It is the best and most convenient time to waterproof

Waterproofing can be an intrusive process, and if the leakage or dampness issue is bad, it may involve digging up the floor or stripping off the paint and tile layers of walls. As home owners, we look for convenience in everything we do and it is very inconvenient to have to dig or peel off a newly-renovated space. All that can be avoided by doing a round of preventive waterproofing when you are renovating.

A money saver

It may seem like an additional cost when you add up the expenses of renovation plus waterproofing. However, I see waterproofing as a money saver. Think of it as an investment – because it does give you rich rewards in terms of peace of mind. And, when you actually look at future cash outflows for waterproofing fixes, this one-time investment will surely make it worthwhile, especially when you consider the fact that redecorating expenses will have to be borne too.

A health insurer

Dampness and mold in homes can cause a variety of respiratory problems, ranging from allergies to serious, life-threatening infections, as well as mental stress.  If renovations are already planned it makes sense to factor in waterproofing, so that your family’s health is not compromised, especially due to something as avoidable as this.

Waterproofing is healthy for home

Waterproofing is healthy for both your home and your family, guaranteeing years of peace of mind when done right. So remember that renovations can last longer when they are backed by waterproofing. Waterproofing ensures that you live life stress-free in your Happy Home!
