What causes my basement to leak?
Many people we visit are surprised by basement seepage. We often hear they have lived in the home a long time and it never leaked before. Sometimes the seepage is caused by something simple like roof drainage. If your gutters are overflowing next to the foundation, your foundation drainage and waterproofing system can be overwhelmed. Disconnected downspout lines dumping water next to the foundation will almost always result in basement seepage. So first take a look at your roof water management to be sure it is working properly.
All basements leak eventually. Just like all homes need a replacement of the roofing materials at some point to avoid leaks, all basements need the waterproofing system replaced at some point. Foundation seal failure and or foundation drain failure are inevitable and will result in seepage.
There are various other possibilities of course, so a good inspection by a professional will help you determine what went wrong and what type of basement waterproofing, if any, you need.

How to determine what type of basement waterproofing will solve your problem
Water seepage can occur through three main areas; The walls, the seam where the wall meets the floor, and up through the floor. Many people assume that digging out around the foundation will fix all basement leaks. However, if the seepage is coming up from under the basement floor, it may be ground water build up. Installing drains outside of the foundation may not get the water build up that is under the basement floor. We also meet many people that do not want to dig their basement out for an exterior fix but they have wet foundation walls. An interior drainage system can result in a dry basement but will not stop water that is getting into the foundation walls.
So in a nutshell, wet basement walls (wet more than just the bottom two rows of block) indicates a failed seal to the exterior of the basement walls. The best fix is from the outside to stop that from continuing and preserve your foundation. And basement water seepage from the wall and floor seam with dry basement walls other than the bottom row or two can easily be drained and dried up from the interior.
The bottom line is there are options. At Pioneer we take the time to evaluate the causes of your basement water seepage. We review all solutions so you can make a well-informed decision on the best way to fix your wet basement.
