Basement water seepage is normally caused by a buildup of surface water around the top of the foundation, or groundwater around the foundation walls. If water is allowed to pool around the surface of the foundation, it will seep into the basement through cracks in the foundation. Water may also seep through the porous concrete of the foundation and create numerous moisture issues. Excess water in the ground around your home can also seep through the foundation. Not only does this water seepage lead to water issues in the basement, but it can also be detrimental to the structural integrity of your entire home. Water that makes its way into the basement can cause rust and wood rot, weakening the structural supports in the basement. If water seeps through the concrete, it will weaken the concrete, creating an unstable foundation.

For water seepage, one of the best repair options is interior waterproofing. the interior waterproofing systems from Ground Up work to collect water that has made its way into the basement and carry it out and away from the home. First, the water is collected by various drain pipes and water channels installed along the bottom of the walls, and along the foundation footings. This water is carried to the sump pit, where it is stored until the water level is high enough to activate the sump pump. Once the water in the sump pit reaches a certain level, the sump pump begins to pump it out and away from the home.
Another option is to prevent water seepage before it happens. This can be done with exterior waterproofing and and surface drainage.
