Proper waterproofing is a homeowner's first line of defense against gradual structural weakening caused by water seeping into a house from above and below. As a result, waterproofing should be one of the first improvements a homeowner considers, as it is far better, and more cost-effective, to avoid rather than endure a catastrophe in the future.

Not long ago, I was contacted by a friend of mine regarding Basement walls Waterproofing. This was an extreme case, but I thought I would tell the story just to try and create awareness for damp sealing, and the problems it could cause.
