If you own a home, you should be worried about Radon. I don’t mean to scare you, but Radon is incredibly dangerous. Radon is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas found in many parts of the country and is harmful to your health. Though it is invisible, it is far from harmless. Radon is actually a leading cause of lung cancer, even for non-smokers! For smokers, it’s even worse. Radon is not something to take lightly and should be handled as quickly as possible.
Finding a quality basement waterproofer isn’t easy. It should be, but it’s not. Waterproofing your basement is an essential part of keeping your home dry and free of water-related damage. The most important part of waterproofing your basement is waterproofing the walls. Basement walls are under constant pressure from outside water due to its placement underground. This hydrostatic pressure pushes up against your basement and, if not protected, water will make its way through your concrete’s pores and into your basement.
Another area of your home that needs waterproofing is a plywood deck. Plywood decks are an integral part of many homes and can be found in all kinds of states. Some decks are immaculate and waterproofed while others…well, they just look awful. Exposed wood is just as bad as exposed concrete. Often, it’s even worse. While concrete will break down over time, a plywood deck will break down much quicker, causing you a headache sooner rather than later. As such, it’s a good idea to protect your deck like any other part of your home.
