It’s important to get wet basements repaired as quickly as possible. If water is getting in at all, this is usually an indication that there are some problems with your foundation, and water erosion can make those problems much worse very quickly. For the safety of your home, call Ottawa General Contractors LTD as soon as you’ve identified that there is water is getting through your foundation.
Remember that water damage doesn’t always cause just structural problems. A leaky basement can also give you problems like…
- Unpleasant Odors
- Mold Growth
- Wood Rot
- Buckling Walls
- Compromised Storage
Sometimes, cracks are just bound to happen. This is particularly true for homes in wet climates that must endure the constant damping and drying (and freezing) of the surrounding soil. A well-made home can weather these small cracks well, but they should still be treated every few years to keep them from becoming larger ones. The cracks will definitely get worse as water moves through them, so pay close attention to them all year round.
