Pennsylvania is filled with historic homes and a rich past. Towns like Royersford, PA became incorporated back in the late eighteen hundreds.

There are four common sources of water that seeps into basements:
1.) Surface water running down foundation walls.
2.) Groundwater in water-saturated soils being pushed into the basement by hydrostatic pressure.
3.) Storm sewer water from the municipal storm sewer system backing up into the home’s existing perimeter foundation drain and leaking into the basement (this can only occur if the perimeter foundation drain system is connected to the municipal sewer system.)
4.) Sanitary sewer water from a combined municipal storm/sanitary sewer system backing up into the home’s drain system, causing sewer water to come up through sink drains and floor drains on lower levels.
After a thorough inspection to identify the cause of the problem, it can normally be cured with one or more of these scenerios. Foundation Repair, French Drain Installation and/or Installing A Sump Pump.
