Is your basement waterproofed? If not, you could be missing out on several key benefits and worse yet, you could be exposing your house to serious risk and damage.</span></p><span style="line-height: 200%; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; letter-spacing: 1pt; font-size: 10pt"><p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt" class="MsoNormal"><strong>Here are just some of the top benefits of basement waterproofing.</strong></p>  <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt" class="MsoNormal">• Improves the structural integrity of your home-If water is allowed to seep into the concrete, the structural integrity of your home is compromised. Water weakens the structure, and it can cause serious damage to your home’s foundation. This can lead to expensive repairs, or in the worst case scenario, it could destroy your home.</p>  <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt" class="MsoNormal">Basement waterproofing ensures water isn’t allowed to seep into and sit in the foundation of your home. With proper waterproofing, you’ll have a structurally-sound foundation that extends the lifetime of your home.</p>  <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt" class="MsoNormal">• Prevents growth of dangerous mold-Waterproofing isn’t done just for your home’s health; it’s good for your health too. See, if water pools up inside your home, it makes it easy for mold to start growing. Breathing in this mold on a daily basis can lead to a wide range of health issues from mild to very serious.</p>  <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt" class="MsoNormal">Don’t put your family’s health at risk. Getting your basement waterproofed will eliminate moisture, ensuring mold and mildew don’t show their ugly faces in your home.</p>  <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt" class="MsoNormal">• Maintains the value of your investment-Your home is probably your biggest investment. That’s why it’s important that you do everything you can to maintain and increase the value of your investment. If water gets into your home, the home’s value will instantly decrease. Should you try to sell your home, the lack of basement waterproofing will cause a serious drop in your selling price.</p>  <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt" class="MsoNormal">By waterproofing your basement, you ensure that your foundation and home remain healthy and enjoy a longer lifetime. This allows you to keep your investment at its top value.</p>  <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt" class="MsoNormal">• Protects your belongings from water damage-Just think about the damage that can occur if water leaks into your basement. All of your belongings will be exposed to the water, leading to thousands of dollars of potential damage. Additionally, irreplaceable family items (heirlooms, photographs, etc.) can get damaged by water, and no amount of money will ever get them back.</p>  <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt" class="MsoNormal">Don’t let this happen to you. Basement waterproofing keeps your belongings safe and sound, ensuring no leaks occur in your basement.</p>  <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt" class="MsoNormal">• Allows you to add living space to your home-Waterproofing your basement is the first step into turning it into livable space. This can add hundreds of square feet to your home, giving your family more room and increasing the value of your house.</p>  <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt" class="MsoNormal">This makes basement waterproofing the ideal solution for growing families and for homeowners looking for a way to add value to their investment.</p><p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt" class="MsoNormal"> </p><div style="text-align: center"><object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="425" height="282"><param name="movie" value="../images/banners/1c.swf" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="menu" value="false" /><param name="wmode" value="" /><embed src="../images/banners/1c.swf" wmode="" quality="high" menu="false" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="282"></embed></object></div>  <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt" class="MsoNormal">Simply put, basement waterproofing is something all homeowners need to seriously consider.
