Causes of Basement Damage in Northern Virginia
The aforementioned problem signs might have a wide variety of sources. However, the diverse and problematic clay and silty soil under and surrounding your Northern Virginia home is the most typical cause of basement troubles. The dirt that was removed during the construction of your home is restored when the basement walls are built. The clay bowl effect and the establishment of an artificial water table might result from oversaturating this loose soil. Furthermore, basement walls may crack, bow, and leak as a result of the hydrostatic pressure that the water in the soil creates. Additionally, interior elements like a faulty sump pump, leaking water heater, or leaking plumbing pipe could be to blame.
