Basement Leaks in a Finished Basement
In a finished basement, most basement leaks will be discovered in the form of a wet carpet, buckled wood or laminate flooring, discoloured baseboards, and visible mould on the lower part of drywall (typically small black or brown spots at the bottom of the drywall board. Contrary to popular belief, basement leaks do not usually result in wet or stained drywall except at the very bottom. This is because the drywall is usually several inches away from the foundation wall itself due to the wall framing; therefore, water attributable to a true basement leak runs down the wall and pools on the floor before a puddle becomes visible or before the drywall has an opportunity to wick the water, or the paint on the baseboards can discolour. Quite often, people discover basement leaks when they step on a carpet in areas in which they do not typically walk.
Basement Leaks in an Unfinished Basement, (Saint John NB)
In an unfinished basement, leaks will cause discoloration or staining on the foundation wall itself. In addition, visual evidence of dried puddles, sediment or mineral stains, and water streak marks on the floor are usually visible.
