Why do wet basement problems occur?

Basement needing a wet basement repairA wet basement can occur because of a variety of reasons due to the fact that a basement is typically within a closed area and thus prone to high humidity conditions that lead to dampness and flooding. However, more serious reasons why a wet basement problem may occur include:

  • Surface water running down foundation walls
  • Cracks in foundation walls allowing moisture penetration
  • Groundwater being pushed from the soil into the basement by hydrostatic pressure
  • A downspout that has become disconnected
  • Water ingress
  • Failed damp proofing barrier
