Why Does My Basement Flood?
There are several reasons that your basement can have water issues and flooding:
- Structural problems in the foundation (cracks lead to leaks which lead to flooding)
- Water penetrating the basement wall (water gets in from the outside and can get inside the walls, weakening the stone or cement, leading to flooding)
- Water can enter around the windows or doors in the cellar (it only takes a pin-sized opening to allow water to get into your home)
May of the homes in the York area have all three problems. The town is prone to flooding because the water table can become overwhelmed when it rains for several days in a row.
All of that water saturates the ground, causes it to expand, the swollen ground puts pressure on your foundation and before you know it, water is getting in the basement.
How We Fix Your Basement:
- Waterproofing Inside and Out (the outside walls have to be treated or water will continue to pour in)
- Structural Repair (strengthening the foundation will help it withstand the pressure from expanded soil, stopping cracks from forming)
- Crack and Hole Repair (any cracks or holes in the floor or walls will be fixed and we will stop them from spreading)
- Better Drainage (yard drains, footer drains, driveway drains, cellar drains – anything that will keep water away from your basement and foundation will be used to keep your basement dry and foundation strong)
