A dry basement will protect the investment you made in your home and enable you to use the space for storage or as additional living space. A wet basement is a common problem with all basements, from poured concrete to stone to block. At All Season’s Waterproofing and Drainage, Inc., we’ve dried thousands of each type of basement.
Today, disclosure laws are such that whether you fix your leaky basement now or fix it before you sell your home, it will need to be fixed at some point in time.

Why do basements leak?
The Clay Bowl Effect
When your home was built, a hole was excavated into very hard, virgin soil to accommodate the basement. The ground never “forgets” this hole; thus, whenever the ground becomes saturated, water will always seek to fill this hole. This water creates pressure around your walls and floor, allowing for seepage at any cracks or joints. This water pressure will occur during prolonged heavy rains despite your best efforts to keep groundwater away from your home. That is why extending downspouts, building up the grade, caulking driveway cracks, and adding room addition slabs may mitigate the seepage you receive but won’t solve the problem.
Three Types of Leaks
Locating where water enters your home is key to choosing the appropriate solution, so mark the source whenever the seepage is active.

The basement is a valuable part of your home and is designed to be a dry, usable space, whether as a finished recreation room, a workshop, or simply a safe storage area. Once a leak occurs, however, its usefulness and value are very limited – fortunately, permanent solutions are available for all seepage problems.
