In a world obsessed with DIY repairs, you may ask yourself “Why hire waterproofing experts?” As tempting as it may be to want to waterproof your basement or crawlspace yourself, to ensure that the work is long-lasting and done correctly, you will want to use experts. After all, this is the foundation of your home that is responsible for the structural integrity of your house. It deserves the best care and work possible. Let’s break down some of the benefits of hiring waterproofing experts.
Waterproofing Experts are Literally “Experts”

Waterproofing Experts Do Quality Work
Waterproofing experts understand the importance of a job well done when it comes to keeping your home dry. They use the best materials and because of their experience and training, know the proper techniques for application. Many well-intentioned DIY’ers have made small mistakes that can allow water to enter your home over time and then turn into even bigger problems. The experts know what details to look for with their work and ensure that your job is done correctly the first time. Our team at Aqua-Guard prides itself on superior craftsmanship and quality work.
Do not neglect to account for the personal time and energy DIY waterproofing entails. Professionals do not have to waste time researching and learning the best methods then finding the right materials. Waterproofing experts are called experts for a reason! Trusting your waterproofing work to experts will save you time, sweat, and energy!
Professional Waterproofing Will Cost Less in the Long Run
Yes, your DIY solution may cost less and stop the water…for now, but poor waterproofing will end up costing you more money over time as you have to repeat the work and pay for repairs and damages caused by incoming water. If water damage is not properly addressed and then affects your home’s foundation, it can cost $12,000 or more to have the foundation repaired on top of the water damage and waterproofing costs. Have the professionals do it right the first time and rest well knowing your home is dry.
Waterproofing Experts Warranty Their Work
Our experts at Aqua-Guard offer a “Life of the Structure Guarantee.” This means that whatever waterproofing work we perform is guaranteed for as long as the structure is standing. We have seen many DIY jobs fail over time (and often much sooner than anticipated) Using waterproofing experts to solve your water problems carries the promise that the work is done right and should something go wrong, you have help to quickly remedy the problem without more out of pocket expenses. You cannot beat that value with any DIY job. We also offer free estimates before work is ever begun!
Waterproofing Experts Attack All Areas Water Enters Your Home
There are 5 main areas that water can penetrate your basement. While many homeowners may be successful at repairing one way, they may not even be aware of the other ways. Water will follow the path of least resistance and if that means entering your home, it will! Waterproofing experts are the key to stopping water from entering your basement at every opportunity.
Crawlspaces, much like basements, have unique needs that need to be addressed in order for them to be properly waterproofed. For many years, the solution to keeping your crawlspace dry was thought to be venting. We have since learned that this is no longer the best way. The collision of warm and cooler air between the outside creates a humid environment that is detrimental to your support beams, plumbing, and ductwork. Instead, we now aim to seal off the crawlspace from the outside elements. The waterproofing experts at Aqua-Guard implement a system that intercepts groundwater before it ever reaches your crawlspace. This is the best possible scenario for crawlspace waterproofing.
Safety, Safety, Safety
Waterproofing is a dangerous job. Not only are you working in tight crawlspace or basement conditions, but you are combining water, electricity, and adjustments to the very foundation of your home. This is nothing to make light of! Professional waterproofers understand the dangers associated with waterproofing and also carry the proper licensing and insurance to make sure the job is done right!
