A wet basement can be caused by surface water and ground water
- Every year snow melts and rain falls while gravity pulls this moisture deeper into the frost line
- Because this seepage is constantly moving beneath the frost line, you should expect water related problems year round.
- As this water approaches your home it collects in the loosely packed soil that is pressing against your foundation.
- As the water level continues to raise the weight of the water causes pressure to build (Hydrostatic Pressure).
- This pressure forces water into settlement cracks in your home’s foundation and sooner or later, you get a wet basement.
