Plumbing Failures and Leaks Can Wreck Your Basement

Monday, August 30th, 2021 by Kristen Owenby


What’s the most common claim paid out by insurance companies?

Most anything related to water damage!

Plumbing failure destroys carpet, drywall, appliances, storage items, and more. It’s impossible  to prevent every leak over the course of your time in a home, but there are some things you can do to mitigate the impact if a leak does happen.

Master Services recommends installing:

  1. A dependable sump pump system. A sump pump will provide peace of mind to homeowners that their basement will be protected during flooding.
  2. A perimeter drainage system. A drainage system works alongside a sump pump to capture and ferry water safely outside of the home.
  3. A water vapor barrier. A vapor barrier protects vulnerable drywall from water damage, including rot and mold.  

 

Water gets inside basements through floor cracks, wall cracks, stairways, leaky basement windows, and plumbing failures. With so many entry points, countermeasures will take the worry out of basement waterproofing.
