Prepare For Winter with MA Basement Waterproofing

Prepare For Winter with MA Basement Waterproofing

With summer in the rearview mirror, you might think you’re in the clear for a little while when it comes to water damage. Fall is usually a relatively dry season, so it’s the perfect time to evaluate your home and prepare for the winter. Here at Global Basement Waterproofing, we offer a variety of professional services to keep your basement dry. But there are some things you can do on your own to complete the MA basement waterproofing process.

What Can I Do?

The best thing you can do is make some changes on the outside of your home. Altering your landscape can drastically reduce the amount of water around your foundation, without having to put forth a lot of effort. Making sure the land around your house slants away from your foundation is key to keeping water out. Also, double check that your ground spouts and gutters aren’t discharging water too close – five feet is generally the rule. Even though plants and shrubbery around the perimeter of your home can be aesthetically pleasing, try to keep them at least twelve feet from the edge of your foundation.

Minor leaks are also something you can repair on your own. You can purchase a variety of waterproof and sealers for your basement walls that are perfect for small leaks. Larger cracks or severe foundation problems are best left up to the professionals.

What Do You Do?

After all that, you’re probably asking yourself what we do? Our MA basement waterproofing professionals can install a variety of pump and drain systems to redirect water away from your home, perform wall repair, and improve ventilation.

If you take care of the outside, we’ll work our magic to make the inside the perfect extra room in your home. For more information about our services or to schedule a consultation, please call 1-800-593-2090.
