With a deluge of rain, all of that water runs directly for the cracks in dry, compact soils. The dried out ground isn’t capable of handling the sudden influx of water and provides very little absorption until it really becomes wet and almost saturated. Regardless of what kind of foundation you can have, it might be predisposed towards cracking and that might make it susceptible to water intrusion. Poured concrete has enhanced the quality of basements over the past sixty years. Poured concrete does tend to crack.

Foundation cracks are perfect paths for water, soil gases, insects, etc. Since foundation and floor cracks may create a real difficulty in the basement, it’s never a bad idea to have the cracks professionally sealed. Basement windows, particularly those below grade come using the high likelihood that water can fill the exterior wells and lead to water infiltration throughout the windows. This kind of issue can be addressed using a brand new window well or exterior drainage.
