What Causes Hydrostatic Pressure to Have an Impact on Your Home?
The pressure from the water builds underneath basement floors and around the walls, and gravity pushes water into your living space through even the tiniest cracks. That’s why you won’t be able to find one specific entry point for the water.
This moisture can form more cracks and cause foundation walls to bow, so you’ll want to take care of it right away.
The type of soil around your home greatly affects how much it expands and shrinks when it receives moisture. Remember that clay soil will absorb more water than sandy soil, so the more it absorbs, the more built-up pressure is present behind your basement’s walls.
A huge mistake people make is that they let water pool near their home’s foundation. The issue with this is that you can’t keep water outside; foundation walls are typically made of concrete, therefore they’re porous and will absorb this water. Concrete may be strong, but it doesn’t stand a chance to large amounts of water. Unfortunately, current estimates indicate that a home’s foundation issues reduces its value by 10 to 15%.
