Are you planning to sell your home anytime soon? But, is the dampness of the rooms and water seepage marks on the walls, not really impressing or attracting any buyers? Well, that’s pretty obvious! Who would want to invest in a house that is damp? A damp house is not just going to make your rooms look unappealing, but the person who would buy it in future might also suffer from some serious health issues such as asthma, allergies, eczema, cough and cold, and much more. Hence, before selling your house, it’ll be best if you spend a little money on making your home damp-proof so that you can attract more and more buyers.
Now, before you start with your “mission waterproofing”, the first and foremost thing that you need to do is look for the area that is the root cause of this issue. Well generally, it’s either the roof or the bathroom that causes dampness and gives the molds and mildews a chance to grow over the walls of your house. Sounds tacky, isn’t it? Trust me, it looks tacky as well. So, find the root cause and start working on it. But yes, there’s one suggestion for you, don’t use any DIY kit to waterproof your home. Instead, hire a company that excels in doing so.
How to Find a Waterproofing Company?
What? Don’t know any company that can help you with roof and bathroom waterproofing in Melbourne? Worry not! Here are some ways in which you can definitely come across a couple of companies that can waterproof your mansion. Take a look.
- Take recommendations: Do you know any friend, neighbor, colleague or relative, who has recently waterproofed their home? If yes, then contact them and ask them to give you the details of the company that they had hired.
- Browse the internet: In case, none of your close ones could suggest you a reputed waterproofing company, then all you can do is browse the internet and look for companies that can waterproof your home (especially the damp prone areas like bathroom and roof).
If you follow these two ways, I’m sure you will come across numerous companies that provide this particular service. However, your job isn’t done as yet! Now, the next thing that you need to do is, shortlist a few companies and then start comparing them. The main things that you need to compare include:
1> Experience: The first thing that you need to do before you choose any particular company is comparing their experience. The reason why I’m asking you to do so is because it will help you choose the one which has the maximum years of experience in this field.
Additional Tip: Always try to choose a company that has at least 5 years of experience. Choosing a startup company is a big “no-no”.
2> Reputation: The next thing that you need to compare is their reputation in the market. Wondering, how will you do that? Well, go through the websites of all the companies that you have shortlisted and check their testimonials. And then, choose the one which has received the maximum number of positive feedbacks from their previous customers.
In case, you don’t find any testimonial on their websites (which is a rare case), then you can check and compare their online ratings. And yes, needless to say, choose the one that has received the maximum number of stars/ratings.
3> Quotation: Last but not the least, compare their quotations. Thinking, why you need to do this? Well, comparing the quotes is absolutely essential so that you can choose the one that is charging an affordable amount for waterproofing your house.
Now that you know how to find a company and what to compare, in order to choose the best among the rest, what are you waiting for? Start your hunt now!
