When to Waterproof your South Dakota Home
South Dakota and the other areas we serve including parts of Nebraska and Wyoming can really take a hit when it comes to the effects of weather on your home’s foundation, basement, or crawlspace. It’s hard to know when to waterproof. Rain and cold weather can effect cracks in concrete, and make it difficult to fix problems that occur during the cold and rainy seasons of the year. So how do you know when to repair your waterproofing problems?
The “WHEN” to Waterproof Question isn’t Easy to Answer
The answer isn’t simple! There are certain types of repairs like crack injection for concrete cracks where the temperature has to be within a certain range to do the repairs. For certain resins to cure the temperature has to be above a certain temperature as well. As for installing sump pumps and other drainage solutions, the ground can’t be frozen in many cases.
