How much would it cost to waterproof my basement with KC Pier?
Prudent homeowners always assess the costs of a home improvement project before signing a contract. Sometimes, when you have a serious foundation problem, like basement leaks, you may have no choice but to do something, but there are always options. We’d like to discuss a few waterproofing measures, and give you a rough sketch of the costs involved.
How Can KC Pier Help Me Determine the Cost to Waterproof My Basement?
For waterproofing a basement or crawl space, KC Pier likes to offer a variety of options. People obviously value their homes, albeit for different reasons. Whether it’s a lifetime home, a house you want to sell soon, an investment property, or a rental property, everybody has different variables and reasons to waterproof a home.
So, considering all those motivations, KC Pier likes to offer what we call “A,B,C Options.” Here’s the general dynamic:
A. Entry Level Fix – A less-invasive task that gets the job done with a decent warranty.
B. The Hybrid Fix – This option is more extensive than the entry-level fix, but won’t cost as much as the Option C.
C. The “Cadillac” Fix – You can also select more premium and extensive waterproofing methods to make your basement virtually indestructible for a lifetime. This carries the best warranty coverage as well.
Specific Tasks & The Cost to Waterproof My Basement
What do you actually get from these various options?
The “A Option” could involve simple cracks injections, which usually take less than a day to complete, and offer warranty coverage for about one to three years. The “C Option” might be an entire exterior dig-out around the soil. That would entail heavy waterproofing where we remove all the exterior soil around the wall and replace it with gravel (lifetime warranty coverage).
The more serious damages, like bowing walls, will require significant labor as well. Then, we’d need to dig the wall out, push it back to a level position, and waterproof it afterwards. When that happens, it takes multiple days to finish, and has a higher price tag. The good news is that once it’s done, it lasts forever.
Warranty terms vary directly with expenses. As the costs of a project increase, KC Pier offers longer warranty coverage. We have all our products built up to a lifetime warranty depending on what you select.
When in doubt, have us visit your home and assess the situation. This goes for residential homeowners, realtors, or anybody else with a vested interest in securing a property.
Basement Waterproofing Bolsters Home Value
So, there’s little doubt that basement waterproofing can increase your home’s value. There are numerous reasons, but here are a few of the common homeowners motivations.
- It’s a necessity when water damage becomes so severe, threatening to spread to other areas of the home.
- It makes the basement legitimately inhabitable. Once you complete a waterproofing project, you may find that it’s no longer musty or moldy, and could become a suitable bedroom or other living space.
- If you have a fully finished basement, the last thing you want to do is let water come in through the cold joints of the foundation and ruin carpet or flooring.
- Intrusive water creates mold if left unattended. It’s critical to stop this problem before it spreads to the drywall or ruins other materials.
