Get More Out of Your Home by Waterproofing Your Wet Basement

A great way for you to bulk up your home’s value is to increase the square footage. Doing this without adding expensive additions outright can be tough. But an easy solution is simply to invest in waterproofing your basement to increase livable space.

By waterproofing and sealing the foundation, this immediately adds livable floorspace and provides you and your family with that cozy basement living space you’ve always wanted. Use it as a new bedroom, gameroom, man cave, or bar for parties. Waterproofing a basement’s foundation increases both the aesthetic value and actual value of your home.

There are even great health benefits to waterproofing your basement, as a waterproofed space will not attract and grow mold like a non-secured basement will.

Why You Should Invest in IPE Deck Wood

Within the past ten years, the NYC fire dept. adopted new fire procedures based on the IFC, or International Fire Code.

This includes heightened protections for incidents where houses on fire cause surrounding homes to catch on fire as well. This includes new sprinkler systems and non combustable materials for decks that run between houses.

IPE hardwood is the perfect deck wood for this new era of precaution as it is made of Ironwood, which is resistant to fire, moisture, insects and can be used without preservatives or ground treatments. It is rated in the same class as steel and concrete.

IPE hardwood is also a cost-saver, as the material allows for longer lasting decks.
