Wet basement waterproofing with Life-of-House warranty
Plainsboro Township is located in Middlesex County, N.J. The Township is 12.2 square miles and home to 22,999 residents (U.S. Census 2010).
Plainsboro was incorporated by an Act of the New Jersey State Legislature in 1919. The land had been part of South Brunswick and Cranbury Townships. The township includes Plainsboro Center and Princeton Meadows.
The area was Lenape Indian land and later established by Dutch settlers. A large dairy industry grew in the late 1800’s and the famous Elsie the Cow has her tomb in Plainsboro.
Fix your wet basement now to save thousands later
When a house is under contract for sale, the buyer will usually retain the services of a home inspection company to report on the overall condition of the house.
The home inspection is a comprehensive exam of the building from roof to basement and everything in between.
If there was ever a wet basement problem the Home Inspector will find it.
If you want the house to be easier to show and thus easier to sell, you should have the wet basement made dry and healthy before the house is shown.
A wet basement can’t be fixed with “waterproofing” paint
When you paint the inside of your wet basement wall, you can slow down moisture, but not water.
You are not eliminating the water from entering the cement block wall from outside and causing your wet basement.
You can literally put on 10-20-100 coats of paint, but it will never hold the water back.
Once the hydrostatic pressure builds up the water will force itself through at some point.
Paint does not prevent a wet basement, it’s just paint, so pick a nice color.
