"The work took approximately 5 hours to complete, and they told me to watch it closely to make sure that I did not see any additional water leaks in the foundation. I left the area" open (they had to cut out drywall) for two months without incident and then had it redrywalled and painted.
was very thorough in trying to determine exactly where the leak originated before he started cutting into my drywall, which I appreciated. He approached the problem (cutting drywall) conservatively and branched out as needed. I would definitely recommend them.

It’s easy to do, but forgetting your crawl space can have plenty of negative consequences for the rest of your home from poor air quality to high energy bills.

Mold in a basement is a common problem. My company helps people with this every day. Some of the answers you received were helpful but not all the information is correct. First, you need to eliminate the two main ingrediants that mold needs to survive. The first one is water intrusion. This is a must. I am assuming you have no water intrusion as you make no mention. The second componant that needs to be eliminated is moisture. Moisture is also humidity. Basements need to be kept airtight in the summer months. Some folks have posted that you need air flow in your basement. Nothing could be furthur from the truth. When you open any windows for example, not one micron of air goes out of the basement, Warm humid air is sucked into the basement. Houses suck air into the basement and it meets the cool surfaces and skyrockets humidity. The windows must be kept closed and a dehumidification device installed to ensure humidity stays below 60% humidity. The dehumidifier should be energy star rated and purchasing a seperate humidity guage is a must to monitor the unit's progress. We like to keep our customer's basements at 50% humidity. This eliminates the smell that is active mold spore growth. Once the water and humidity is brought under control. Remove the organic materials that have mold on them. Walls, sheetrock and studs that have been affected. Follow the advice of previous posts as you must ensure that you do not affect the rest of the home. Once removed, install new walls using as much inorganic material as possible. We also install vapor barrier over the walls and seal the floors to stopwater vapor transmission into the basement. Poly plastic is not a acceptable vapor barrier. It is not "zero-perm" and will still allow moisture transmission. It will also crack and break into pieces over the years. A PVC liner rated "zero-perm" is the correct product in this application. Depending how large the basement is and if it is sectioned off will determine the dehumidifier strength. We use the Santa Fe line of dehidifiers as they are super energy efficiant and work like a dehumidifier on steriods. I hope this helps and I wish you the best in Basement Health!

Where is the home located, what is the exterior wall construction and type, how is the space heated?

 

It could be a whole host of different scenarios that would generate that result.  It is nearly impossible to tell but I would say that most basement moisture problems are a result of bulk moisture intrusion or condensation issues. 

 

Given the deep and hard winter this year, it could be a condensation issue that hadn't previously been shown.

and his crew spent a couple of days and cleaned up afterward. They were very professional, polite, and the results were very good. No more flooding in the basement during heavy rains.

Grand Rapids Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
came to check our leaky basement the same day - only a few hours after I left a message, in fact. After examining a leak coming in from the foundation wall and the soil buffer underneath it in our Michigan basement, he gave us several options for remediating the issue, including sealing the foundation, building a catch and pump for the water that could come in, and re-grading the driveway. We found the concrete pad on our driveway is separated from the house by about 3 inches, where water is running down and in due to the snowmelt around the house and an improperly graded driveway allowing water to collect at the
Grand Rapids Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
of the foundation.
He said the circumstances of the cold temperatures and rain contributed to the leak, since we did not experience water in the basement during the April 2013 rains and flooding, and that it might be most effective and cost efficient if we repave the driveway in a manner that lays the new concrete against the foundation wall and grades it away from the house. Since we had already been considering re-paving the driveway due to damaged and missing patches of concrete, we decided that was the best way forward. Obviously that meant he would not get our business for the repair, so I appreciated his candor and honesty in assessing our situation and suggesting a course of action that fit the problem.
I would have been happy to pay for the time he spent his consultation with us on a very busy day for him, but he refused and wished us luck on regrading the driveway. He was prompt, professional and more honest than many of the contractors we have worked with for issues in our home. I will absolutely call him in the future if the basement issue persists and I'd recommend anyone call him for a quote and consultation.

For a number of years we had rain water puddle in the basement against the south wall after a hard rain. I took part of the drywall out near the floor to see what the problem was and discovered a vertical crack in the poured concrete wall. We did not want to have the finished interior wall removed to fix the crack from the inside. We had

The end result was okay. We had problems after they installed the sump pump--some pipes were not connected, and with all the rain we received, we had a problem, and the alarm was installed too low on the sump pump. We had to call them to come out twice, and they did come out each time to correct the problems. We would most likely investigate other companies in the future before using this company again.

Brown's efforts to assess my basement situation involved banging on the floor with a putter from my golf bag. He banged the floor so hard and so many times (I actually thought he was trying to break the floor to necessitate repair) that it broke my putter in two. This wasn't a problem, until he canceled his commitment to advertise. I'm now out the revenue from his ad and am out one putter. This is a typical business that

So when he hands you his card, and you see the little fish in the upper right corner...it should mean "something's fishy" about this alleged Christian. Indeed, I advise those with basement leaks to avoid
