What Causes a Leaky Basement
- A leaky basement is usually the result of groundwater finding its way through the seams and cracks of your foundation or even slowly seeping through the porous texture of your concrete walls. Many reasons can contribute to a previously dry basement becoming a leaking basement. The biggest contributors are time and the forces of nature. When pressure builds in the groundwater surrounding a home due to an abnormal amount of rain or snowmelt, it can create hydrostatic or lateral pressure that forces the water moisture through previously unexploited conduits in the foundation. Additionally, if your home has a blocked or failing drain tile system the water that was previously drained away from your foundation now has to find another avenue. Finally, even the best foundations develop cracks over time and begin to let rain water, groundwater, and any other type of moisture into your basement or crawl space.
How Can A Leaky Basement Be Fixed
- Luckily, leaky basements don't have to be leaky forever. There are many techniques and solutions for making a basement waterproof again. The trick is identifying all the necessary problems that need to be solved. A coat of sealant may make a difference for a short time, but if the pressure hasn't been alleviated or if the groundwater hasn't been diverted then the forces of nature and time will soon drive water back into your basement.
