Are you enjoying the winter? Did you make it through the holidays with family and friends? With the joy of the season, you probably didn’t think about that wet basement that plagued your existence last spring and summer: the damp musty smell, the soaking wet carpet, the little black hints of mold appearing on otherwise pristine walls? After all, you did a good job of staying on top of it, sharing your wet-vac sessions with the rest of the family. Eventually, by the end of summer you could shut down the fans, close the windows, and re-lay the carpet.

Installing Waterproofing Systems During Missouri Winters

Well, spring is just around the corner and with spring comes melting, raining, even flooding. Are you ready to deal once again with that miserable wet St. Louis basement? It may surprise you, but this is actually a great time of year to get the job done. Since the ground is the driest in the winter and the water table is low, installation of waterproofing systems becomes easier. Also, winter is off-season for contractors, so they may have more availability and may even discount their services.
