Basement flooding is a major problem if left unchecked, but it can actually be solved quickly and effectively most of the time. Calling a professional can alleviate the stress and worry and protect your investment. If a basement floods once, and you do nothing about it, it will flood again, and again.
There are multiple options for fixing a basement to withstand flooding. Some of the solutions are as simple as adding a drain along the joist where the walls meet the floor. This drain directs water to a sump pump and out of your house. There are multiple inventions that can even allow drainage while keeping all moisture away from any finished walling or finished flooring.
Many home loans lenders, like the VA backed home loan lenders, rarely allow buyers to purchase a home with evidence of basement flooding. Sellers should take heed of this, because having a dry basement will open up the buying pool and drastically increase the value of their homes.
