How your basement gets flooded


Basement Waterproofing is the obvious solutions to a leaking basement. But how does a basement become leaky? To answer this you need to understand what water looks for. It looks for the path of least resistance. This is a problem. This is a problem because the path of least resistance is found right beside your basement foundation. The reason this is is because when the house is built a hole is dug. In this hole the footing is laid and then the foundation is laid ontop. This leaves a gap between the ground and the foundation. This gap is filled with loose backfill which creates an area where water can collect because there is less resistance there then in the ground just beside the filled gap.  Water can seep into cracks formed into the foundation and over years of freezing and thawing, eventually the cracks grow and grow until they break through the other side allow water to seep into your basement.

After the first signs of a leaking basement it’s best to call a basement waterproofing expert. There are a lot out there but theres alot that arn’t exactly qualified for the job they may suggest you pay them to do. a Leak can be a serious problem so its best you act quicky but effectively. Do a bit of homework on some companies your interested in to make sure their qualified.

You can find out if the basement waterproofing contractor is right for you by checking their BBB rating, checking their website and the website of their competitors, and review sites. Check for the warning signs that they arn’t qualified or the signs that they are.

Thanks for reasing and good luck with your basement waterproofing experience.
