6 Benefits Of Hiring A Waterproofing Specialist

While it can be tempting to handle waterproofing projects on your own, hiring a waterproofing specialist is typically the best option for most waterproofing projects, and there are several reasons why it’s almost always better to hire a professional, including the following.

1. Experience & Expertise

Waterproofing specialists have extensive knowledge of a wide range of waterproofing techniques and materials. This ensures high-quality results, but this knowledge level allows us to match the best waterproofing materials and systems to your home’s specific needs.

At Thome Waterproofing, we use the latest technologies and materials that might not be readily available to the general public, and we stay up-to-date on the latest industry advancements to provide our clients with the most effective waterproofing solutions.

2. Comprehensive Assessment

As a homeowner, you may notice obvious signs of water intrusion, but waterproofing experts typically find areas of moisture that might not be easy for homeowners to spot. Additionally, they can accurately diagnose the underlying causes of water problems and create a comprehensive solution.

3. Enjoy Long-Term Protection

Hiring a waterproofing company can be the best way to ensure long-lasting protection against water damage. You can enjoy many years without having to deal with structural issues and make costly repairs, and proper waterproofing also prevents mold and mildew from developing. DIY products and methods just don’t produce the same type of long-lasting results that a professional can provide.

4. Waterproofing Increases Your Property Value

Proper waterproofing increases the overall value of your property, and not just because waterproofing, such as crawlspace waterproofing and below-grade waterproofing, protects the structural integrity of your property.

Waterproofing services such as deck waterproofing and balcony waterproofing also improve the look of these structures. We can even provide you with decorative coatings that transform the look of your pool deck and other concrete decking.

5. Waterproofing Can Improve Your Health

When moisture seeps into your floorboards and walls, this is the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew.  Mold can be dangerous for anyone’s health, but especially for those with asthma and chronic respiratory infections, as well as those with allergies.

If the mold in your home begins producing mycotoxins, this can lead to chronic headaches and even serious neurological issues such as memory loss and dizziness. Prolonged mold exposure also can weaken your immune system, which makes the body more susceptible to infection.

When it comes to your health, one should not take any chances. This is why it is so important to hire a waterproofing specialist to ensure that your home’s foundation is waterproofed correctly. In California, we typically don’t need basement waterproofing, but many homes have crawlspaces and these should be fully encapsulated and waterproofed by a professional to ensure that moisture won’t damage your home or your health.

6. Waterproofing Is Cost-Effective

While hiring a waterproofing specialist is an expense, it’s far cheaper to pay for proper waterproofing than it is to repair the damage caused by water and moisture. The durability and effectiveness of professional waterproofing provide long-term financial benefits.

At Thome Waterproofing, we are committed to providing our customers with high-quality waterproofing services that will stand the test of time. We know that waterproofing is an investment, but it’s truly one of the best ways to prevent serious damage to your home. In addition to avoiding the cost of expensive structural repairs, waterproofing also ensures that you don’t have to pay for mold remediation and water restoration, both of which can be costly to fix.

Keep in mind, that while we can provide you with quality waterproofing, we may also recommend that you improve the drainage around your home. Proper drainage ensures that water flows away from your home, and a combination of waterproofing and quality drainage systems are the best ways of preventing damage to your home.
