One of the most devastating mistakes you can make is assuming that just because you don't see what is going on behind the scenes, that means everything is going great. We've all heard the phrase, "Out of sight, out of mind." It's a popular phrase for a reason. When something is out of sight, it’s easy to put it out of your mind and assume all is well, and that is just fine. Until it isn't. Until something fails catastrophically.
The main purpose of a house is to provide shelter, and if your home has cracks, holes or leaks, it isn't doing its job. Furthermore, if your house doesn’t keep water outside, you risk losing valuables or doing extensive damage to your home’s underlying structure. This is why waterproofing your home is critically important.
You may not think a miniscule leak is doing much damage, but even a small leak, over time, can cause your roof to become saturated, eventually rotting away rafters and sheathing alike, leading to a dangerously unstable structure. Yes, that means that one tiny leak, if left untreated, can eventually bring your whole house down.
We have the expertise to apply whatever means necessary to fix your roof and keep your attic dry. Our experts will assess your problem and use the best method to fix your roof, including flashing around chimneys and vents, patching the underlayment beneath the shingles and more.
Sometimes, though, the problem isn't in the roof, but in the basement instead. Basements can have all kinds of water problems. Water can seep in around improperly sealed windows or through cracks in the structure of your home. These things can lead to a flooding basement. In turn, a flooded basement, especially if the water in it is left to sit for any length of time, can severely weaken the foundation of your home, not to mention ruin any personal items you might have stored there.
Our employees are more than employees. They are professional specialists. They have years of expertise and are trained to spot even the smallest signs of water damage. Once they've identified and assessed the problem, they can then address any issues that might be occurring. However, because we believe prevention is much better than patching or fixing something that has already been damaged, our specialists will also discuss with you any issues that could arise in your home's future.
Remember, just because it is out of sight certainly doesn't mean it should be out of mind. Being proactive about waterproofing can ensure the structural integrity of your home for years to come.
