Many people see home improvement projects like repairing foundation problems to be an exclusively summertime project. Once the weather cools down, home repairs are the last thing on everyone’s mind, especially when it comes to something like getting a foundation sealing or basement waterproofing done.
However, there are actually more reasons to get your home’s structure looked at during the winter than you think — and some of them might even surprise you.
If the idea of sealing foundation leaks during the winter sounds preposterous to you, it may be time to look at these three key advantages of investing in a foundation sealing or basement waterproofing while it’s still wintertime:
Foundation repair contractors are more available during the winter
For most home repair companies, the winter is the off season — meaning they get less business during these months. Because of this, it’s a great idea to seek out a foundation repair company when it’s winter, because they will have a more open availability and will be able to come to your house sooner. Reduced wait times are reason enough to get your foundation repaired or sealed during the winter.
Wintertime foundation sealings often come with discounts
As stated before, most foundation repair companies are currently in their off season. In many cases, these companies and contractors will offer special discounts to customers who come to them during the winter months. What better way to pay a little less to get your foundation sealed?
By sealing your foundation now, you can prevent against springtime damage
Water damage isn’t really a threat to your home’s foundation when snow is on the ground — but as soon as all the snow melts in the spring, this excess groundwater will pose a threat to your foundation. To prevent against this damage from taking place, having your foundation preventatively sealed during the winter is vital.
