Potential basement water damage
A basement provides additional space that a great deal of homeowners really enjoy especially here in Michigan. Moisture can be a real problem for many basements and dehumidifiers for basements is a necessity to help over come moisture.
While there are advantages to having a basement, there are also risks that homeowners should be aware of.
By nature, a basement goes against certain building principles that are put in place to keep homes, and their occupants safe. When water, and more specifically rain water flows, it follows the path of least resistance to its final destination. Since a basement is nothing more than a fancy hole in the ground it is often the preferred location for excessive rain water to settle. Due to this fact, builders have developed elaborate drainage and sump pump systems that take the water that flows into your basement and pumps it away from the structure.
