Basements Leaks

Hydrostatic Pressure
Hydrostatic pressure is the result of what happens when water has no route away from a basement area , so it begins to push against the foundation. This pressure will press against basement walls

. causing basement wall cracking and leaking as water enters a basement

Wall Cracks
Bowing or tilting walls are results of hydrostatic pressure pushing against walls of a basement.
. Basement wall cracks will allow water to seep through and create a wet basement

Soil Settlement
The backfill soil builders used to fill the empty space around a home’s basement walls will settle due to being loose. Once backfill soil settles, it will allow water to run towards the foundation, contributing to hydrostatic pressure against basement walls. Additionally, gutters that do not face . away from a home will also contribute to hydrostatic pressure

Rigid polyurethane foams are made with a remarkably strong, yet lightweight, low-density structure that is both dimensionally stable and moisture-resistant with low vapor transmission. This special combination of properties allows manufacturers to design thermal insulating products that are self-supporting, can be combined with a wide range of substrates while requiring no additional adhesive, and—when combined with the proper materials—perform as external weather and moisture barriers
