As much as we hate to say it, summer is nearly over. That means fall and then winter is on its way. Shorter days, colder weather, and less time to work on waterproofing projects. So right now is the best time to get basement waterproofing. Winter brings snow and ice, and that can wreak havoc on your basement. Cold, icy weather causes the soil to contract and shrink, which can leave voids around your foundation. A foundation without support from the soil will sink, settle, and crack.
Any ice or snow that melts can make its way through any basement cracks you may have. Water that is in your basement can cause mold, mildew, wood rot, attract pests, make cracks worse, and ruin anything you have stored in your basement. This can happen year round with rain, but the harsh weather of the winter can be very hard on your foundation. That is why we suggest getting basement waterproofing for your West Virginia home done before the winter months begin.
