Tip #3. Do you know if the water seepage is stemming from an above- or below-grade cause?
In basement leaks, water seeps through one of three areas. Water can seep through the walls, through the floor or floor/wall joint, or over the top of the wall. Read about the types of problems are indicated for each of these three sources. Knowing the difference between above- and below-grade causes will allow consumers to choose the best contractor and most effective repair.
