How To Beat Basement Flooding

In both new and old homes, a wet or damp basement can be a common problem. When we are on site to replace doors, we often find water or moisture issues in basements created by problems with the sealing around cellar doors – i.e. if there is a cellar door accessed from outside. A common cause of flooding.

Damp basements prevent you from using the space to the fullest potential. Wet basements often lead to mold, mildew, and ruined flooring and wall materials. Even worse, a wet basement can become a structural liability if the issue is not resolved. Below we have included an infographic, which attempts to explain why water seeps into your basement.
