Top Reasons to Have Waterproofing Done When You're Having Your Home Built

Construction & Contractors Blog

If you are preparing to have a home built, you might already be making some big plans about all of the things that you want to have done during the building process. You might not have thought about working with a waterproofing service just yet, but it's actually a really good idea to have waterproofing done while your home is being built, rather than avoiding having it done at all or having it done later. These are some of the top reasons why you might want to have waterproofing done now, while your home is still being constructed.

Include It in the Cost of Your Home

If you include waterproofing in your building plans, then you might be able to include the cost of waterproofing into the cost of building your home. Therefore, you may be able to include the cost with the financed cost of your house so that you will not have to pay out of pocket for waterproofing right away. Plus, you might find that waterproofing is going to be cheaper when it's done this way, too. If you aren't sure, you can talk to your builder and your lender for more information about this.

Avoid Water Damage

The whole reason why you should consider having waterproofing done on your home is so that you can protect your foundation, your basement, and more from mold, mildew, water damage, and other water-related issues. If you go ahead and have waterproofing done when you are building your home, you can help ensure that no water damage occurs in your new home at all.

Avoid Damage During Waterproofing

When you have waterproofing done on an existing home, you do sometimes have to worry about some damage being done in the process. Of course, in most cases, this damage is worth it, since the waterproofing can provide such important protection for your home. However, if you have exterior waterproofing done on an established home, then you have to worry about trenching being done all the way around the home, which can damage your landscaping. Not only do you have to worry about damage, but you also have the worry about the process feeling a bit invasive.

Of course, if you want to protect your existing home, it's still worth it to consider exterior waterproofing, even despite these downsides. However, if you want to enjoy the protection that waterproofing can offer without having to worry about damage or disruption later on, then it's smart to have waterproofing done during the building process.

Welcome! My name is Frances, and this is my first blog. Whether you found me through a Google search or were passed my link by a friend, I am so glad you found my blog. I plan to fill it with a range of commentary on the world of contracting and construction work, and I hope that you find my ideas compelling and creative. I am a dog trainer, but I have always loved the world of construction. I tend to work a lot on the weekends and evenings, when my clients are off work. As a result, I have a lot of time to write during the day, and I decided to create this blog. Thank you for reading.
