LEAKAGES OVER TOP OF WALL

There are many indicators to hint at a leaking basement. Aquatech Waterproofing can help you to reveal these signs, and provide fast and professional solutions that will ensure your property remains dry.  One way to identify leakages is by checking for any water seeping into the basement from the top of foundation. Aquatech Waterproofing can provide technical advice and resealing services on leak or damp problems in your basement or foundations.

ASSESSING LEAKAGES

FOUNDATION GRADING

Mostly, leaks occur due to grading problems. If the soil grade is higher than the foundations, then the water and soil can create pressure that forces water through the weak spots between the top of the wall and the sill.

WATER POOLS

Another cause of foundation damages occurs due to issues like poor structures, climate and inadequate grading amongst other issues. Poor grading could cause this if water drainage is clogged leading to water pooling on the walls of the property. A poorly installed downspout, defective decks or exterior feature, coupled with heavy rainfall could all cause serious problems.

Upon noticing water flow from foundation walling tops, one should verify externally to assess whether they can see any causes described above.
