Waterproofing is essential for every home. Your family uses water every day to shower, wash the dishes and even do the laundry. You want to be able to do these things without fear that any spilled water will damage the internal structure of the house. Of course, just like everything else waterproofing can malfunction or simply become too old so that it no longer fulfills its purpose. If this happens then it is important you recognize the warning signs before it becomes a major problem.
