Now that I don’t have a basement, I miss the storage space — but I don’t miss the issues with water. Water can destroy appliances, furniture, carpet, drywall, and anything else in its path, and most repairs that require a contractor will run into the thousands of dollars. I found this Basement Waterproofing Kit in the back of a magazine and was wondering if it’s worth its salt.
The Basement Waterproofing Kits offered by Waterproof.com LLC surround the inner perimeter of your basement and won’t let seeping water get past — instead the water flows along channels to a drain or sump. You secure the sections to the floor with SquidGee SealOnce adhesive. It makes sense to me, but I’d probably want to talk to some real owners before I glued a bunch of stuff to my basement floor.
Straight 4-1/2′ sections are $12, corners are about $7, and SquidGee is $7.
