Benefits of Beating the Heat in Your Basement

Summer has been brutal in the Philly area this year. With the peak temperature hitting 90 degrees or above for weeks on end, everyone has been looking for ways to beat the heat. One of the best ways to beat the heat is to spend time below ground in your basement.

Here at Rightway Waterproofing, we are experts at getting your basement finished. For over 20 years, we have been serving our customers with the highest quality waterproofing services, mold remediation services, basement finishing, and basement inspection services in the Philadelphia area. These processes aim to eliminate black mold and mildew and make sure your space is safe to spend time in. So, why are basements better in the summer?

Basements are Naturally Cooler

Like we said — summer around Philly is hot. We here at Rightway Waterproofing are always looking to stay cool in the summer months, and what’s a better way to beat the heat than in a newly renovated basement? A lot of people don’t know this, but dirt acts as an insulator during the summer. What’s that mean? It means that your basement is likely to be the coolest part of your house with no air conditioning necessary.

Your Space for Entertainment

Whether you’re watching the newest binge-worthy TV show or cheering on the Phillies,  using your finished basement as an entertainment center lets you enjoy the cooler temperature in complete comfort. Not only that, but a newly renovated basement is ideal for hosting guests, no matter the occasion.

John and Barbara Vicich

“We wanted to thank you for your personal and specialized attention to the water problem we had in our basement. You took the time to inspect the whole situation and gave us recommendations, all of which worked. You had a way of explaining the process and materials that would be used in a way that we understood. We are very pleased with the work that was done and would highly recommend your company to anyone.”

Debbie, Berwyn

“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

Doug Smith, Glenside

“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.”


Angelo and Sandra Patiri

“We had our basement waterproofed with Rightway Waterproofing in 2007, after all this time and just getting through Hurricane Irene, we did not get a drop of water in our basement. Rightway Waterproofing did a very good job and we are very satisfied!”
