Wet Basements Nationwide

Published on May 21st, 2015

Chronically damp or wet basements are a common problem. According to statistics published by the American Society of Home Inspectors, a nonprofit professional association, about 60 percent of the houses in the United States have moisture problems.

There is no foolproof cure, but homeowners who learn the causes and the remedies can probably have repairs made that are both effective and economical.

The chief causes of basement wetness are flowing water, hydrostatic pressure and condensation. Moisture enters the basement from outdoors. Flowing ground water enters through cracks or other openings in the foundation; moisture in saturated soil enters through solid masonry (as well as through cracks and other openings) because of the natural pressure the soil exerts against the foundation. Or moisture forms when warm indoor air comes into contact with cooler basement walls. Prepare, Then Repair
