Avoiding Masonry Damage
If you have masonry in your foundation, sidewalks, or anywhere else throughout your lower levels, protecting it from water is important! Brickwork and mortar suck up water very easily and, once it does, your masonry will start to deteriorate and break down. The longer this goes on, the worse things will get! And if temps drop, the freeze/thaw cycle will occur, putting even more stress and strain on your exterior parts.
Keeping Your Foundation Sturdy
Whether your foundation is made of masonry or something else, it needs to remain protected. If water is allowed to pool up near it, cracks and other damage will occur, causing the entire structure to weaken. This could lead to some serious issues and it puts your home and family at risk, too. In time, if the damages get too extreme, your entire house may even collapse!
When it comes to the safety and soundness of your home, you don’t have room to take chances. Call us in, so that we can get things done right for you! We think of every step that needs to be taken so that you don’t have to worry about a thing. When you work with Oosting Construction, you work with the best!
Mold, Mildew, Fungus, & More
One of the biggest reasons mold forms is because of excess moisture. Mold and mildew can be a dangerous thing, causing illness and medical issues that take their toll on the well being of loved ones. If family members have asthma or allergies, they’ll be even worse off!
Along with this, wet wood could rot and attract pests, such as termites, and we know no one wants to deal with the hassle and stress of removing those! On top of everything else, too much extra water easily ruins the look and aesthetic of any yard space. If you’ve spent time, money, and effort making your home’s exterior look great, then investing in proper drainage is the right move to make. Don’t let all of that hard work go to waste.
