Depending on the circumstance, water can be your best friend or your worst enemy. In the case of its presence within your home’s basement, though, it’s the latter.
LakewoodAlive will host “Knowing Your Home: Waterproofing Basics” on Thursday, November 16, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Deagan’s Kitchen & Bar (14810 Detroit Avenue in Downtown Lakewood). The 16th and final workshop of 2017 for this popular home maintenance educational program will cover a wide range of problem-solving topics pertaining to basement waterproofing.
Led by Steve Allen of Integrity Waterproofing, this workshop aims to equip attendees with best practices for working with a contractor, and with the knowledge to pursue a dry and sound basement.
Workshop attendees will also learn:
- The structure of their foundation
- What causes basement moisture
- What is a “normal” amount of moisture
- What is considered a “wet basement”
- How to remedy damp and wet basements
- The differences between interior “waterproofing” and traditional dig-down waterproofing
