What You Need to Know About Basement Waterproofing BEFORE Selling a Home

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016 by Katerina Hladikova


In this blog article, we discussed what you should know about wall cracks in your basement, however, even if the walls are stabilized, you still have to worry about water entering the basement. Covering up cracks is never a permanent solution, as water always finds its way back in.

Here are a few signs of water leaking into your basement:

Your next step should be waterproofing your basement. 

WaterGuard is an internal drainage system that is installed along the floor of the basement that leads to a sump pump which pumps the water right out.

There are several different sump pumps that can be purchased. We recommend the The Triple Safe Sump Pump with battery backup, which will keep your basement dry even if the power is out!
