Leaky Basement Repair

When water has the chance to sit in the soil and accumulate outside of a home, the soil begins to expand, putting immense pressure on the outer walls. This can create cracks, which can eventually lead to entry points for basement water. Wall leaks are easy entry ways for water to enter the lower level of a home, so they should be treated right away. There are ways that you can repair wall leaks on your own. However, having a professional come in and take care of it greatly decreases the chance of failure.

There are a few ways to prevent leaks if your basement is not experiencing them yet. Some of these ways are:

  • Make sure to keep all gutters clean and in proper working order. When gutters get clogged, water can run off the sides landing near the home and into the soil, creating all kinds of basement wall problems. Make sure that gutters are not pinched and that water is flowing at a safe distance from the home.
  • Make sure the soil near your home is slopped away. It should be at a pitch of 1/4 per foot so that any water can drain into the yard. This can be done by simply adding soil and raking it until it is smooth with the highest point being at the house.
  • Trees with aggressive roots should not be very close to the home. These kinds of trees should be at least twenty feet away from the home to avoid any basement wall problems.

If your home is facing wall leaks even with preventatives in place, call Basement Waterproofing And Foundation Repair to handle any kind of situation. There are many times where these situations cannot be avoided depending on where your home is located or the grade of earth it is built on, so basement waterproofing is a great way to avoid any basement wall problems.
