Most Common Causes of Basement MoistureAt Foundation Solutions 360, we want our homeowners with basements to know what to look for when it comes to basement moisture. There are a variety of ways that moisture can develop in your basement, however we want to highlight the most common causes that our basement waterproofing professionals at Foundation Solutions 360 regularly see.

Poor Drainage Systems

With basements typically being the lowest part of a residential property, they are more susceptible to water damage than any other part of the home. This is especially true when the drainage system around a home is not in great shape. The rain and water that gets released from your gutter system can easily find its way into your basement if the drainage system in place is not properly redirecting the excess water away from your basement. If basement moisture has occurred on your property because of your drainage system, our team at Foundation Solutions 360 can work to make sure that the basement moisture from this issue is identified and repaired.

Faulty Gutters

Many homeowners don’t realize just how important gutters are to ensure your home and basement stays protected from moisture. Due to this lack of knowledge, homeowners often push back gutter system repairs because of costs. In turn, these faulty gutters that may be clogged or leaking may be the reason that you’ve got basement moisture issues in the first place. Even worse, this excess water can make its way into your foundation, causing even bigger problems for your home down the road. The good news is that Foundation Solutions 360 can apply basement waterproofing techniques to ensure your basement is protected from moisture issues in the future.

Basement Cracks

Depending on the age of your home, the basement moisture that you’re dealing with could be due to basement cracks that have developed over time. Whether it is cracks in your floors, walls, doorways or even windows, basement moisture can easily occur when direct contact with water occurs. Let our team at Foundation Solutions 360 evaluate your basement for any cracking of any kind. If there is basement cracking, our basement repair professionals have you covered.
