The need for basement waterproofing is caused by a slow percolation rate
How does percolation occur? Water moves downward through openings in the soil to replenish aquifers under the ground.
A percolation test, commonly called a perc test, is a test to determine the absorption rate of soil.
A percolation test done before a home is built will determine if land will drain properly and whether a basement will flood.
In general, sandy soil will have a quicker percolation than soil with a high concentration of clay.
Here in New Jersey, we have a high content of clay in the soil of most inland areas.

When a house is under contract for sale, the buyer will usually retain the services of a home inspection company to report on the overall condition of the house.
The home inspection is a comprehensive exam of the building from roof to basement and everything in between.
If there was ever a wet basement problem the Home Inspector will find it.
If you want the house to be easier to sell, you should have the wet basement made dry and healthy before the house is shown.
