Basement Waterproofing in New York: Protecting Your Wine Collection

Some people are what a short story in Archie Comics call the “nutty collectors” – people who make it a mission to collect every object of a certain kind and stash them somewhere. Many wine collectors do fall into this category and, as eHow contributor David Kingsbury explains, stocking them in your basement poses a challenge.

Investing in wine is a serious business among New Yorkers. The Big Apple does have a number of fine wine storage companies, and classy restaurants have their own stocks of quality wines for the discerning connoisseur. If you’re in the habit of collecting reserved wine and branded liquor for private enjoyment, and house them in your basement, you need the services of New York basement waterproofing specialists to ensure that the location is conducive for tipple storage.

Tried-and-tested Methods for Effective Basement Waterproofing in NJ

New Jerseyans can relate to what Wetzel is saying, as the Garden State is battered by surges and storms, with Hurricane Sandy being the most brutal of them. Several homeowners near the coast may have had some nasty scrapes with badly protected basements. If your house’s basement is in a not-so-good shape, experts at basement waterproofing in NJ like Vulcan Waterproofing can help you create a solution to prevent future basement problems.

Cracks in the basement usually appear when the pressure from the water buildup pries open the wall and floor joints. Wetzel says water buildup can be attributed to shorter downspouts, a flat-sloping lawn, or shrub concentrations that pool the water around them. A temporary solution to this is to set up longer downspouts, and to angle them away from the house and the lawn.
