Ask your basement waterproofing contractor these key questions.
Here are the pros, cons and costs connected with the various basement waterproofing methods.
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.
Basement Waterproofing reviews in Grand Rapids
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.
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.
