Identifying If Your Foundation Needs Waterproofing
Finding the cause of the leak in your wet basement is the first step in foundation waterproofing. Knowing much about the issue can be done by speaking with the homeowner. The diagnosis is significantly simpler if the basement is unfinished because water creates a path.
Diagnosing the problem can be difficult for an untrained eye, especially in a finished basement. However, rest assured, our expert Basement Advisors are skilled at assisting you in identifying the origin of the problem in a finished basement.
Causes Of A Wet Foundation Or Basement
There are several causes of a wet foundation or basement, and they are mentioned below:
A Water Leak Internally
Due to poor grading, rain or groundwater frequently finds its way into basements and necessitates the utilization of foundation waterproofing. Your foundation’s surroundings should slope away from the house rather than toward it. Water will build up against your foundation and finally find its way inside if the drainage goes wrong. This frequently occurs when fill dirt surrounding your foundation needs to be correctly compacted. Since the slope has changed as the ground has settled, water now runs into your home rather than away from it.
Missing or faulty downspouts and gutters
Your Foundation Has Cracks
You can be sure that if your foundation has cracks, water will discover them and seep into your basement. In other cases, the water may even be to blame for the fractures. The foundation walls may only be able to move if the floor joists are securely fastened to them, which will then cause cracks to appear. Leading you to get foundation cracks repair. Due to the soil’s poor drainage, water can also develop cracks in the foundation.
Suppose water is not redirected away from your foundation and collects against the walls of your foundation. In that case, hydrostatic pressure (which can result in fractures) can force the water into the walls. Whatever the cause of the fractures, water can enter your basement if they are present.
Broken Sump pit and poor (or missing) drain tiles
There are many homes without underground drainage systems. An under-the-floor drainage system wasn’t necessary because older homes sometimes needed to design basements to be livable areas. Modern homes with drainage systems frequently have issues with their system. It can be a clogged pipe, a damaged connection, or a malfunctioning sump pump.

5 Star Google & Home Advisor Reviews
I received a few quotes to get the walls in my home filled in with blown in insulation. Zavza Seal was affordable and they did an excellent job.
They were very concerned with cleaning up, which I appreciated. I felt the difference in my home immediately. No more freezing cold walls. I recommend them, hands down.
Our experience with Zavza Seal was wonderful and smooth. The crew is well organized. They listen to your plans. They showed out in time. They left everything clean. They did an amazing job! I highly recommend this company.
Efficient, courteous and responsible workers. The job was quoted as being completed in 2 days but more work was required and they returned on the 3rd day and completed the job without additional charges. They reinsulated my crawlspace (not an easy job). I recommend Zavza Seal without reservation.
Couldn’t be more satisfied with the job Zavza Seal did. Brendan and Jake were accommodating, fair and extremely knowledgeable. Their team worked incredibly hard that day under difficult conditions and did a great job. I manage a multi-unit HOA and we will definitely be using them again.
