Why Does Your Basement Leak?
When your home was built, an exterior drain tile channel is installed a head of the footer to collect water from around the house. The drain tile feeds the water to the sump pump which pumps it off site.
As the years pass, the drain tile becomes fills will soil and debris, and eventually becomes clogged. Once the waterproofing system is clogged, the water is trapped. Until it builds up enough hydrostatic pressure and enters your home’s basement through the cove area, floor, walls or basement wall crack.
Different Solutions to Fixing a Damp Wet Basement
The old fashioned solution is to hire heavy equipment and tear up the earth around your home, and replace the failed waterproofing system with a similar, but new drainage system. But more than likely, it will fail again.
Many waterproofing contractors install old fashioned, antiquated footing drains – because in many regions, that is what has always been done. Some newer systems even offer a fabric screen around the underground openings to the system. But those filters eventually clog and fail, and the system must be torn out for service.
These old fashioned systems cost about twice as much as our modern, interior system. Our waterproofing system doesn’t suffer from the clogging problem old fashioned exterior systems have.
