What causes leaking basements
Basements can leak for a number of reasons. In a basement with no real waterproofing in place water will eventually make its way into your basement from the surrounding earth. More often than not though, a leaking basement will be the result of a previous waterproofing system that has failed.
Water leaking through tanking
Tanking with a waterproof cement or slurry is a common basement waterproofing solution - and it can be effective. That said, tanking is susceptible to cracks caused by hydrostatic pressure or vibrations in the ground surrounding your basement.
If your property has experienced failed tanking, it may be time to consider a different approach.
