What Causes High Leaks?
Almost all water seepage and leaking located high on the wall is the result of improper grading. Window wells can also factor in, corner downspouts that have been dislodged, and concrete that is pitched towards the house can also be causes..
Establish and maintain a pitch of 1-inch per foot extending from the wall of the house out, as far as feasible. Downspouts and sump pump discharge pipes should also extend as far away from the foundation as possible. If water seepage continues to occur high on the wall, even after the proper pitch has been achieved, please use the contact us form or call (262) 781-4045.
