades it.
- An unexpected wet basement can damage walls and floors, destroy carpeting, ruin furniture and lead pretty quickly to mold.
- Dryness is key to a successful basement project because water damage can really wreak havoc in your home.
- French drain waterproofing systems with a sump pump are an important means for achieving a dry basement.
