3 Reasons to Waterproof Your Basement

If you’re a homeowner, you’re probably thinking about how you can improve the look and feel of your home. One are that most homeowners overlook is their basement. Few people take the time to consider how to best protect their home and their basements in the event of a flood, hurricane or other bout of inclement weather.

Waterproofing your basement is one of the best preventative measures that you can take to provide you and your family with the safety you need in the event of a weather emergency. At Rightway Waterproofing Co., the leading waterproofing company in Chester County, we believe that it is vital to waterproof your basement. Here are three of the best reasons to consider this service today.

  • Waterproofing helps to preserve basement remodeling. If you’ve spent money on a basement remodeling project, don’t let it all go to waste thanks to a flood! Basement waterproofing helps you preserve all the hard work that you’ve put into your home.
  • Waterproofing helps to prevent mold growth. Even if you are able to clean up your basement after flooding, chances are high that you’ll still have to deal with mold. Mold loves having a cool, dark place to thrive, and a damp basement provides the perfect environment. Waterproofing can help to discourage mold growth in your home.
  • Waterproofing increases the value of your home. If you’re considering putting your home up on the market, you may want to think about waterproofing your basement, especially if you live close to an easily flooding lake or creek. No one wants to buy a home that they believe will be ruined by the first bout of bad weather!

“The day after Hurricane Irene, all of my neighbors basements were filled with water, while mine remained dry! It is wonderful, everything remains dry and the battery backup worked beautifully when my power was out for 2 days. Dry AND quiet, thank you, thank you! Thanks! Debbie, Berwyn”

-Debbie, Berwyn

“All I have to say is that Hurricane Irene was no match for the job that Rightway did for my basement and my father-in-law’s. I had my basement done 5 years ago and we are still bone dry and my father-inlaw’s was done last year and another dry basement… Great job! I highly recommend them for waterproofing and mold remediation.”

-Doug Smith, Glenside

“I’d highly recommend these guys for your basement. My basement has been dry since they installed a sump pump and French drain in June. They offer a competitive price, they get the job done quickly and they stand by their work. Please mention my name if you proceed down the road with these guys.”
