At the Real Seal, we strongly believe in this philosophy as well. However, when nature decides to take over by flooding your basement and causing foundation problems, contact us and we’ll help you take your home back and restore the balance between your family, your home, and Mother Nature.
Finding out that water has flooded your basement can be very frustrating and stressful. You’re probably wondering how this could happened. There are a few ways water enters your home:
Sump pump pit – your sump pump system allows ground water to enter your home very temporarily into a pit in your basement, so it can send the water to a drainage system that leads somewhere way from your home. When sump pumps fail, the water doesn’t get pumped away and floods your basement. Replace your sump pump every 5 years.
Window well drain clog – window wells help circulate air through your home and provide sun light to your basement. But when window well drains clog, water instead drains into your basement.
Hydrostatic pressure – happens when the soil around your home contains too much water. This puts a large amount of pressure on your foundation if the water can’t drain fast enough or at all, which causes cracks and fractures or foundation settling and bowing. Then the water forces itself through cracks and gaps in your foundation walls or floors. This is the most common reason for foundation problems.
Foundations are built to last a hundred years, and since Oak Park has many old buildings, it’s no surprise that you might see some foundation issues or basement leakage due to the reasons above, degradation over time, or the weight of the home or building itself.
