Water damage can have a devastating effect on your home and family. The moisture can cause mold and mildew to accumulate on wood, drywall and countless other surfaces. Footings can be washed out, or even entire portions of a home can settle and cause cracks to appear in various locations. Sometimes minor foundation damage can be repaired in conjunction with minor waterproofing to prevent any further damage. However, there are times when water can cause structural issues that must be addressed before even bigger problems arise.
Why Structural Repairs are Not a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Project:
There many projects that can be done around the house by experienced do-it-yourself enthusiasts which require little experience. Structural crack repairs may be as simple as using a little spackle, if it is thin and unmoving. Even in those circumstances, only a full inspection will reveal the cause of the cracks and what should be done about it. Here are a few reasons why structural repairs are not a DIY project:
Most structural repair work requires work permits and inspections, during and after the work has been completed. Mid-Atlantic Waterproofing knows every state and local code in order to get the job done promptly and effectively.
Many waterproofing products and systems have warranties that are voided if they are not installed by a certified professional. Every one of our trained installers has been certified with all of our products and systems. Did you know that some pest control agreements are voided if standing water is present? Home owners insurance will not cover the penetration of subterranean water.
Working on structural portions of your home without the proper knowledge can drastically damage it. Each house is different and each scenario has specific solutions for resolving your home's water problem. With decades of experience and over 100,000 households serviced, Mid-Atlantic Waterproofing knows what to look for and how to fix the problem.
