As buildings age, water damage can pose a serious hazard for buildings. That’s why it’s important to look for a reputable waterproofing contractor to help you identify and repair potential problems.
In any renovation or building project, making sure water is redirected is crucial to maintain structural stability over the long-term. Water is one of the main causes of erosion and it weakens materials like concrete, steel, and more.
Here are three reasons why your waterproofing contractor encourages you to get your structure examined for weaknesses and to perform essential maintenance.
1. Keep Your Structure Sturdy
Waterproofing is vital to maintaining the integrity of your structure. If water is constantly leaking in or even dripping on a surface, it may seep inside causing further erosion, cracking, and rusting.
This is especially true in Canada where the weather in winter gets very cold. Frozen pipes and water droplets freezing between small cracks can lead to bigger cracks and larger problems.
Even if you have standard water diversion systems on the exterior, water pressure another problem to consider. Your building may require efficient plumbing and pump systems to ensure that water doesn’t exceed dangerous levels.
NTL Contracting are experts in diverting water in any building project no matter how simple or complex. We offer both interior and exterior waterproofing solutions.
2. Waterproofing Saves You Money Over the Long-Term
There is no point in investing your money in renovations or buildings if you don’t plan to keep them sturdy. If you decide not to pay for waterproofing, weatherproofing, and other maintenance, then eventually erosion, rust, and other issues will cascade out of control into larger repairs. In most cases, investing in early waterproofing will save you lots of money over the long-term.
Don’t be afraid to talk to your waterproofing contractor to see what options are the best for you. Sometimes there are multiple solutions, and your contractor can help you find a solution that fits your budget.
If you are in the business of buying and reselling, then investing in a structure with professional waterproofing solutions will increase the property value, letting you get more return on your investment.
3. Reduce Health Risks
Water damage can also lead to mold, dampness, and conditions that are detrimental to your health. All of this moisture can cause wood in your home to rot, concrete and stone to erode, and allow mold to take hold and thrive.
This, along with the weakened structural integrity, can lead to serious health problems for anyone living in the structure. Not only can an individual get hurt from the structure caving in, but the added mold can cause respitory illnesses.
As a waterproofing contractor, we encourage you to get your home assessed if you believe there is mold forming inside of it. If left unchecked, it can harm the health of you and your loved ones.
