Causes of Water Intrusion
It does not matter if you
have a poured concrete foundation, block walls, or a clay tile
foundation, water is the number one enemy to any type of foundation.
Water infiltration through basement walls, poor gutters, downspouts,
bad drainage, and subsurface water may lead to wet basements and
crawlspaces. By stopping this water infiltration you will be
protecting your homes value and your families’ health.
Checklist to prevent water problems:
- Free Flowing Exterior Drain System
- Sealed Interior Drainage System
Without all of these things working
together you are risking a flooded basement and potential structural
problems. Water is the enemy, a smart water management system
installed by a trained professional such as ProWorks Basement Repair
is your first line of defense.
