Leaks, seepage, and water penetration can happen to any basement and for many different reasons. A leaking basement is often times the result of hydrostatic pressure from water in the ground around and underneath your home. Due to the force of gravity, water gets forced through cracks and gaps in your foundation walls. These cracks and gaps are a result of foundation issues like bowing walls or a large increase in ground water pressure, unsealed cove joints, faulty sump pumps, basement wall honeycombing, and unsealed penetrating pipes.
Water can also seep through window wells that are poorly installed. Water entering your basement through a window well doesn’t have anything to do with ground water pressure though. Although window wells serve an important purpose by allowing light and air flow, if the drain is clogged, then water will fill the well and enter through the window. This is especially true during heavy rains, which are usually when these cause basement seepage.
