Basement Problem Signs in Lafayette
Identifying basement problem signs is simple. If you suspect basement issues, just walk into your basement, and you’ll be able to see damage affecting walls, carpet, and more. Keep an eye out for flooded stairs, floor cracks, leaky windows, water seeping from walls, wall cracks, or ochre stains on stone walls. All of these indicate that moisture is getting into your basement, and if left unchecked, could cause considerable damage to your possessions.
Leaking water from basement walls is an alarming sign for homeowners, and can be the result of more damage that the eye can see.
Discovering a flooded basement can be a very upsetting thing to discover — especially if it’s never flooded that badly in the past. Our trained experts specialize in wet basement repairs of all kinds and can provide a great solution for you.
What are the Causes of Basement Damage in Lafayette?
Basement damage comes from a few different causes, all of them having to do with water. Often, internal leaks cause massive amounts of water to build up in your basement. For instance, a leaking water heater will expel a lot of water in a short amount of time. Water can also leak in from outside after heavy storms. Lafayette receives about 38 inches of rain and 19 inches of snow every year. When water drains into the soil surrounding your basement, pressure builds up and pushes against your basement’s walls due to a force known as hydrostatic pressure. No matter how water gets into your basement, it causes humidity to rise and leads to the stack effect – a process in which warm humid air travels up into your house.
