Cause of Basement Leak

Cause of Basement Leaks in Central & Northern New Jersey & Staten Island, NY

Basement walls can leak due to a variety of reasons. Whether it be clogged drain pipes, hydrostatic pressure or choice of construction materials, the Sump Pump Geeks have the solution. We understand it is necessary to have a safe, waterproof basement.

Wall & Floor Leaks in New Jersey & New York Foundations

When external pipes are clogged or broken, they can’t drain water away from your foundation. The water buildup outside exerts heavy pressure on your walls, causing them to bow, crack and leak over time.


Wall bows and cracks compromise your home’s structural integrity, while leaks and cracks allow water, gas and even critters into your living spaces.

Clogged Drainage System

If your drain pipes become clogged, they must be dug up and fixed. This involves excavation and backfilling, and as such, leaves the ground less packed and tight, which increases permeability.


All of this, if not done properly, could cause more harm than good, further damaging your drains and allowing more water to build up and seep in.
