First, you should keep an eye out for any water that is collecting in your basement. Try to notice where the water is coming from. It could be from a cove joint, window wells, cracks in the foundation walls or floor or even from places like the sump pump. You should also be able to notice any musty smell that will develop from the water sitting around after seeping in.
You should also keep an eye out for bowing walls in your basement which can signify a potential foundation problem. When the hydrostatic pressure outside of your home becomes too great, it pushes hard against your foundation and can actually bow the concrete and even buckle if left over time.
Cracks in the walls and floors can be caused from settling or pressure from outside of the home. Cracks that reach all the way through the wall create an easy access point for water to seep into your basement.
If Highland Park stands out for anything, it is the iconic Ravinia Festival. People from all around Chicago gather here to watch bands that stretch through the decades and symphonies that will move you to tears. The warm, welcoming atmosphere and picnic-esque seating arrangement make this venue quite possibly the best in Chicagoland.
Something else Highland Park gets as well as mass crowds is massive rains. With houses that can be over 100 years old, Basement Seepage is a real issue. Many of these old foundations are starting to show signs of Foundation Cracks, causing Flooded Basements. These Foundation Cracks are caused through settlement over time and allow water to leak into your Basement.
