What Causes Basement Flooding, And How To Prevent It

When your home was built, the contractors designing it never meant for the basement to be a damp, musty, flooding space. But as time and the forces of nature continue to bear down on your foundation, it’s bound to leak sooner or later.

Basement flooding is a problem that can be solved quickly (and effectively), provided that you know what you’re up against.
