Many times, water leakage in the basement of a home is the result of a failing foundation. Foundation cracks can form when the concrete starts to settle or sink. These cracks provide water with a way to enter your basement. Poor drainage can also contribute to a wet basement. If water is allowed to pool around the foundation, it may start seeping through the concrete walls of the foundation. This leads to basement leakage and basement water problems.
Some of the signs that you are dealing with a wet basement in your Colorado home may include:
If you see these issues in your home, contact consider investing in one of our many basement waterproofing solutions.
The first thing you must do when you discover you have a wet basement is remove any excess moisture from your basement. This can be done using an interior waterproofing system. The interior waterproofing system uses a combination of different channels, drains, and pipes to catch and collect any water running down your basement walls or pooling on the floor. This water is then pumped out of the home by the sump pump system.
The next thing to do is to ensure that this does not become a problem again. You can do this by having the team at Rapid put in a basement drainage and exterior drainage system. The basement drainage system consists of surface drainage components - the gutters, downspouts, grading around your foundation, catch basins, etc. that keep water from getting too close to your home. Exterior drainage is a more precise system. The parts of this system include a waterproofing membrane applied to the exterior foundation wall, a drainage board on the foundation wall that helps water run down the wall to the next part, the drain pipe system (this carries water away from your home).
