Before Finishing or Renovating Your Basement

Your basement finishing project will invest a significant amount of money in your home.  Waters Basement Services highly recommends that you properly prepare your basement for finishing.  Waterproofing your basement protects your investment for a lifetime, not just a few years.

Finished Basement by Waters Basement Services


1. The first concern before finishing or renovating your basement is to keep it dry.

2. This means protecting your basement from leaks, water or water vapor dampness.

3. Both a wet or even damp basement is unsuitable for finishing.

4. Moisture will get into the building material and cause mold, mildew, or rot.

5. Moisture causes unpleasant orders to floor coverings, furniture, and personal possessions.

You can prevent damage to your home and furnishings, save money, and avoid potential health problems by controlling moisture and eliminating mold growth.

Protect your investment by waterproofing, installing a water or battery back-up Sump Pump system, cleaning your drain tile; and remove high levels of humidity and pollutants with a ventilation system and a high-capacity, high-efficiency dehumidifier.
