PLUGGING GAPS If water is making way to your basement through gaps and cracks of any pipes then plastering them can be the hack. Make use of cement to cover the cracks and smaller holes. But when there is a whole lot of water seeping in from the floors or any other place plugging gaps cant stop the water from protruding in your basements. CROWN RESTORATION If water drips from the walls even after plugging gaps then probably the reason is lack of proper drainage. Your house should be made on a slope also known as the crown place. May be with time the soil below have dropped to a lower level causing the foundation and crown spot to settle down. Non-existence of slope cause issues in drainage. You must restore the slope as soon as possible.

FOOTING DRAINS: Water seeping inside from the walls or seams is may be due to hydrostatic pressure. This pressure pushes the water to the floors from the ground. Thus you need to check for any cracks or issues with your foot drains. And if found get it fixed right away. CURTAIN DRAINS: The houses which do not have foot drains curtain drains do the work. These drains help in diverting the underground water that is traversing towards your home to the outside sewer or public trench.

PIPE CLEANING: Sometimes clogging or accumulation of unwanted materials builds up pressure in the pipes. This also results in water seepage. So get your drainpipe cleaned and free it from any clogs and blockages so that it can carry water away from your house. GUTTER EXTENSION: You can easily add gutter extensions to your basement to keep water away from it. You can use metal or plastic ones for the same. But you may accidentally run your lawnmowers over such gutter extensions and cause them to break. Thus underground drainage pipes can serve to be a more feasible option.

PUMPING OUT WATER: When you do not have control over the outside water that is creeping in your basement then you have to take charge from the inside. You can consider pumping out the water to save your basement from suffering from water-related issues. A sump pump can be installed inside which can help in shooting the water out of your house.
