The leaking basement: It’s an all-too-common issue that causes untold stress to the unsuspecting homeowner. At the time of construction, contractors often disregard the proper structural components that are central to a solid, leak-free foundation that will withstand the test of time. Therefore, the secret to maintaining a dry basement is prevention. To fully understand this concept, simply take a brief look at the walls of your basement.
Your walls should boast a rubber membrane sealant that will lock out moisture, thus protecting your home’s structural integrity. Unfortunately, builders simply fail to offer any proper waterproofing at the base site of construction. As a result of such negligence, groundwater infiltrates the footer joint below ground, due to the earth’s natural pressure. Without an effective barrier system in place, the groundwater must the routed somewhere, which results in those frustrating (and potentially serious) basement leaks.
