How Foundation Waterproofing Can Save You Money
One of the biggest concerns for homeowners considering foundation waterproofing is the cost. Waterproofing your foundation can cost thousands to tens of thousands of dollars depending on the system used, the level of damage to be repaired and the contractor you choose. Many homeowners put off waterproofing as they feel they simply can’t afford it.
This is the wrong way to look at foundation waterproofing. You should instead see it as an investment in your property. In fact, waterproofing your foundation can save you a lot of money in the long run.
- Waterproofing will help to lower the cost of home insurance
Waterproofing your foundation is a great way to lower your insurance premiums. Many insurance companies consider waterproofing of the foundation investment in your home. They think of it as a way to secure the home and prevent damage as a result of seepage. There is therefore reduced risk associated with your property.
Once you are done with the renovations, be sure to notify your insurance provider. You may score a more attractive premium.
- It will help save money on repairs
Basement flooding can mean disaster for a homeowner’s finances. You not only have to clean and dry out your basement but also pay for the waterproofing and repairs. You also have to deal with the loss of property damaged by the water. You can save yourself the hassle by simply investing in waterproofing in the first place.
- You will save on energy costs
Waterproofing will not just keep the water out. It will also help to protect your home from the elements. A waterproof home will retain heat much better than one whose foundation is exposed. It will also keep the heat out in the summer. You will notice a reduction in your energy consumption over the summer and winter in the months following the waterproofing.
- You will save on medical expenses
A leaking basement is a health concern. It will create the perfect environment for mold and pests to thrive. Leaking basements can, therefore, be the root cause of various health problems including asthma, allergies and respiratory issues. You can avoid the high medical costs of dealing with these issues by simply investing in waterproofing of your foundation. You will reduce the health risks in your home and help you save on medical expenses.
Waterproofing is a great investment in your home and your health.
