Out of sight, out of mind: Don't ignore potential problems with your basement or foundation. A professional explains why it's best to be proactive.
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.
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.

In fact, as I get ready to sell this house 5 yrs later, I am having
The crew arrived on a weekday morning but I wasn't given an exact time but luckily I work from home so I'm flexible. The crew leader came to the door and explained they would get to work. I inquired as to whether he would be sealing the vents in the house (it was on the estimate) but he seemed confused and said it wasn't necessary. However, after a phone call with the office, it was determined that it was necessary. Another worker came in to seal the events but also mentioned that a window would need to be opened to bring in an air tube. I asked for him to give me a few minutes before opening the window so I could put my cats in a safe place (otherwise they might have escaped) and he responded "That's okay, I'll guard the window". To me this was very unprofessional and I was not about to risk my cats getting out so I ran around my house frantically to get them in a safe place (all while I should have been at my desk working). If I had been notified earlier that this was going to be the process, I could have had this taken care of.
There were a few other hangups such as having to come back a 2nd time to remove mold that was overlooked (the employee they sent out didn't seem very knowledgeable and had to call the office for my questions). At this point, I'm not sure if all the mold was removed effectively. This employee also brought along an "air scrubber" which I truly believe should have been in my house and running during the actual mold remediation instead of during this removal which took the employee all of 5-10 minutes. My house smelled like dirt for almost 2-3 weeks afterwards and upon research, this can sometimes be the sign of mold and as of today, almost two months later I still smell occasional dirt smells.
Overall, it was a very frustrating experience. $3,200 is a lot of money to me and I felt like the project didn't go smoothly and I'm not confident with the work that was done. They were kind enough to give me a $125 break for the frustration but I'm more worried about quality of the work that was done and I can only hope I won't have to have mold remediated again any time soon. I wish I had gone with one of their competitors.
I could tell that
battery powered is fine. Can you guarantee in writing the 7 day life? Nope. Ok so I have to take his word for it.
So we look at the existing sump pump. There's a cover on it and we can't figure out how to remove it. I explicitly say I'll get it removed before work starts. We're going to draw up the contract, but
Next night, no show and no call. I call him later and he says (paraphrasing) that
I thought I had found someone to do the installation, now I have to go back and find someone else, get them to come out, etc. Total waste of my time.
I marked "D" for responsiveness and professionalism rather than F because they were responsive during pre-sales.
The above is expressly my opinion based on my experience, your experience may be different.
now as dry as it has ever been . Thanks to
advice he saved me thousands of dollars. His company will get my recommendation
for anyone looking for help with water issues involving their basement or foundation.
