Causes of Water Leaks in Basements
Once water gets into your basement, bad things can happen if the causes of the leaks are not solved, and there are more than a few reasons why water will seep into your home:
- • Jagged or stair-step wall cracks
- • Floor cracks and upheaval
- • Failed sump pump
- • Soil subsidence or settlement
- • Leaks from indoor plumbing
The expansive soil that surrounds the concrete foundation and basement walls of your home collects water and expands in the wet months, then shrinks in the dry months. That movement causes your house and foundation to shift and settle, which cracks the concrete. Unfortunately, the climate in Fayetteville is moist all year long. The soil retains that moisture and exerts massive hydrostatic pressure on your foundation and basement walls. Any cracks in your concrete, no matter how small, will let water seep into your basement. Over time, the cracks will increase in number and size, and your basement will begin to take on water, which can lead to poor air quality and water damage.
