Causes of a Wet Basement

Like any caring homeowner, you most likely want to know what was responsible for the leak in your basement. The precise cause of the leak only be determined by a waterproofing professional, but there are numerous reasons for a leak. Some of the more common reasons for basement leaks include cracks, poor drainage and clogged or broken downspouts. (Refer to the illustration below for more causes.)

Look at it this way: When your home was first built, a hole was made for the basement. The ground never fully recovered from the trauma caused by the hole, so whenever it is filled with moisture, water travels towards it. Pressure from the water builds up around the walls and floors of your basement, something known as hydrostatic pressure, eventually causing seepage at any cracks, opening or joints in your basement. This is an extremely common problem, and the National Association of Realtors states that 85% of all homes in America have wet basements at some point.
