Causes of Water Problems

Basement and crawl space water problems are almost always caused by water pressure against the walls, foundation, or floor of the basement or crawl space. According to the experts, this water pressure can result from a number of different sources, including poor grading, defective gutters/downspouts, or a high water table. Whatever the cause, excess water that applies pressure to the outside basement wall, foundation, or floor will force its way into the house.
