5 Reasons To Hire A Waterproofing Specialist

Because water damage can be costly and destructive, buildings and homes must be properly waterproofed and hiring an experienced waterproofing specialist is the best way to ensure that your structures don’t encounter water damage and structural damage for many years to come.

At Thome Waterproofing, we handle a myriad of waterproofing projects every year, and we handle many projects at the initial construction stages when it’s easiest to install proper waterproofing. Of course, we also tend to fix mistakes made either by less experienced waterproofing companies or by homeowners that attempted a DIY waterproofing project. For either a commercial or residential project of any scope, it is always best to hire a waterproofing specialist, and here’s why.

1. We Can Identify Potential Issues

Whether we come into a project at the early stages of construction or we are handling a waterproofing project after a home, building, planter, deck or other structure has been built, we can assess and identify potential water infiltration issues. Waterproofing projects often include much more than simply adding waterproofing membranes or waterproofing systems to a structure.

For instance, with crawlspace waterproofing, we might also notice that your yard needs additional sources of drainage as well as more rain gutters or downspouts or perhaps even a portion of the lawn needs to be regraded to allow for proper water flow away from the home.

2. Waterproofing Specialists Save You Money

Whether your project is a large skyscraper or a single-family home, proper waterproofing is one of the best ways to prevent structural issues. When water seeps into your foundation, this can cause serious settlement issues not to mention issues such as mold and termite damage.

Repairing structural damage is extremely expensive, and far more costly than paying for proper waterproofing services. Of course, you do need to select experienced waterproofing contractors that can handle your specific waterproofing needs. Some companies specialize in just one or two types of waterproofing or only have experience working with a limited selection of waterproofing materials and systems.

At Thome Waterproofing, we have extensive experience with many types of waterproofing projects as well as a myriad of waterproofing materials. If you browse under the Waterproofing & Coating Projects as well as the Residential & Commercial Waterproofing Services tabs on our website, you can get a sense of our abilities and experience.

3. A Waterproofing Company Will Guarantee Their Work

When selecting a waterproofing company, you want to look for a team that is licensed and insured, but also one that will guarantee their work. We stand by our work, and our owner oversees each project from start to finish, and this brings our clients much peace of mind.

We also have the knowledge and expertise to ensure that the waterproofing system we put in place is the ideal match for your specific structure. With 15+ years of experience, we’ve handled a wide range of projects and understand how to design a waterproofing system that will stand the test of time.

4. We Have The Proper Equipment & Tools

We have access to the best equipment and waterproofing materials and products that aren’t always easy for homeowners to access. Because we can purchase in bulk, we also tend to get better deals than a homeowner would find for these same products. If you factor in purchasing all of the materials, equipment and your time (not to mention our expertise), hiring a waterproofing specialist can be well worth the cost.

5. We Reduce Your Workload

While there are some waterproofing projects that you might be tempted to tackle on your own, even the smallest jobs tend to require a good amount of physical labor and it typically would take homeowners far longer to complete the project than it would a waterproofing specialist. Again, we also will complete the project correctly the first time, so you won’t have to worry about costly repairs in the future.

When it comes to DIY projects, waterproofing is one of several that we don’t recommend homeowners tackle on their own. Most electrical tasks also should be handled by professionals, as well as many large-scale plumbing tasks. While it can seem cost-effective to tackle projects on your own, professionals can help you avoid costly repairs down the line and fixing issues is often far more expensive than simply hiring a pro and having the job done correctly in the first place.
