An unprotected, unsealed property, is an unprotected home. The damage that results from leaks can negatively impact on both your property and your pocket. By waterproofing, a long-term, protective barrier is created for your home or workplace, while escalating costs in repairs are prevented.
Waterproofing holds numerous benefits, including:
1.Preventing water damage
Roofs, decks and ceilings often invite water in and soak inside their comfy warmth – when they aren’t properly sealed of course. Once this happens, especially during the rainy season, the consequences are endless and oh so expensive! Wooden roofs can collapse if untreated, walls crack and moisture inside the walls turn into mold. Instead of going through this hassle, take preventative measures, stop those leaks before they spread – waterproof!
When water makes its way into your home, the air becomes humid, causing damage and physical discomfort. Waterproofing protects your home by averting leaks and as such the humidity drops. The air cools down – and your home is left dry and comfortable
3.Keeping your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer
Waterproofing can act as a heater and a cooler all at once. A well-sealed, properly waterproofed roof safeguards your home, blocking out icy cold weather in the winter and burning heat in summer – ensuring enjoyable indoor weather all year round.
4.Saving electricity and contributing to a healthier environment
Since a waterproofing system is a natural air conditioner in the summer and heater in the winter, there is no need for extra technical appliances to do this job for you. This is a major cost-saver on electricity bills and a step towards a responsible attitude to a greener environment.
Once water has entered your building and damaged the structure, the property value decreases extensively. By waterproofing your building, you prevent the damage and therefore retain the value of your property.
6.Healthy living conditions can save money!
By warding off water damage, decaying equipment and inventory, your property is shielded against unhealthy working conditions and the danger of roofs collapsing. Preventing these harmful incidents through preventative waterproofing can save you money in medical bills and legal fees.
Waterproofing is a long-term investment that pays itself off. By waterproofing your valuable property, you are able to prevent water damage, diminish humidity, retain the value of your property, and keep your home or work environment properly isolated by natural means, thereby saving on electricity and contributing towards a better environment. When waterproofing, you invest once off rather than paying for years’ worth of damage to your home. Waterproofing is an investment that can end up saving you a lot on damage expenses were these preventative measures not taken. Be smart – seal it!
