HYDROSTATIC_PRESSURE

 

Did you know that “WATER SEEPAGE ‘ is the culprit of many basements in our area. Whether it is MOSITURE or two feet of water, it is a problem. This moisture can destroy your living space and it’s contents. It can cause mold, mildew & can lead to serious issues.
Typically this means there is water (hydrostatic) pressure building up outside the basement walls or floors. If left unattended this can lead to major structural problems for your home.
Water typically comes trough the foundation cracks or through your seams between the foundation wall and slab at the floor joint.  If you have a concrete block wall water can then enter through the weep holes or the grout lines.
