Poor Foundation Drainage
Overflowing gutters, clogged gutters, poor drainage grading and ineffective yard grading contribute to a wet basement. Then the water will drain next to your basement foundation, instead of away from it – then basement leaking begins.

Identifying & Repairing Basement Issues Related To Poor Foundation Drainage and Grading
Why Does Foundation Drainage Matter?
If your foundation drainage isn’t draining the water away from your foundation – it is not working. As the water flows next to your basement foundation it can create a structural problem or a wet basement.
And as the water builds up against your basement foundation, hydrostatic pressure will find a way to push it into your basement. And a wet basement creates the perfect environment for mold growth, high electric bills, wet drywall, wet carpet, concrete spalling and high indoor humidity.
