basement leaks Erie PA

When was the last time you looked at your basement? You may have noticed cracks, cobwebs, and other unsightly things. You may not have known, however, that you should be keeping an eye out for leaks.

Unchecked, basement leaks can wreak havoc on your basement. Your basement may sustain significant water damage, particularly in areas that are out of the way and difficult to see. The worst-case scenario would be full-blown seepage. To avoid wet basement repair, you’ll need to take a proactive approach with basement waterproofing.

You may be asking yourself, “What causes a leaky basement?” Read on to learn the most common reasons why your basement might leak. If you suspect your basement has one or more of these issues, be sure to call a basement waterproofing company as soon as possible.

1. GUTTER PROBLEMS

Your gutter’s conditions determine the risk of your basement leaking or flooding. When your gutter clogs, rainwater seeps and drains via gravity, meaning it will naturally collect in the lowest structural points of your home. Naturally, none of your home’s structural points are lower than your basement.

A sign that your gutter is to blame for your leaky basement is the presence of debris. The debris may lead to clogging, causing water to overflow and seep into the cracks of your basement.

2. CRACKS ON YOUR FOUNDATIONS

Cracks on your basement walls will inevitably result in leaks. Water from various sources can seep into the cracks of your basement. When this happens, water drains outside the crack. By the time you notice it, it will likely be too late.

Basement waterproofing takes care of this issue. If you notice cracks, be sure to contact a basement specialist to provide excellent sealant and foundation repair for your basement walls.

3. POORLY SEALED WALLS

Another common reason for leaky basements is poor sealing. Sealing provides an added layer of protection from groundwater and your basement’s walls.

It is not enough that your basement has well-anchored and well-designed walls. Regardless of how the surface appears, the layers of your basement wall need to have the right adhesives and waterproofing sealants to keep water out properly.

4. A CLOGGED SEWAGE SYSTEM

Heavy rainstorms often cause sewer system clogging due to the debris they move around. If this is the case, your sewage system may not be able to drain properly, allowing water to seep into your basement.

Sewer backflow is a common cause of basement leaks. Along with wet basement repair, regular inspections of the sewage system and its surrounding areas are necessary.
