Sep 11th 2014 at 10:59 PM

It does not matter if you just moved into a new home or if you have been living in your Connecticut residence for years, you need to know whether or not your basement requires waterproofing. Chances are, if you have been in your home for an extended period of time (especially through one winter), you know if you require waterproofing, although the basement and foundation can deteriorate over time, so what might not have been a problem originally might develop into a rather serious situation. Due to this, you need to know of particular signs that suggest you should utilize basement waterproofing Connecticut services.


If the walls in your basement are concrete and unfinished, look over the stone for any sort of dark spots. Dark spots in the concrete are signs moisture exists inside of the cement, even if water has not started to drip in. Eventually though, these spots are going to develop into leaks, so to save money now, it is best to move ahead with basement waterproofing Connecticut services.

When you enter your basement, does it smell kind of like mold or mildew? If your basement smells like this on a regular basis, it means there is likely water entering in somewhere, even if you have not noticed it yet. Just because it is your basement does not mean it should smell like this. Stay progressive about the situation and utilize the basement waterproofing Connecticut services before it developed into a more serious situation.


Any sort of mold growth is a sign you need waterproofing, not to mention it can develop into a health problem as well. Beyond this, if you have notice any signs of moisture in the basement, ranging from puddles all the way to damp walls, it shows there is a serious issue with the foundation. If you are looking at a particular home, try to inspect it after it rains. This should give you a nice indication as to whether or not you need basement foundation services or not.


Before you move forward with a particular bid on a house, you need to bring in the professional inspectors. These inspectors are going to look over the entire house and tell you exactly what you need to know. Make sure to have one inspect the basement and tell you about the entire situation of the foundation and whether or not you require basement waterproofing. This way, you can correct whatever the issue is, should you have one. Of course, just because you live in Connecticut doesn't mean you have a problem with flooding in the basement. However, you should have it inspected by an expert company such as Rain King Waterproofing before winter so you know what sort of issues the home has.
