When your yard isn't graded properly, chances are you will find a lot of moisture or water leaking into your basement. This occurs when your lawn isn't sloped properly away from the foundation. When it rains, water rolls downhill and pools up next to the base of your home. Over time, the water will seep into the soil making its way into your basement or crawlspace through cracks in the floor or foundation walls. Additionally, if you have a clog in your window well drain, water will build up next to your basement windows and eventually break the seal, getting inside. If there is even the smallest crack or opening around your foundation, water will always find a way into your home.
Improper grading can also lead to a rising water table around your home. The added moisture in your soil causes it to expand and swell. This adds additional pressure to your basement walls and floors may eventually lead to cove joint seepage or floor cracks. By taking preventative steps, you can ensure that your home’s foundation is safe and secure for years to come.
