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.

Basement Waterproofing reviews in The Dalles
We had severe water problems during the extremely wet spring of 2014. Once we began calling drain tile installers after the flood waters subsided, it became clear that you'd be lucky to get a call back at all, because most companies were booked out for months and literally could not answer the phone.

After accepting the offer I received a thorough letter explaining the work to be done and what we needed to do to prepare. On the day promised, the crew called ahead, and showed up on time. The crew put up plastic to control dust as much as possible. The installation -- including jackhammering, removing a massive amount of concrete and installing the drain tile, sump basket and pump, battery backup and vapor
As the job was just completed, I have not seen the sump pump work in a heavy rain, but the quality of the installation work looks excellent.
The only problem that occurred actually turned out to be a significant benefit to me. After the first day of work, I noticed damage to a basement window that the crew used to pass tools and concrete through during their work. On the second day, one of the workers took photographs and I got a call from
