This leaking foundation is actually getting the outlet boxes wet!

Lots of rain coming, Northern Virginia and Maryland! If you have a leak in your basement and you need straight answers as to the cause Basement Detective is your BEST bet!!

Lots of snow and now possibly rain!
This is a dangerous combo as regards basement leaks. 
Please clear your basement door area so the drain can flow. 

Rain on snow can also cause leaks much higher up like on siding or at windows. 
Please remove snow from around your house perimeter if it is above your siding.

All too often foundation repairs fail.  Why is this?  Well, foundations that have cracked through normal settling will continue to settle long after the crack repair has been done.  
In the picture you see a crack that had been repaired once, re-appear as the house continued to settle over the following years, allowing water to once again flow in the basement.
If you aren't sure what permanent, guaranteed crack repair is all about, perhaps you could give us a call!

What's up with foundation cracks?
Does the picture show a serious structural problem or perhaps something not so serious....?  If water is coming through the crack, especially when it rains, what are the repair options?  What kind of guarantees can a repair company offer?  Will re-grading help?  
For answers to these any many other questions, call a pro!
