Basement Issues in a House You Would Love to Buy

Posted on Posted in Waterproofing

Everyone knows that when shopping for a new home, one must thoroughly inspect the property before signing anything to make sure there aren’t any problems the seller or real estate agent may have “forgotten” to tell you. This is especially true when you’re looking at houses with previous owners.


However, there are cases when you have fallen in love with a house and it has basement issues but you absolutely can’t part with it. Before you sign the dotted line, be sure you ask the seller about underlying issues. To protect yourself further, hire a qualified home inspector to give you a full report about the house.


if you are resolute in buying a property with dampness issues in the basement, dealing with it must be your top priority. Failing to do so may result to structural and property damage as well as health risks.


Invest in basement waterproofing. The old adage “Better safe than sorry” definitely applies in this case. Consult with a professional. While there are countless articles and videos on the internet on how to do it yourself, it’s always safer to hire a waterproofing professional especially if you have never dealt with wet basement before.
