What causes basement leaking and flooding in foundations?
A faulty basement wall doesn’t just come about overnight or even over the course of a few months. As concrete cures, it shrinks. This process can go on for 5-6 months and up to 10 years after a home is constructed.
What this means is that is it quite commonplace to have many smaller, hairline cracks in all types of basement walls – even newer houses. In most instances, those cracks won’t grow much larger. Unfortunately, they can open up more, creating gaps for water and moisture to come in.
Concrete is a porous material that tends to allow water vapor to soak through and enter through foundation and crawl space walls. You know this well if you have ever had a flooded basement, leaky foundation or have witnessed concrete drying.
When water passes through a concrete barrier, it may reach the large, hollow gaps in the block and push through foundation cracks. Cavities in block walls may fill up with water, while soaking the concrete and forcing its way into your house. Water can also seep through floor and walls joints and flood the area.
