Basement Waterproofing is one of those jobs you need to do if you're converting a basement. Expanding your living space into your basement can be a great way of making more room for you and your family. In this article, we look at why summer is a good time to think about basement waterproofing.
For any major work when it comes to damp proofing, waterproofing or restoration, you of course need dry weather and a spell of time you can spend outside without worrying about the elements. Easier said than done in the British climate, but summer is likely to be the only chance to add waterproofing to a potential basement conversion.
You Have More Daylight
For many people carrying out basement waterproofing or conversion, they have to fit it in around a busy daytime work schedule and can’t always afford people to work on the property while they’re out. Longer daytime hours in the summer mean you’ll be able to get more jobs done in the evening. More time to work = quicker and cheaper basement conversion and waterproofing.
You’ll Want your Basement for the Winter
There’s nothing better than having somewhere cosy and comfortable in your home to feel settled in for the winter. Basements can provide a fantastic additional living space for your house, and with their inherent insulation characteristics, what better reason to think about basement waterproofing in the summer than the thought of somewhere like this to keep you going through the winter months.
There are so many extra demands on our finances during the winter months. Extra clothing, extra heating bills and the extra cost of fuel all add to many people not having much money during the low season. In summer, less is spent on utilities, so it’s a great time to get outstanding building and renovation work completed.
More daylight, more money and more holidays mean that people generally are happier because they have more time to complete jobs around the house. There’s no point waiting until you’re rushed off your feet to complete renovation and extension work – do it in the middle of the year when the weather’s good and then reap the rewards during the festive season!
