Winter Waterproofing: What you need to know

Friday, February 5th, 2021 by Elizabeth Anderson


If you noticed water in your basement last year, there's a good chance you'll see it again this year. If you've been putting off waterproofing, here are a few reasons why winter might be the best time to do it.

1. Shorter Wait Times

With the ground being frozen and no rain, concerns of a wet basement tend to fall from the forefront of people's minds. This means a slow season for installers. By scheduling your project while the snow is on the ground, you can save weeks of waiting for an installation date.

2. No Exterior Digging Required

Unlike many other waterproofing companies, we waterproof from inside your home, not outside. We don't dig up the ground around your home so we don't have to wait for a thaw to work. If we need to dig for a sump pump discharge, we will come back in the spring if needed.

3. Be Prepared for Melt Off

Spring in Buffalo can bring crazy weather, including heavy rains and snow. When you waterproof in the winter, you will be ready for the water come spring.

All this applies to crawl space waterproofing too! Don't wait, call today!
