When it comes to waterproofing exterior foundation walls, summer can be one of the best times to get the job taken care of. At A-Proseal Basement Waterproofing, we provide exceptional waterproofing and foundation repair services to residents of the Island Lake, IL area. Below are just a few reasons as to why summer is the best waterproofing season.

Excellent Working Conditions– With summer weather comes gorgeous days and clear blue skies. These make for some of the best working conditions, as hot and dry conditions allow the work to properly progress and settle quickly.

Speeds up Treatments– Certain waterproofing methods can take a long time to dry, but the warm and clear conditions of the summer weather only speed up the drying process. Prolonged rain or snow, like we see in the spring and winter, can slow down the curing time and decrease the waterproofing effectiveness, so summer weather is perfect for an efficient job to be completed.

The Importance of Repairing a Damaged Foundation

It may seem easier to wait until the damage becomes problematic to spend the money on repairs, however, that’s not the case with your foundation. Not only does letting it go mean you’ll end up paying more for repairs down the line, but foundation damage can also lead to other damage within the home.

Moisture is your foundation’s main enemy and the longer you allow moisture to seep into your home, the worse the damage is going to become. Be sure to check your foundation periodically to ensure that it is not sagging, cracking, or deteriorating. If you see any signs of cracks or damage, even if they seem small, call in the professionals right away before it becomes a major problem.

3 Things You Can Use Your Basement For

Waterproofing ServicesDo you want to renovate your basement into useable space? If so, the first thing you have to do is to stop water from being able to seep into your basement. We offer basement waterproofing services, so you can create the basement of your dreams. At A-Proseal Basement Waterproofing, we thought we would share with you three creative ways to use this newly renovated space.

Game Room- Depending on the size of your basement, you could turn it into a game room with a pool table, arcade game, air hockey, and ping pong table. There’s no need to leave the house when you have your very own arcade in your basement. Don’t forget to keep score.

Home Theater- Are you a movie fanatic? Watch your favorite films on the big screen without going to a movie theater. Just walk downstairs to your very own home theater. You won’t have to worry about a kid kicking your seat, standing in the popcorn line, or missing the first couple of minutes of the movie.

Wet Bar- You can make your basement the place to hang out by building your own wet bar. You could design the layout to fit in the corner, so you could still have a game room or a home theater with a bar on the side. This way you don’t have to go back upstairs for another drink.

Before you can start renovating, don’t forget to call us at (847) 525-7394 for waterproofing services. We look forward to helping you take the next step towards your dream basement.
