A flooded basement is nobody’s friend.
Moisture is the biggest culprit to the longevity of your home. In the form of rainwater and ground seepage, it can ruin foundations, masonry and cement and siding. Excess moisture can also create serious mold problems, and is quite common in basements and crawlspaces. Sealing out moisture and waterproofing your home is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your home.
