Unfortunately, many homeowners and commercial property owners are unaware of the real dangers of poor or non-existent waterproofing. A building that isn’t protected against leaks, moisture, seasonal rainfall damage and similar, won’t just experience damage in the form of mould and mildew growth, but real structural damage and deterioration can be a serious problem too – and one that can cost a great deal to rectify in the long run.
Ensuring that your building is properly waterproofed will save you money in the following ways:
- A waterproofed home will be well insulated, which means that your heating costs during the colder months will be considerably less than that of a building without waterproofing and insulation.
- Waterproofing will ensure that the floors, walls and ceilings remain completely dry. This means that you won’t have to spend money on treating dry rot, wet rot, damp and potential contamination from pests, mould and mildew. These can all be costly to repair or treat.
- With the right insulation, you can avoid costly repairs to cracks that easily form and grow in interior and exterior concrete walls that are exposed to water or constant moisture.
- Poor waterproofing can lead to gradual or sudden water damage, which in turn can cause damage to your interior furniture and wooden features such as door frames, flooring, skirting and more. With correct waterproofing you can avoid the cost to repair or replace these items.
If you are looking for an effective and efficient waterproofing and insulation solution for your home or commercial property, make sure you find a trusted and viable service provider, so that you can also save money and prevent damage to your assets.
