Why Waterproof A Crawlspace?

Flooded Crawlspaces in NJ Are Most Prominent In The Spring Time.

A crawlspace in New Jersey can get flooded for a variety of reasons. Most of the time during the winter months snow and ice can freeze or crack your crawlspace walls. When this happens it makes it very easy for water to penetrate and flood the crawlspace come springtime. Although a crawlspace may need waterproofing any time of year we just fine that problems are more likely during the spring. Also, because crawlspaces serve a very important function of your home, any small issue to your foundation  can pose significant problems for your home.

It is essential that crawlspace waterproofing is done by certified company. If the work is not done properly the first time around you can risk your foundation walls collapsing. This is why it is always best to get these problems settled sooner than later. When issues in your crawlspace are put off for a long period of time you wind up wasting a lot of time and money.

If The Inspector Recommends A Waterproofing System, Get Multiple Estimates.

Although having water in your crawlspace is a serious problem, sometimes the remedy is relatively simple. Other times a flooded crawlspace represents a much more fundamental problem. Water in your crawlspace can mean that you have a small crack in your foundation walls, or it can mean that your foundation is slowly rotting away. The faster that the crawlspace degrades, the worse the flooding gets, the more expensive it will be to fix it.

Crawlspace Waterproofing Avoids The Advanced Deterioration of Your Foundation Walls.

It is very common for homeowners to put off this type of work because they are worried that they don’t have the money to fix the problem. But crawlspace waterproofing is not always an expensive procedure. If you consider the cost of replacing your entire foundation 10 years down the road because you ignored this problem, then cost shouldn’t be a factor. We have seen many situations where a New Jersey homeowner puts off waterproofing their crawlspace. They wait a few years to do the work and by then an entire wall needs to be ripped out and replaced. This is why the minute you notice water in your crawlspace you should do something about it. Problems with water leakage and flooding only tend to get more expensive as time passes by. So you should always make a strong effort to rectify these problems the first time around.
