Waterproofing a basement can be a costly, but necessary, investment. We asked highly rated basement waterproofing companies to provide their best advice.

If your home includes dated or damaged light fixtures, it may be time to replace them. An experienced homeowner who knows their way around electrical wiring can tackle and complete a simple fixture replacement as a do-it-yourself job in less than an hour.

Better a small cost than a big shock.
