Soil Settlement

Water will gather around a home’s foundation as backfill soil settles. This water will contribute to the pressure against basement walls, causing basement wall cracking and leaking. Another cause of basements leaking from walls are gutters,which do not face away from the home. Gutters need to face the opposite direction of a home in order to prevent water from pooling near the foundation of the home.
