Basement Drainage and Wet Basement Repair

Wet basements are often caused by:

  • Poor original workmanship
  • A structure that has settled, resulting in cracks in the walls and/or floors
  • Exterior water pressure (i.e., hydrostatic pressure) forcing water through the walls
  • Leaking windows and doors
  • Lack of maintenance of existing drains

Key to preventing and repairing a wet basement is to carefully assess the surface/subsurface drainage, and other factors, such as:

  • Soil surface sloping towards the home, including yard, driveways, etc.
  • Overly porous soils adjacent to the foundation
  • Animal holes near or under the foundation
  • Settling next to the foundation or under porches (due to poor fill/backfill practices)
  • No downspouting or downspouts that do not direct water away from the home
  • No footer tiles
  • Broken, collapsed, or plugged footer tiles
  • Tree roots
