Winter Prep: Basement Waterproofing and Repair
Regarding basement repair in South Dakota, it is never too early to prepare for the wet spring and summer months. It may seem a bit excessive to start waterproofing and fixing your foundation in winter, but you will be grateful when you spare your home from water and other damage in the spring. One of the experts here at Rapid Foundation Repair will be happy to come to your property, assess your situation, and provide you with the best basement repair solution!
Basement Waterproofing Options
Most homeowners in South Dakota know the dangers of water damage. Due to varying moisture levels in the soil around and under your home, your foundation may begin to sink or shift. This can create serious problems in your foundation, such as cracks. These cracks allow unwanted moisture and pests to creep into your basement. A damp environment is a perfect place for mold and mildew to grow. Mold contaminates the air you breathe, which is a danger to your health and your family. Luckily, water damage can be avoided by taking a few simple steps to prepare your basement.
There are several options for preparing your basement for the spring. Basement drainage systems are effective solutions when it comes to diverting the water that enters the area. However, true basement waterproofing will prevent any water or moisture from entering the area at all. Here at Rapid Foundation Repair, we are happy to install sump pumps, battery backup sump pumps, vapor barriers, and interior and exterior drainage systems.
Basement Repair Options
Waterproofing your basement is a step in the right direction, but to fix the situation entirely, it’s important to go directly to the source. Foundation troubles are the source of a lot of common problems around the home, ranging from slight annoyances to dangerous situations. As previously mentioned, foundation problems are caused by the moisture level in the soil. When your foundation sinks and shifts, it causes many problems, such as wall and foundation cracks, sticking windows and doors, leaning and bowing walls, stoop and porch problems, and sinking and settling garages.
