Foundation Problems: Foundation Seepage
Foundation water seepage is generally due to excessive rains and the pooling of surface water around your home's foundation. The best way to determine the cause of foundation seepage is to walk around the perimeter of your home after a steady rain. Take note of how the gutters and downspouts are responding to the rain and see if any are routed toward the house. Monthly gutter checks can really make a big difference in your exterior waterproofing
maintenance. Before you call us, there are a few other things to check for.
Here are some remedies that you might be able to do yourself to take care of minimal foundation seepage.
- Clean out gutters and downspouts
- Make sure downspouts are long enough and routed away from the foundation
- Clean out all debris from window wells
- Install plastic covers over open window wells
- Be sure all exterior drains are free of debris and in working order
If you still notice seepage after performing the above steps, it's time to call in the professionals.
