Spring is just around the corner and everyone knows what that means. Big, torrential rain and downpours are going to be heading our way. Not to mention, in certain areas that might have gotten frost and that dreaded precipitation, snow, the melt from that can add to the moisture and water tables.
Areas with high water tables, high annual rainfall and no frost in the soil, more commonly use slab-on-grade foundations. But even these property’s foundations need safety and protection to keep moisture and liquids from traveling up from the ground through the concrete. That’s where waterproofing or dampproofing can come in.
Waterproofing a home’s foundation does the same thing as dampproofing, but is much more precise in the treatment to the concrete walls. If there is any doubt about whether or not dampproofing will do the job and last for the life of the home or property, then it’s best to spend the extra money and time to waterproof the foundation, especially for a place where there will be habitation.
