Why Does My Basement Leak?Posted on Oct 08th, 2014
Over time, most basements will begin to leak. The major components of your home such as your windows, the plumbing, your roof, etc., has a lifespan and WILL need to be updated or maintained over the years to keep it running properly and safely. Over the years, no matter how new or old your home may be, the tiles that normally surround your basement which are known as weeping tiles, will begin to crack and shift. Once this happens, the cracks will allow for water to slowly make its way in, making the situation even worse. It is definitely fixable with simple waterproofing, however, it is important to get this done right away to avoid larger water damages in the long run.
