Identifying & Repairing Basement Issues Related To Dampness, Cracks, and Leaking
Why Do I Have Leaking Basement Walls?
Leaking basement walls are caused by hydrostatic pressure – which is the force of the water against your basement foundation. Leaky basement walls can be caused by the water building up on the outside of your foundation and underground water.
Water Against Your FoundationAs water collects in the back-fill surrounding your foundation, the hydrostatic pressure builds up, pressing against your foundation. The continued pressure has to go somewhere – and if there’s a crack in your foundation then it’s into your basement.
Poured Concrete Walls
If you have a poured concrete foundation then the hydrostatic pressure can create cracks in the basement walls. These cracks will let the water in. If you notice basement wall cracks then consult with a foundation repair specialist. These cracks could be a sign that there’s a structural problem with your basement foundation.
Underground WaterIf your home is built on an underground stream or near an underground water source, the water can find its way into your basement through crumbling mortar or concrete cracks.
Can I Fix My Leaky Basement Walls?
Don’t assume that a patch or epoxy will fix your leaky basement walls.
And if you have a basement wall crack, then you could have other problems that need to be fixed before you think about waterproofing your basement.
