Hoping you can help assess our crawl space as we are looking for renovation options!

I own a duplex and one side leaks. The other side is completely dry. Looking to waterproof exterior to the foundation base. Thanks for your time. Chrid
Vicinity of Franklyn Street in Dartmouth
Need someone to give a quote ASAP -- We have an inspection that reported the following: Front left corner foundation potentially exposed to frost, footing is visible. Recommend further evaluation/solution by qualified foundation/engineering contractor to protect foundation from potential frost damage. Holes in foundation for passage of wire requires caulking. Blue Skin covering at back below deck at old window opening should be shielded from potential water intrusion from above.

I need a sump pump and would also like to talk about weeping tile
Vicinity of Sinclair Street in Dartmouth
You reinforced (I use this term lightly) my basement wall and covered the walls with a covering in July 2016 . . all good. I would like to you check on this previous fix and check on the following as well well . . .water is coming into the basement slowly in three corners, with snow melt, rain, etc and I would like you to look at this and see if there is a solution. Also, is there a covering that you put on the outside foundation for looks as well as possibly stopping filling/covering cracks where water may or may not be entering . .it is a OLD foundation.

Hello! We would like an assessment/quote for our exposed exterior house foundation, which has degraded significantly in one corner, possibly due to lawn drainage issues. Thank you.

I have water entering my basement during the winter when ground is frozen and major rain storm from east direction. About a bucket of water each time.

Hello, I am buying an older home with a crawl space basement. Some of the support posts in the basement are not level anymore causing uneven floors. I'm looking for roughly how much it would cost to jack up/level these posts. Thanks, Emily
Vicinity of Oakwood Avenue in Dartmouth
We recently had a flood in our basement. We have a sump pump, but we're not sure if it stopped working or whether the water was too much for it to handle. Our insurance company had contractors in do to emergency clean up and repair. They ripped up the floor and removed cabinets, baseboard and some drywall where there was water damage. We figured now would be a good time to contact somebody to figure out how to solve the issue, rather than simply replace our basement only to have it flood again next Winter/Spring. We'd be interested in getting a free quote/estimate to see what it would potentially cost to solve the issue. Please contact me at your earliest convenience. Thanks, Mark
Vicinity of Wanda Lane in Dartmouth
We have a finished basement and water recently appeared under the flooring approximately 10 feet from the outside wall. The damage is confined to a space approximately 5' x 5'. The side of the house the wall is along has no eaves and there appears to be water stains running the length of the foundation. The house is approximately 50 years old and we have not had water in the basement since we purchased it 6 years ago. However, the water appeared after an exceptionally heavy rainfall that lasted for two days. We would like to determine whether the remediation requires a french drain or new weeping tile or something from within the house.
Vicinity of Birchdale Ave in Dartmouth
We've had water in our basement 4-5 times this winter. We've had the house for five years and it's only ever happened one other time about 4 years ago. The house was built in the 60s. It is a low-lying area. Our walls are insulated with a vapour barrier, but, for the most part, not drywalled. The insulation is not getting wet when water comes in and there does not appear to be moisture at all being the vapour barrier. The water is coming in at several different locations, three different sides of the house. We have a drain, but the entire basement doesn't slope to it so some water pools around the edges. Half of our basement is finished, and there is one spot in the finished section where water is getting in. We want to finish the whole thing eventually and want to know what our options are for preventing future damage.

Wet carpet in the middle of our rec room in our basement.
Vicinity of Woodside Ave in Dartmouth
I have a mid 50's home, and there is a very old drainage system in the basement. It is a concrete foundation with a trench like system dug along the parameter of the basement inside, which then leads to a drain (a hole in the foundation with no sump pump). On heavy rainy days, this trench fills with water and slowly drains to the drain. I am concerned that one day this trench will not hold up the rain fall and flood my basement. I would like to get a quote on potentially getting some weeping tile installed on the outside parameter of my house, or any other options that would guaranty my basement would stay dry. Thanks
