Leaking basements can cause a lot of problems, and make your life very difficult. From damaged property, to dangerous mold and mildew, when water enters into your basement or crawl space it can cause thousands of dollars in repairs and an adverse environment for the health of your family.
Leaking basements lead to basement flooding. Flooding happens during heavy rains or snow as the soil around your foundation becomes saturated with water, and creeps in through breeches in the concrete of your home's foundation. As soils expand and contract, it creates fractures in the concrete, allowing moisture to enter. Once this happens, it is very difficult to keep the space under your house dry and free of mildew and mold without the installation of a waterproofing system.
