Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/22/2014 -- Typically, homeowners look into waterproofing when responding to a problem such as a leak, moisture buildup or water seepage through a concrete wall. Even though waterproofing is the solution for these problems, it can also benefit the foundation of the home in the process. According to Rightway Waterproofing, a basement waterproofing contractor in NJ, waterproofing a basement can protect and prevent serious structural damage from occurring. To the foundation, basement waterproofing can be looked at as insurance.
By avoiding having the basement waterproofed, homeowners are only begging for problems to arise involving the foundation of the home in the future. When water is found coming up through the concrete slab, or through foundation cracks, it is a dead giveaway that there is pressure building up on the outside wall of the foundation. This pressure, known as Hydrostatic Pressure, can weaken the foundation as it presses up against it. Rightway Waterproofing believes that the worst case scenario is structural damage, which could lead to collapsing. Foundation movement could also occur, which would need to be fixed with underpinning.
While it is true that basement waterproofing can solve immediate water damage issues, it will also benefit in the long run, preventing structural damages from occurring. It can also prevent another huge problem from occurring: mold growth. Mold can form and spread throughout the basement if there is even the smallest amount of moisture or water leakage. This living for of bacteria can pollute the air and possible cause illness or heighten allergies to members of the family.

The company can send specialists to a home for a free estimate on any damage they find while inspecting the basement.
