The threat of water in the basement of your Northern Virginia home is real to many homeowners and potential homeowners. Water in your basement not only can lead to mold and mildew growth which can lead to health problems for everyone in the home, but it also can be potentially harmful to the structure of the home. With a wet basement comes the worries of damaged possessions and space that becomes unusable because of the smell and damp conditions. This is where dry basement certification comes into play.
When purchasing a home, or even refinancing a current mortgage, in the Northern Virginia area, your home mortgage lender may require the completion of a dry basement certification as a condition of the mortgage. The lender simply wants to ensure the property they agree to finance does not have a leaky basement that can lead to significant problems as previously discussed.
The dry basement professionals at Basement Waterproofing Nationwide are able to provide the dry basement certification for you and your lender after completing the inspection process. Rather than simply walking through looking for signs of water seeping in through the basement walls, we take it a step further and thoroughly inspect all aspects of the basement for signs of water.
Upon completing the inspection of your Northern Virginia basement, we will determine whether or not your basement qualifies for dry basement certification. Assuming all aspects check-out, we will provide you with the dry basement certification as requested by the mortgage lender. If problems are found, we can help you determine the best way to address the issue and ultimately provide the dry basement certification.
