Cause of Basement Leaks in St. Louis, MO

Basement Leaks Service

Factors contributing to basement leaks are numerous. A leak could occur in the construction process, stemming from the excavation of soil and backfilling, or the use of different sorts of concrete wall blocks and stone walls. For years in the Greater St. Louis area, Midwest Basement Tech has been an expert when it comes to basement waterproofing because of our extensive experience and knowledge.

Excavation & Backfilling

During the establishment of a basement foundation, a portion of soil is removed to make the space needed for the construction. Upon completion of the basement, the soil is backfilled against the wall of the basement. This soil is much looser and more permeable to water than the soil that has remained untouched. Meaning that this soil will absorb more water on rainy days, increasing the chances of water seeping through the basement wall.

Wall-Floor Joint

A small gap is usually created intentionally between the floor and the wall to prevent cracks from forming in the floor. Water under high pressure can penetrate this gap and seep in through the foot of the basement

Clogged Footing Drain

Footing drains can sometimes be crushed during the backfilling process. Moreover, footing drains clog over time due to particles in the soil and become ineffective in the drainage of the water. The water then finds its way into the basement through small openings and gaps.

Basement Wall Leak

Various types of blocks used in the basement foundation have various chances of leaking. For instance, stone wall joints can weaken under immense pressure from the water, and create small gaps through which water can enter, same with concrete block walls.
