The Importance Of Building Waterproofing In South Florida

Despite advances in building construction and high-tech materials, it doesn’t take much to do extensive damage to the structural support or interior of a building. In fact, it could be said that a building is waging a constant battle with the outside elements, and no element presents such a constant threat like ordinary water.

The causes of structural damage are many, but there are a few that are particularly common in warm regions. For instance, moisture that can seep into the interior of the home is a major concern in humid climates like South Florida.

Waterproofing is essentially a process that ensures water can’t penetrate the inside of a building. It involves elements of construction, as well as minor maintenance to maintain results.

Waterproofing is an important but delicate process, and it’s important to bring in experts to provide firsthand knowledge and understanding. Any kind of water damage, whether seepage from rain and flooding or a buildup of humidity, has the potential to cause significant damage to a structure. It sets the stage for mold and mildew development, which is can cause respiratory illnesses.

Water can also erode the very foundation of the building and create hazardous conditions. Wooden buildings are particularly at risk of major structural damage, but water can even deteriorate concrete.

Waterproofing will minimize these risks or eliminate them entirely. A drainage system will direct the flow of water away from your property, and we will identify any sites that are at particular risk of water damage. We also can provide damage evaluation to determine the best options for making structural repairs.
