Why Basement Leaks?
Water leakage is caused by several factors. The drain tile that is installed on most new homes may become clogged with silt and settlement, causing it to fail. The parging done on the outside of the home may have deteriorated and is allowing water to enter the foundation. A professional inspector is trained to notice these signs and determine the exact reason you are seeing the water.
How serious is my water problem?
Unfortunately, the water you see in your basement is the least of the problem. This water will evaporate into the air eventually. The water that is not escaping through the foundation wall is the source of trouble. This water will cause lower wall deterioration, cracks, bulges in walls, efflorescence, and many other concerns.
How can I tell where the water is coming from?
Water can enter a foundation through several different ways. The most common are wall cracks or leakage from the cove area (where the floor and the wall meet). This, simply put, is a natural seam in which the water can most easily penetrate your foundation. Another common source is hydrostatic pressure. This will cause water to penetrate through cracks in your floor. Several other sources are common, though not as easily noticeable.
