Causes of a Wet Basement
As a concerned homeowner, you may be wondering what caused your basement to leak in the first place. The exact cause can only be determined by a basement waterproofing expert, of course, but there are typical reasons for a leak. These include foundation wall cracks, clogged or broken downspouts, and poor drainage. (See the illustration below for additional causes.)
Think of it this way: When your home was built, a hole had to be created to accommodate the basement. The ground never completely recovered from the creation of this hole, so whenever it becomes saturated, water will always travel towards it. This water then creates pressure around your basement walls and floors, (hydrostatic pressure) which eventually causes seepage at any cracks, joints, or openings. This problem is so common, in fact, that the National Association of Realtors states that 85% of all homes in America have wet basements at some point.
