Are you lacking in space within your home? Then before you head to your nearest estate agency to discuss buying a bigger property, why not consider waterproofing your basement? If your basement is serving little purpose, it could provide the ideal solution to your space needs. Basement waterproofing is becoming increasing popular as homeowners look to increase the space within their homes without the expense or inconvenience of moving. Many people in Surrey and elsewhere in south east England hire Preservation Treatments to transform their dull, dark and dank basement into a functional and beautiful room.

Why waterproof?

Basements and cellars are often overlooked spaces in our homes. But they can be turned into all sorts of things, from game rooms to extra bedrooms to home gyms. Increasingly as more of us work from home, we’re turning our basements into home offices. Most of Surrey is a good candidate for basement waterproofing. With its substantial rainfall and high water table, it is one of the UK’s most flood-prone areas – although some parts of Surrey are more prone than others. But with a properly installed basement, you can rest easy knowing that your home is well-protected against the elements.

Increased living space and home value

Waterproofing your basement can effectively expand your usable living space. A dry and waterproofed basement provides an opportunity to create additional rooms, such as bedrooms, offices, or entertainment areas. By utilizing this space, you can enhance the functionality and value of your home. Furthermore, when it comes to selling your property, a waterproofed basement is a desirable feature that can attract potential buyers and increase your home’s market value.

Preventing water damage

Waterproofing your basement helps protect your home from water ingress and damage. Water can seep through foundation walls, cracks, or gaps, leading to issues such as mould, wood rot, damage to insulation, and structural damage. If this has happened to you, you might benefit from our Surrey structural repairs service. By waterproofing the basement, you create a barrier against water infiltration, reducing the risk of costly repairs.

Mould and mildew prevention

Basements are often more prone to high humidity levels, which create an environment that mould and mildew just love! These fungi not only cause an unpleasant smell, but can also pose health risks to your family, triggering allergies and respiratory problems. Waterproofing methods such as installing proper drainage systems, sealing cracks, and applying moisture barriers can help control moisture levels, minimizing the likelihood of mould and mildew growth.

It’s important to note that these reasons may vary depending on individual circumstances and the specific needs of your basement. Consulting with a professional waterproofing contractor can provide you with tailored advice based on your situation.
