Capillary veins are responsible for many wet basement problems

  • Rainwater gets pulled deeper into the ground by seepage and gravity.

  • As gravity pulls the ground water deeper into the soil, it moves sideways following the slope of the surrounding areas.

  • Top soil will absorb some of the water but as rain continues to fall the absorbent layers become even more saturated.

  • The water begins to follow the underground ‘paths of least resistance’ called Capillary Veins

A wet basement can’t be fixed with “waterproofing” paint

  • When you paint the inside of your wet basement wall, you can slow down moisture, but not water.

  • You are not eliminating the water from entering the cement block wall from outside and causing your wet basement.

  • You can literally put on 10-20-100 coats of paint, but it will never hold the water back.

  • Once the hydrostatic pressure builds up the water will force itself through at some point.

  • Paint does not prevent a wet basement, it’s just paint, so pick a nice color
