The basement of your home is just as important as any other living space whether it's finished or not. It needs to remain in good shape in order to keep your home safe and dry. A basement that gets wet or floods, even if it's only during big storms, will suffer damage to the walls and flooring. This can cause the issues to become bigger and more serious as time passes. These problems will make the cost of repairs go up as the damage increases. The potential losses are not only monetary, but can include personal items and your time and energy to clean up after each storm.

Water can still get into your basement even without obvious cracks or damage. This is due to hydrostatic pressure. Saturated soil at the base of your foundation can cause pressure build up, thus pushing water through the smallest cavities creating leaks in your home. Over time, the small weaknesses in the foundation floor and walls will become larger if left untreated. Water will create pathways that often permeate the joint between the floor and walls, also called the cove joint.
Hydrostatic pressure, caused by the Clay Bowl Effect, is one of the side-effects of construction. Loose soil that was excavated then backfilled during the building of the foundation is more porous than the hard-packed soil around it that has been untouched for millions of years. The loose soil holds ground water and creates pressure that pushes against the foundation as the water looks for the path of least resistance.
