Why do Basement Leak

  • Leaking basements are a big problem. When water gets into a basement it can affect your whole house. It can cause foundation damage and even introduce harmful mold. Understanding why basement leak is the first step in preventing leaking in your basement.
  • Basements are used for many different things. In some homes they are used as storage place. In other homes they may be fully furnished and used as any other room in the house. Whatever the use it has, when water gets into the basement it is a hassle.
  • There are some different reasons that basement leak. One of the most common is simply water running into the basement through the wall joists, seeping through the floor and coming in through cracks. Problems like this can be solved by waterproofing a basement.
  • Sometimes basements leak because the drainage system around the house is clogged and that causes water to back up and flow into the basement. This can be solved by adding drainage and keeping drains clear.
  • If you do not have a finished basement your biggest concern is going to be simply protecting your home from water damage due to a leaking basement. You should install a drain in the floor so that any water that gets in will be able to get out. You should also consider all of the above solutions to common leaking problems.
  • If you have a finished basement they your best choice is to waterproof it. You should hire a trained and proven company to this for you. They will be able to waterproof of your basement so that it will not leak at all.
  • Basements by nature are generally damp. Most basements require the use of a dehumidifier to rid excess moisture from the air. Moisture can be just as damaging as a leak if left untreated.
  • Basements will leak because it is just natural. Basements are located below ground and if they are not properly build then leaking will occur. They are more suceptible to water leaking because they are closer to water sources and at the perfect level for drainage issues. By understanding the common causes of basement leaks you can help to prevent leaks in your basement.
  • Another common leak is through basement windows. When there is a lot of rain or snow drainage, windows can leak since they are at ground level. Installing newer windows can van help to solve this problem.

I am pleased to provide a statement in support of Primal Construction. They do excellent work. I have had my roof shingled, repairs to my foundation and a small building moved. All have been completed on time and professionally.

Primal Construction and its owner Eric Dihic have been excellent citizens of North Point Douglas. Very important is Primal’s willingness to hire local people. Providing employment is an important part of a healthy community.

Primal Contracting has performed a number of jobs in and around my basement, over the last few years - water proofing, patching cracks, studding and insulating, etc. The workers have always been on time, performed the job in the quoted time frame, cleaned up after the job was done and did it within a competitve price to fit my budget. I have recommended them to friends and would recommend them to anyone else that requires repairs to their foundation.
