Can I Afford to Waterproof My Basement?

Friday, March 22nd, 2013 by Betsy Rathburn

The best way to keep water out of your basement is to take preventative measures against it. And the best way to do that is to use quality products properly installed by professionals. But some homeowners are hesitant to take the plunge for fear of an expensive bill that they can’t afford. Our installers have seen plenty of patched together solutions to serious water problems, like this makeshift sump pump – scrapped together with a bucket and a hose – that a homeowner tried using to dry out their dirt crawl space:

But we’re not surprised that homeowners resort to their own solutions. Extensive home repairs are costly – but not as costly as they will be if you don’t make efforts to correct the problem as soon as it forms. Property damage, mold, flooding, rot – the problems that can arise with a continuing moisture problem are well-known, and they can make a huge difference if you ever want to resell your home.

So what do you do if you don’t have money saved towards home repairs, but you really need to do something about your problem? Innovative Basement Authority offers an affordable financing option for homeowners who need to fix their wet basement now. Our specialists are trained to help you make the best choice for your home – while saving the most money you can – and they can answer all of your questions about financing your waterproofing project.

Basement water is a serious problem, and it can lead to even more trouble if you don’t address it as soon as you notice it. So when you ask yourself whether you can afford to waterproof your basement, maybe you should really be asking whether you can afford not to.
