Contractors say homeowners with this trait are the most satisfied with home improvement projects.
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.
If your basement floods, two critical questions need quick answers. First, where did the water come from. and second, how much will the basement flooding cost to fix? Here's what you need to know.
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 Dover
Called another company which came out the next day and discovered it was a faulty furnace connection that dumping water all over the floor, and were given some tips about landscape grading which would help as well. When I asked about the rusty carpet tacks (which was the supposed red flag), it was explained that the strips themselves were not rotted which would have been the telltale sign of actual water seepage. We were told to keep an eye out on it and if we decided to have the basement waterproofed later that would be an option but it was not necessary now.
Action Waterproofing did schedule the appointment promptly and the guy did show up on time--so at least that's something. Did NOT appreciate the hard sell or being talked down to since we are first time house owners.

After all the digging was done, they regraded the area and seeded with quality seed which quickly grew back.
We have had problems with our basement leaking for many
years. A few years ago we had two estimates to see what it would cost
and we were floored with the prices. Needless to say we didn't get the
work done and decided to live with it. The water problem not only got
worse, but the cracks in the walls also seemed to get bigger. We knew
we had to do something.
After calling four companies to come out and assess the
problem, we had a good idea what we were in for with price. Each
company had their own ideas and solutions. We chose to use Family
created the best experience for us out of the group. Not only did he
spend the time to teach us about our issues, he was the only one that
genuinely seemed to know what he was talking about, (I work in
maintenance/construction). He was the only one that looked on the
outside of the house and he even water tested our foundation to recreate
the problems. His price was also in line with the other companies, so
the choice was easy.
On the days of the work,
were very professional. The work was very labor intensive and we were
shocked with the final product. We have since had some weather and we
also ran the hose in our worst spot...still bone dry. We would highly
