It is a common problem to have water enter a basement during periods of heavy rain. However, in some cases just a light snow can cause leaking! If you have an unfinished basement, it is easy to see when this is occurring. In an unfinished basement you will see water pooling on top of the basement slab. In a finished basement it is common for owners to not know they have a water issue until they step on a wet spot on the floor, or until they begin to smell odors. Although it may not be a lot of water, even the smallest amounts can cause big problems! Water will generally enter the home through the floor, walls, or windows. In some cases it can be very difficult to locate where the problem is or what is causing it. That is why it is so important to have an expert inspect these issues.
