The arrival of fall in New York and New Jersey means more than the changing of the leaves and the arrival of cooler weather; it also a signal to homeowners to start thinking about winterizing their homes.

While this means different things in different parts of the country, in areas like ours basement sealing should be high up on the list of things to do.

Many homeowners don’t give their basements much thought until some type of damage or mold occurs due to a lack of basement waterproofing sealing. You can avoid expensive repairs by investing in waterproofing systems as a preventative measure.

Why Basement Waterproofing is Important

A number of issues are associated with too much water in the basement. The good news is that they are preventable with quality basement sealing. Some of the issues waterproofing systems help you avoid include:

  • Mold: Mold isn’t just a warm-weather problem; it can thrive anywhere there is moisture—and it’s not just mold in the basement you have to worry about. If there is excess moisture in your basement, it will rise through the rest of your home as it evaporates. This can lead to mold and mildew problems throughout your home.
  • Increased Energy Costs: Have you taken steps to lower your heating and cooling costs? Don’t let those positive changes be undermined by too much moisture. According the US Department of Energy, humidity in the basement can cause an increase of up to 18% on your energy bills.
  • Structural Problems: Acid damage, cracks, and spalling are all signs that you might need repairs to your foundation. Some such issues are minor while others are much more serious—but none should be ignored. Prevent these potentially expensive problems with thorough basement waterproofing.
