What Causes Water Problems in Alabama?
Water leaks into a basement or crawlspace through any opening it can find. This includes cracks in walls, floor, and the joints. Water can even leak through the concrete itself. This is why basements and crawlspaces are notorious for being damp and humid.
Alabama also has shallow bedrock, seasonal high water tables, and massive clay subsoils. These circumstances cause a lot of basement and crawlspace water problems in Alabama homes. Check your basement or crawlspace for some of these signs:
- Bowed walls
- Foundation cracks
- Water seepage and stains
- Musty odors and mold
