Why does my basement get wet?

Basement leaks can often be mysterious and seem unexplainable. How could your basement be leaking without heavy rains or standing water? Unfortunately, this is because there's actually a variety of ways for water to seep into your basement.

The Clay Bowl Effect

After your foundation is laid, the area around your foundation will be refilled with soil. However, this soil is generally far less dense than the undisturbed soil around it. This allows water to collect in the soil around your foundation. As this water builds up it will begin to pressure your foundation walls and, eventually, cause cracks.

Hydrostatic Pressure

When water soaks the loose soil around your foundations the soil will start to expand. As the soil expands it will push outwards, straight into your foundation walls. This steadily increasing pressure will start to cause cracks and then water will flow into your home through these cracks.
