The Benefits of Residential Waterproofing

From lower electricity bills to a much improved living environment, waterproofing your home comes with a string of benefits, which include optimal energy efficiency within your home.

To understand why this crucial bit of maintenance shouldn’t be put off, let’s take a look at some of the ways your house will improve after you waterproof it.

Preventing water damage

A roof that’s not properly sealed is an invitation for water to seep in – often with expensive consequences.

Most of us live in houses with wooden roof beams, and because wood swells and rots when it’s exposed to water, a leaky roof could result in a roof collapse if left untreated.

If you notice wet spots on your ceiling after a major storm, there’s a good chance that your home already has a leak that needs serious attention.

There is no time like the present to stop a leak in its tracks – contact us for more information and we will help you take action.

Keeping your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer

Many homes have a basic level of insulation and waterproofing – but by opting for high quality you will feel the difference.

A roof that is sealed and well-insulated acts like a protective shield, keeping the winter chills and blazing summer heat out of your home by reflecting it off the roof’s surface.

By waterproofing your home, you’ll enjoy pleasant indoor temperatures year-round – which brings us to the last benefit (for today).

Saving electricity

Fact: a home that is well-insulated requires less heating in winter and less cooling in summer.

Considering the high cost of electricity, the monthly savings could run into hundreds of Rands a month, which means that your investment in waterproofing will soon pay for itself.
