The causes of a wet basement in Illinois & Missouri

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

The weight of the water in the soil around the foundation exerts pressure, forcing the water through cracks, gaps, holes, and around windows leading into the basement.
