What Causes A Wet Basement?

Water takes the path of least resistance. Therefore if you have any cracks in your basement walls or floor, these will become paths for water to travel. Sometimes it’s not evident where the water is actually coming from, though, which is why basement wall leaks should be inspected on a regular basis. Some of the common causes of a wet basement include the following:

  • Water Leak Detection DiagramPoor Drainage
  • Improperly Installed Exterior Drains
  • Plumbing Leaks
  • Improperly Sized Sump Pump

  • Wall Cracks
