What is waterproofing, you say. That is ensuring that the area you need to work on to will not leak come rain or snow. Moisture built up is the most common reason in the basement, but in the attic or in our roofs, it's obviously cracks and openings where water can seep through. If that happens, either you get puddles on the floor with the leak or decaying ceilings that you need to replace costing you more than doing the preventive measure of waterproofing them. That's actually not the only problem you have to encounter you let such happen, because the moment you have moist ceilings, walls, cupboards or any that is wood, you are inviting insects like termites to infest your home. Another problem to deal with that will not only be costly but irritating to the senses as well since you have to bear with the trouble of inviting professionals to get rid of them with pesticides that will stay smelling for weeks…unless you can spend a fortune for non-smelling ways.
So why not go on preventive now and start waterproofing before those leaks get to you?
