Water in Your Basement

Water in your basement typically occurs as the result of stormwater and sanitary sewer backups. These are the basic causes, however, there are other conditions that can make these situations worse than they have to be.

Stormwater. Water often seeps through walls, floors or windows.  Typical reasons for this are 1) inadequate water drainage from gutters or footer drains, 2) grading around a home which causes water to pond or drain towards the foundation of your home, and 3) malfunctioning sump pumps.

Sanitary Sewer Backups.  If your sewer backs up, water will back into your basement through the basement drain.  These types of backups result when water accumulates in the sewer system due to to a significant rainfall (particularly in older neighborhoods). Water can also backup due to a sanitary sewer surcharging due to inflow and infiltration ("I/I") of excess water entering through cracks in city and home sewer lines.  It can also occur due to blockages caused by grease (or other debris), roots, and pipe collapses (deterioration).  Often it is a combination of these reasons.

Poor Grading.  Poor grading around the foundation of your home which causes stormwater to drain towards your home instead of away from your home. There are relatively easy fixes for these types of situations.

A High Water Table. This can also lead to hydrostatic pressure (water being forced against the foundation or floor slab of your home). If this is your problem, the solution often becomes an issue of water management. Keeping the water out may be impossible. Thus, solutions for properly draining or pumping water are often used.

Poor drainage systems. If gutters, basement stairs, and drains are clogged, they can often lead to water runoff into locations you do not desire. This is often an issue of maintenance. If these areas are properly maintained, you can often avoid larger water problems.

Cracks in Foundation. Foundation settlement cause cracks in basement walls and provide easier access for water to intrude. Although cracks may be a sign that you have some structural problems that need to be address, they are less of a concern from a water perspective. Sealing cracks from the outside will often solve the "crack" issue. However, if you have poor drainage or high water tables, sealing cracks from the outside will not likely do the trick. Often, there are a combination of items that need to be addressed.
