• Your homes guttering can only handle the water coming from your roof – not from the surrounding rainfall nor will it address any waterproofing issues of the basement itself.
• The more water that saturates into the soil surrounding your home then the more hydrostatic pressure that is applied to the foundations cracks and joints. Especially if the soil next to the foundation is not sloped or graded away from the property, water will seep into any of those cracks or porous building materials and leak directly into the basement.
So you can see that regardless of where or how well your gutters are directing water, without a proper water management system from within, there is nothing they can do to prevent basement flooding.
