It's 2017, and while the ball may have already dropped, that doesn't mean YOU should drop the ball on your basement waterproofing! And while keeping resolutions might be hard, we here at Connecticut Basements are here to make sure that you have reliable basement resolutions for the year ahead!
1. Service Your Waterproofing Products
Getting your basement waterproofing or crawl space encapsulation system is crucial to keeping your system working like it's meant to work. Annual maitenance is crucial to your system, and our service team is happy to come out and help you! Whether it is checking your valves, pipes, or batteries, our fully trained waterproofing professionals work hard to make sure that everything you have is running smoothly. If you have any questions, they will be happy to answer them!
2. Check Your Crawl Space For Mold Damage
Wood rot is something that something that shouldn't be ignored. Wood rot destroys about 20 billion board feet of timber each year which is far more than the annual amount destroyed by fire damage. With our crawl space supports, also known as jack posts, you can be sure that your crawl space will not only be supported, but will also repair the damage. Eventually, over time, they work to bring your wood back to it's original form. So, even though crawl spaces can be creepy, don't be afraid to check them out. They may need that little extra boost.
3. Encapsulate That Space!
Sometimes, a dirty crawl space is an unhappy crawl space. Dirt and mold can wreak havoc on your space if it isn't taken care of, and it's just an overall unpleasant place to look, much less look down at. With our Clean Space Vapor Barrier, we can turn your space from unsightly, dirty to safe and comfortable. This durable, 20mil plastic sheet material is designed to prevent moisture, outside air and pests from getting into your crawl space.
Now that you have some resolutions in your pocket, you can look forward to a better 2017 with an even better basement and/or crawl space. Want to start checking things off your resolution goal list? Give us a call TODAY, and we'll schedule a FREE estimate with one of our system design specialists!
