Like most things, concrete is vulnerable to water. This is because concrete is not waterproof by itself, and requires a coating to make it waterproof. Over the years exposure to water can lead to a lot of things that can cause the concrete to become weak and even collapse under the weight of what it supports, as well as its own weight. Getting your concrete properly waterproofed by CRC Concrete Raising and Repair will not only help prolong the life of your concrete, but help protect your home with concrete waterproofing in Buffalo Grove.
Concrete Maintenance Buffalo Grove
The biggest reason to waterproof your concrete is to prolong its life. Water can get into concrete during the fall months and when winter hits, that water will expand when it freezes and put stress on your concrete. This is why proper concrete waterproofing is important, because it keeps the water out of the pores of your concrete. Water that enters concrete and freezes can weaken the structural integrity leading to cracks and even crumbling. When this is on a surface like a driveway or walkway it can be a real inconvenience as it causes uneven surfaces, but for things like a foundation it can be a real danger, as it can lead to the foundation collapsing and then the house.
Water water everywhere
Besides the damage that water can cause to the concrete, it can get through the concrete itself. This leads to wet or damp areas like basements and can lead to more problems than just water in the basement. The excess water can lead to mold and mildew growth and that can lead to health problems and more. Simply waterproofing your basement concrete will prevent this and improve the quality of the air you breath in your home.
