WARNING PROBLEM SIGNS YOU MAY NEED BASEMENT WATERPROOFING CONTRACTORS

Learn what causes of a wet basement, and how to prevent basement leaks in your home.

When moisture becomes a problem, it’s important to determine whether the water is coming from outside or inside, because the remediation strategies are different. When water is coming from outside, the best strategy is usually to improve drainage around the exterior of the house, although you may be able to block seepage to a degree by making indoor repairs, such as patching cracks and plugging holes. If condensation is the culprit, you’ll probably want to improve ventilation and add insulation to the walls to reduce the temperature differential that causes condensation to form. In extreme situations in which water actually pools on the floor, you may need to control it with a pump.
