Common Basement Water Problems

 
St. Louis Basement Waterproofing

Hydrostatic Pressure

Hydrostatic pressure is a term used to describe a high or rising water table.  In St Louis, water tables can fluctuate dramatically depending on rain fall amounts, snow melt, and drought.  If the water table rises enough, water can come up through cracks in the floor or around the perimeter at the floor and wall seam.  Basement Waterproofing, the installation of interior drainage systems and sump pumps, relieves the hydrostatic pressure and keeps the water table below the basement floor.

Exterior Water Problems St. Louis

Exterior Water Issues

Exterior water issues include standing water in yard, water coming in over top of foundation, window wells filling up, and downspouts dumping next to foundation.  Correcting yard grade, installing french drains, and extending downspouts are effective simple solutions to these problems.
