Waterproof your Bradenton home.
Waterproofing isn’t a foreign concept. However, waterproofing your home might be.
To properly waterproof a home, you divide the process into two steps: eliminating the moisture source and sealing the home. Here at JD Cleaning & Painting, we focus on repairing entry points to prevent water from getting into your Bradenton home.
The Risks of Not Waterproofing
In Bradenton, we enjoy many benefits thanks to our location. However, one major downside is the humidity and generally high moisture content. Without waterproofing, your home is at risk of significant damage. Keep in mind this isn’t just aesthetic; water damage can destroy your foundation, compromise your health, and make your home unlivable.
Below are common complications experienced when homes aren’t waterproofed:
Cracked and sagging foundation
Cracked or bulging walls
Which Parts of the Home Should Be Waterproof?
Most surfaces on the exterior of your home can be safely pressure washed so long as the proper setting is used. At JD Cleaning & Painting, we understand the needs of different materials and adjust our machines accordingly. Some of the surfaces we can clean for you include:
Basements can leak for many reasons. One of the biggest culprits is cracking in the walls or floor. These allow outside water to seep into the basement. By the time you notice leaking, there is a strong chance water has already damaged the exterior portions of your basement.
Waterproofing is standard in Bradenton, so it is better to look at it this way—not waterproofing decreases the value of your home. Additionally, any damage that results from not waterproofing will further reduce your profits should you choose to sell.
This will depend on how large the house is, how many areas need waterproofing, and what damage must be repaired first. We will be able to offer you an accurate quote after we assess your home.
