Downers Grove, IL September 17, 2008
With the housing market in a slump, more and more homeowners are investing in their existing homes. One of the best, long-term investments for a house is basement waterproofing for added usable space and possible finishing. Emecole claims that it is wiser and healthier to first minimize humidity, prevent deadly soil gases from entering a home, eradicate mold, and stop damaging water leaks before they happen. Roy Spencer, Owner of Perma-Seal Basement Systems in Downers Grove, IL, says, “It is a lot easier and less expensive to fix these problems before than it is after you have finished your basement.” Fortunately, basement waterproofing and prefinishing can be done on a budget while also making the downstairs living space attractive and safe for children.
