Most homeowners understand the importance of protecting their basements from water damage. It’s essential to keep basements dry and protected from outside water to ensure they will remain functional for storage or additional living space. However, many basements succumb to the pressure that comes from heavy rainfall or melted snow. Musty smells, condensation, and wet walls are just some of the signs that external water is leaking into your basement. While plumbing issues or sump pump failure can sometimes cause basement leaks, hydrostatic pressure is another common cause. This pressure occurs when the soil around your basement absorbs excess water. The foundation often can’t handle this pressure, so the water will eventually leak through cracks in the concrete walls. If you’ve noticed signs of water in your basement, it’s important to contact an expert who can identify the cause and recommend an effective solution, like our basement drain tiles. American Foundation & Waterproofing has many years of experience serving the Chattanooga metro area, and we can help protect your basement from water damage with our basement waterproofing services.
