A wet basement can be one of the most damaging and stressful events to happen in your home, causing inconvenience and costly repairs to be made. Homes in our Lower Mainland region should be protected from the constant damaging effects to buildings caused by excessive rainfalls, a leak or crack in your home’s basement walls, poor lot drainage, failure of the weeping tiles, blocked connection between your home and the main sewer/water line system, a back-up of wastewater in the sewer system, failure of a sump pump (in some areas).

Even a basement with no seepage problems during a heavy rain does not guaranty the basement will remain permanently dry. A single rain may or may not result in seepage. A heavy rain may not raise the groundwater level sufficiently to cause water to seep through the foundation walls.

Moisture problems are also intermittent. In some houses, water penetration will occur after virtually every rain. In other houses, it will occur only after periods of prolonged rain, and in still others, it will only happen with wind driven rain or during a spring thaw.

Since reasonably all basements will leak at some point, the question is probably not, "Will the basement leak?" but, "When and How often it will leak?"

A wet basement can be caused by:
• Problems with drain tiles
• Broken or damaged water line
• Leaky roof
• Clogged gutters & downspouts
• Improper surface drainage
• Leak from water heater/washing machine
• Porous concrete
• Surface or groundwater
• High outdoor humidity

Should you have any of the above problems, call us at: 604-512-5211 or fill out our contact form and we will have a licensed plumber get in touch will you. 

   
The two most likely sources of water against foundation wall are from surface water, and from roof drains discharging too near the wall, a significant amount of water can easily flow back around the basement wall, filtering down and impregnating the soils adjacent to the foundation.

When the ground under and around the house is saturated, water can seep into the basement through cracks and open joints in the foundation. Probably the most common cause of wet basements is cracked, blocked or crushed drain tiles.

Quality builders and concerned home owners use - Drain Master on all their projects to ensure their
