TAMPA, FL, March 07, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Tampa sinkhole repair business, All Florida Ram Jack, talks about why you should have your basement walls waterproofed. Regardless of the type of foundation you have, whether it is comprised of block, stone or poured concrete, groundwater can seep in and wreak havoc on your home.
In a vast majority of cases, the leaks start out small, but progressively become worse until noticeably large cracks and fissures appear. The Tampa foundation repair company says the cost to repair basement walls that have suffered water damage is not cheap, which is why waterproofing is so important.
Even if you do not yet notice signs of a water leak, prepping now can save a lot of time and money later on. It should be noted that some leaks are worse than others and as such should be addressed promptly. A faulty gutter system or a damaged water line could very well be the source of the issue, so keep in mind that wet basement walls are not always due to problems with structural integrity.
If your basement is unfinished, now is the time to waterproof the walls. Many specialty paints exist that can be applied to plug any and all crevices on the surface when painted on the inside of your foundation.
According to Johnny Buczynski, CEO of All Florida Ram Jack, "Always remember to waterproof before starting a basement remodeling project. If not adequately sealed, you are creating a space that could potentially harbor harmful mildew and black mold. The only way to waterproof after drywall has been installed is to demo the space, which is always more costly."
