Do you have a wet basement?

An effective and informative article about wet basements. Did you know most basements are wet because of improper grading and poorly installed gutters/downspouts?

Keep water away from the foundation. This means proper site drainage that assures that surface runoff and roof spillage are conducted away from the building. Most of the wet basements  investigated were suffering from mis-handling of roof drainage. Between gutter defects that spill large volumes of water close to the foundation and improper site grading, we estimate that 80 percent or more of basement water entry problems can be explained.
