There are preventative measures that will help you to skip the expensive waterproofing of your basement or having a complete drainage system installed in your home’s basement.

  • Does your roof have any visible signs of damage?
  • Are your gutters clean and clear of debris?
  • Are your downspouts far enough from your home’s foundation?

Asking questions like this and doing a whole home exterior check may help you see what exactly is the culprit of the water in your basement may be. Before ripping up your finished basement, or doing a complete basement overhaul. Check the outside of your home!
