Most often, when a homeowner finds they have a leaky basement, his or her first thought is of rain. Not surprising, when heavy rains often cause wet basements and most preventive efforts involve managing rain water outside the house, including cleaning gutters, extending downspouts and fixing grading and landscaping so that water runs away from the house. Rain may be the most common source of a leaky basement but it’s not the only one. Melting snow can also find its way into the basement, either at the time of “spring thaw” or during fluctuating temperatures in winter. Frozen earth near the surface may exacerbate the problem.
Sometimes, home sellers ask “why should I fix this problem now?” Any unfinished work done to the home will continually need to be repaired until the problem is fixed permanently. It is clear that the issue of a defective foundation is going to have to be dealt with. Fixing the problem now, can avoid potential buyers becoming hesitant to purchase the home. In addition, if you decide not to repair the problem in advance, the overall potential buyer pool may be diminished due to the uncertainty of the foundation.
