Do-It-Yourself Basement Waterproofing Can Lead to Much Bigger Problems


A lot of homes in the Indianapolis and Columbus area need professional basement waterproofing due to leak and moisture problems. Many homeowners, however, opt to handle the problems by themselves to save money. Unfortunately, a moist, wet, or flooded basement is more complicated than they think.

Without fully understanding the dynamics of water, cement, soil, and cement blocks that comprise a house’s footing, you can make costly mistakes when trying waterproof the basement on your own. For instance, you may temporarily stop the leak and eliminate the dampness but you could, at the same time, reduce the stability of the footing by removing too much soil. This is why it’s crucial to leave basement waterproofing to professionals.
