Since 1978, Popham has been waterproofing area homes and businesses. Waterproofing is a preventative maintenance method that diverts or stops water seepage. Wet basements can cause structural damage, mold, mildew, rot, window condensation, musty air smell, trapped gasses and contaminants, allergies and respiratory problems, termites, roaches, and other pests, humidity added throughout the house, increased energy costs to heat damp air. Water damage can be prevented with proper waterproofing. Every dollar invested in waterproofing saves approximately eight dollars in rebuilding or retrofitting and is as important to the finished product as its design and foundation.
