Basement Waterproofing Harrisburg PA: Your Key to Protecting Your Home’s Foundation and Increasing Value
Basement waterproofing your Harrisburg home may be one of the most important investments you ever make.
A lot of homeowners put this off because they consider it too large of an investment or something that can be put off “until next year.” However, when you consider how waterproofing your basement can improve the health of you and your family dramatically…and increase the value of the home you worked so hard for by at least 25%, it’s actually a no-brainer.
And, since many Harrisburg homes are hit hard by water problems, waterproofing is an absolute must to prevent the dreaded “foundation failure”.
Whenever it rains or snows, water gets into the ground around your home, it creates pressure on the basement and foundation walls. Groundwater exerts pressure on the basement and foundation walls of your home as it seeps through the earth.
The water pressure against a basement when the soil is thoroughly soaked is called hydrostatic pressure. It can force moisture through pores in the basement wall and even crack or buckle the wall itself. Proper drainage is the remedy. This is why new drainage systems and waterproofing is needed so badly in Harrisburg.
Watch the video below…it’s a classic example of what happens when a homeowner puts off putting in new drainage systems and having waterproofing done.
DON’T be this person! As you heard in the video, the repairs were well over $50,000. Investing in waterproofing costs a fraction of that and also increases your home’s value when it’s time to sell.
As an realtor will tell you, buyers head for the hills at the first signs of mold or cracks in the foundation. In a tough housing market, like the one Harrisburg is living with now, every advantage counts when selling your home.
