Commercial Waterproofing: Everything You Need to Know

You might not be concerned right now about waterproofing the basement or crawl space of your commercial property, but when you consider the unpredictable nature of weather patterns and that Lexington sits within a watershed of four significant rivers that could easily flood with one bad rain storm, can you afford not to think ahead? It costs far less to waterproof your basement now than to repair it after it's been submerged.

United Structural Systems believes knowledge and support are two of the most important services we can offer our customers. We want to educate you on the benefits and importance of commercial waterproofing, because we believe proactive prevention is better than regretful reaction.

Have you noticed damp walls, condensation on windows and mirrors, or standing water on the floors of your building? Can you see or smell mold or mildew? Do cracks jag their way up the walls? A yes answer to any of these questions indicates water has already seeped into your property and has begun to compromise the foundation of your building. It also means you need to call United Structural Systems right away.

Whether a commercial or residential building, water damage in your basement or crawl space is all the same. The integrity of your foundation becomes compromised, which usually leads to the infiltration and infestation of insects and nasty pests. Mold and mildew growth can create health hazards for your employees, customers, and visiting vendors. If left unattended, the air space in the building can become compromised, which would potentially involve mandatory evacuation and closure of your building, thus a shutdown of your business.

From support beams to foundation walls, water will wreak havoc on your foundation. Mitigating current or potential water problems now can save you thousands of dollars in the future. At United Structural Systems, we are experts in preventing damage from occurring to your foundation, and we know how to repair your foundation if damage has already occurred. Our job is to find a permanent solution to your problem.
