It's Never too Early to Plan Ahead: Taking Advantage of Interior Waterproofing Opportunities During Cold Weather Months

Posted

Emecole Metro's crawl space and foundation drainage product solutions were featured in the most recent version of Currents, the official publication of our parent company, Metropolitan Industries.

There’s a time and a place for everything, even when it comes to making repairs and improvements to a building or structure. Sure, the occasional emergency may dictate the time and place but, if you have a say in the matter, there are ideal times to get things done. For example, foundation and crawl space work benefits from keeping an eye on the seasons. 

While we still have a few weeks of summer to go, those within the water industry know it’s never too early to plan ahead, especially when the amount of work we encounter is likely to revolve around the weather. 

In the fall and early winter months, there is often less water near the foundation while the temperature and humidity in crawl spaces tends to drop. Decreased water makes it easier to install drainage and encapsulation or pre-finishing materials, while lower temperatures mean the work to be done is more bearable. With a variety of waterproofing and encapsulation jobs in demand, you can rest easy knowing you have a wide selection of premium product solutions available at your disposal via our sub-brand, Emecole Metro.
