You can repair basement leaks yourself, but you will need to know a bit about home renovations. That’s because a basement leak can have many different causes or sources and each one requires different skills to repair.
Of course, most basement leaks happen through the mortar and concrete that make up your basement walls. Repairing a leak in your basement wall will likely involve the following:
Water in your basement does not mean you have a leak in your basement. Water that gets into holes in your roof can find its way down to your basement.
Door and/or Window Repair
Often basement leaks happen through improperly sealed doors and windows. Repair can be as easy as re-sealing the door or window. However, you may need to replace the door or window to fix the leak properly.
