A while back, I posted about our basement waterproofing “adventure.” Basically, we purchased an older foreclosure home with basement flooding issues and immediately had to pay big bucks to have it waterproofed right after we moved in. Anyone who has gone through this knows that it is a very expensive project. I was recently contacted by Waterproof.com, and they presented a much less expensive option for basement waterproofing. The SquidGee Dry system is a “do-it-yourself” basement waterproofing option that costs a fraction of the price of hiring a contractor to install a drain system. This means no jackhammers, trenching or digging.
The Squidgee Dry baseboard channel and SealOnce adhesive bonds watertight and lasts for years. This is a good fit for basements leaking water through the joint where the floor and walls meet. It collects and manages seeping water and routes it to a sump pump or floor drain. I highly recommend checking out their site and doing some research to see if this option might be a good solution for your specific problem. Our basement is waterproofed now, thank goodness, but I wanted to share this resource with you in case waterproofing is ever an issue you have to deal with in your home and you aren’t in a position to pay a contractor to do expensive repairs. To find out how much this system would cost for your home, check out their cost calculator tool.
Ultimately, if your home has a basement, then keeping it dry is an absolute must. No one wants a damp, mold infested space. Waterproofing is necessary to make your basement a livable space and a safe environment for your family. We would love to finish our basement eventually and create a fun hangout down there, but we knew we couldn’t even consider doing that until we waterproofed the space to protect our investment.
