With all of the rain the Des Moines area has received recently, many residents are experiencing a wet basement. This can be a serious problem that is both time-consuming and costly to fix. Too often, homeowners don’t consider this problem affecting their home until it does, at which point it’s unfortunately too late to prevent. The most common cause of water leaking into a basement is a faulty gutter system, so having the right gutters is key to a water-free basement!
Don’t underestimate the danger of clogs, that cause water to spill over your gutter and pool on the ground below. This can result in damage to your foundation causing cracks and even basement flooding. The overflow from clogged gutters can also lead to surface erosion, which occurs when rainwater continuously hits the ground in a concentrated area beneath the roofline. Over time, this repeated contact will move the dirt and create a trench that usually will run the length of the gutter system. These trenches can potentially seep into the foundation, causing a wet basement.
