Hydrostatic Pressure in Ballwin, MO
What is Hydrostatic Pressure? In this scenario, it is when water has saturated the ground so much that the water must find somewhere to go. The water will build up a tremendous amount of pressure against the foundation of your home. The water will find its way into your basement in a number of different ways. It can find its way into your basement through foundation cracks, poorly made foundations, and through the concrete due to it being porous.
This type of water damage is not covered by most insurance companies. If you see water in your home following a heavy rain this could be the reason you are seeing the water. If you see that your basement has a foundation crack, get it repaired at your earliest convenience. If you have questions regarding Hydrostatic Pressure give us a call at (314) 858-1688
