Is Your Basement Flooding in the Winter or Does Your Basement Experience Flooding in the Spring?

The likelihood of basements flooding in the Winter and the Spring depends mostly on Mother Nature and the weather patterns.  The condition of a basement and the home’s foundation will however determine whether or not water leaks into a basement. While basement flooding in the Winter and Spring may not happen on a consistent basis, basements do flood during the Winter and are more prone to flooding in the Spring.

Basements Are More Likely to Flood and be Wet with the Following Seasonal Instances

Basements are more likely to flood in the winter when the snowfall is high and deep and the ground has been frozen on a steady basis  Rising temperatures that cause fast snow melts, and the melting snow itself, can create rivers and streams of free-flowing water.  This flowing water can enter a basement and cause moisture problems and in extreme cases, flooding.
One of the biggest factors in causing basement flooding during the Winter and Spring is an unusually heavy or persistent rainfall. When it rains in the winter and the snow is deep and the ground is frozen, the rainwater has nowhere to go. Rain and snowmelt travel along the path of least resistance and that path is often straight down to a home’s basement and foundation. Even homeowners with basements that have never had water problems can suddenly find themselves with a flooded basement.

“I just had a sump pump and drain system installed in my basement due to flooding. Liam and Joey showed up in the freezing cold and worked all day to get my sump installed to stop the water. When they came back to put in the perimeter drain they were very courteous, knowledgeable and professional . They answered all my questions and did an amazing job. Thanks Liam and Joey!!”
