April Showers bring .... basement flooding
While this spring has been relatively dry, springtime usually brings lots of rainfall and late april and early may is typically the time of year when the groundwater levels are highest. These two factors work together to cause groundwater intrusion and basement flooding.
The problem with wet basements (aside from the actual damage caused by the water) is that each case is unique and there is no one solution fits all. For some people, installing a sump pit and a sump pump is all the is needed, for others, hiring a basement contractor will fix the problem. For recurring persistent flooding issues, a site-specific engineered solution may be what is needed. An engineered solution can target the cause of the flooding and address it at its source.
Norfolk can design an engineered solution to keep your basement dry throughout every spring. For more information or to speak about your specific problem, please contact Mark S. Bartlett P.E. at (508) 747-7900 extension 131.
