  • Do You Have Leaks In Your Basement?

    [caption id="attachment_6067" align="alignleft" width="172" caption="Fixing Basement Leaks"]Leaks[/caption]

    If you have a leaking problem in your basement, take a look at this helpful tutorial on why this is happening and how to fix it. Looking for a leak repair company in Cleveland? Call Reilly Painting, where we have years of experience and knowledge dealing with these problems.

    While leaks through roofs, pipes and basements are constant concerns, a wet, leaking basement always ranked highest as the home improvement problem most likely to send buyers running for the nearest open house.

    Whether you are a buyer, seller or owner of a home, wet basements are always a concern. Not only is a wet basement unusable, flooded foundations can be seriously weakened and toxic mold--the newest threat to residential indoor air quality--can fester faster when an ample supply of water lies just underfoot.

    The good news about these unplanned indoor pools is this: while wet basements are often thought of as one of life's biggest home repair headaches, they are generally easy and inexpensive to fix. Yes, that's right--easy and inexpensive!

    The wrong way to waterproof a wet basement.

    Ask 10 people how to fix a wet basement and you're likely to get answers that include use of jackhammers to break up basement floors, backhoes to dig out dirt from foundation walls, sump pumps that have to be wired and plumbed, and other such drastic and expensive measures.
