http://amaexcavationanddrainage.com/drainage-septic-company/Our wet season is here in the Lower Mainland of BC. Either a wet or leaky basement in Langley, Surrey or Abbotsford BC could be an issue. There are many different reasons why water gets into our basements in a way of a wet (flood) or leaky basement. A few areas to consider checking to make sure are in proper working order.
*Wall Basement Leak * Window Wells leak * Leaking Basement Wall Cracks * Tie Rod Holes * Honeycomb Leakage * Sewer Pipe Leaking * Mortar Joint Leak * Water Pipes Conducts Leaking * Floor Cracks * Sump Pump Failure * Floor Drain Clog * Floor & Wall Joint Leakage * Plugged Drain Tile.
But with all of these different causes of leaky basements what is the best way to resolve and/or prevent the problem?
Overall, the majority of basement leaks, including the ones listed above, can be traced back to the drainage conditions around the outside of your basement. If too much water collects in the soil around your foundation and there is no proper solution to drain the water away from the home, it will naturally find its way into your home. The waterproofing solution lies in improving these drainage conditions.
Do you need a new or repaired perimeter drain? A French drain in the backyard to divert pooling water areas away from your house or yard?
