Common Causes of Basement Leaks
Most commonly, a basement leak is caused by excess water from storm damage, a failing sump pump, or because of a plumbing leak. Even just one inch of rain can lead to over 1,000 gallons of water entering your home. Without maintenance and quick restoration services, a basement leak will worsen. We won’t let that happen to your home.
Defective Gutters and Downspouts
When it comes to ceiling damage, the water generally stems from above from plumbing leaks, burst pipes, or storm damage. Most often, storm damage worsens exponentially because of defective gutters and downspouts. These systems were designed to push water away from your home. When they fail, water enters freely.
Hidden Plumbing Leaks
If your plumbing system is old or in disrepair, a hidden plumbing leak could easily go unnoticed for quite some time. Before long, you’ll notice the signs of water damage. In your basement, you’ll smell the musty odor before you see the mold. In the ceiling, a ring of water damage will appear.
