Possible Causes of Basement Leaks

Water can seep into your basement in many ways. Some of the possible causes of leaks can be:

  • Missing or damaged gutter/downspouts - Gutters and downspouts are supposed to protect your foundation by keeping the rainwater away, a damaged gutter will cause water to enter the basement premises.
  • Interior leakage - Any faulty appliance can cause leakage and create a damp basement. For E.g. a faulty sink or water heater can be reasons for moisture in the basement.
  • Condensation - When the weather is humid warm air comes in contact with the cool basement walls creating condensation.
  • A faulty drainage system - Most modern homes have a drainage system installed to keep their basement dry. When this drainage system does not work properly because of a clogged pipe, broken connection, or a broken sump pump, basements flood.
  • Cracked walls - Even if there is a slight crack in the walls of the basement, water will find its way inside your property.
