The most common factor are; congested weeping tile system – where the weeping tile can no longer flow due to a blockage of debris. Other potential reasons include horizontal or vertical cracks in the foundation, separation of concrete foundation blocks, or voids where the foundation and footing meet. Many foundations were never waterproofed properly during the construction process, especially older homes and buildings.
The reasons to waterproof are to – eliminate water seepage, and moisture in a basement and to stop mold and musty odors and other allergies.
