The causes of a wet basement

Did you know you can have water issues in your basement without heavy rains or obvious standing water? It's easy enough to see water coming through a crack in your floor or basement wall, but what's the real cause of your basement water problem?

The Clay Bowl Effect

Excavated soil that's replaced around a completed foundation isn't as dense and tightly packed as undisturbed soil farther away. As a result, water collects in the soil immediately surrounding the house, putting pressure on foundation walls and causing cracks.

Hydrostatic Pressure

As soil around your foundation becomes soaked with moisture, it expands and puts pressure on your foundation. The water will then work its way through any opening available, including cracks and openings around pipes or windows.
