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.
