High Water Table:
Water, will contribute in raising the water table around your home. This will result in a build up of water pressure against the foundation walls.
As the ground settles around your home, your foundation can shift or develop cracks. The exterior parge/coat can open and crack and give water an entry point to enter your home under the floor and walls.
When water comes in contact with a porous surface like a concrete block wall, it’s natural for the water to be soaked up like a sponge. This continuous pressure will cause the walls and floors to store this water like a balloon, ready to burst.
The greater the level of moisture and water building up around a home, the more the pressure on the water to find entry into the home through cracks in the walls and floors. Initially, this water may enter and stay in the block or in the pores of the concrete. That is what causes discoloration to walls and allow them to be wet and damp
