Beyond the price of your mortgage and property taxes, being a homeowner is an expensive proposition. If you’re not paying to buy a new dishwasher, hiring a repairman to clean out the gutters, paying a plumber to fix a running toilet…there’s always something. In order to save money, it may be tempting to try tending to problems around the house on your own. How hard can it be? You watch HGTV, there’s a Home Depot around the corner…sounds perfect until you double your expense costs breaking a copper pipe, or electrocute yourself…
It is always advised to get a professional to come look at them because they have more expertise and skill. Simply being a professional is not enough, though – you need the right professional. Just like you wouldn’t want a dentist to perform open-heart surgery, you don’t want the wrong kind of specialist dealing with your issue.
Should you ever need help with a leaky basement, you should call a wet basement specialist, not a plumber. Here’s why:
If the basement is flooded due to a leakage in a pipe or coming somewhere from the bathroom, then this can be tended to by a plumber. However most instances of wet basement problems are due to issues like cracked basement walls and floors, condensation, clogged drainage tile, and poor soil drainage – not leaky pipes.
Before making the call, make sure the contractor you are about to hire is reputed and been around for a while. Nothing guarantees better results than experience.
