I had water leakage issue in my basement. Looking to investigate causes of the water damage.

Wet/damp basement floor after rain
Project Location: Halifax, NS
I need an estimate for installing a sump pump, and interior weeping tile / trench, and finishing off the concrete slab. The old owners left an extension without concrete. Shouldn't be much demo because the floors and bottom 2 feet drywall demoed from the damage.
Project Location: Halifax, NS
There are weak spots in our floor so I removed the floor boards and found a rotten and moist subfloor. I'd like to find out how water is getting in my basement and then prevent the water from getting under the floor in my basement before I relay the flooring.
Project Location: Halifax, NS
From inside the utility area in the basement, some excessive flaking and scaling were observed on the foundation wall, as well as the presence of effloresce.

Old basement watchdog sump pump not working properly. think the pump is fine but it is running constantly unless unplugged. not sure when it was last serviced, we've lived here 2 years and haven't had it serviced. don't know when it was before us. probably never.

Moisture floors and walls some mold
Project Location: Halifax, NS
The back of our house has an un level floor that bows, and our home inspector mentioned we may have dry rot in our joists. We just bought this house a year ago but the structure is almost 80 years old. Would mean a lot to know if the structure is still sound or if it needs reinforcing and how much this kind of work would cost.
Project Location: Halifax, NS
I'm not sure if this is something you folks can help with but I have a vertical structural beam in my basement that has a long crack running down it, I'm not sure if it needs to be replaced but I would love for someone to look at it. Thank you
Project Location: Halifax, NS
Hydrostatic water coming in a the bottom corners all around the basement. Not enough to be a huge problem, but enough to prevent finishing. Just looking at our options. Thanks!

We have an unfinished basement a lot of humidity it's eating away at the foundation creating also some mold looking to reduce the amount of humidity rising into the house and fix some of the foundation looking for someone to come by for a quote and to discuss possibilities! Thanks Mj

Hi, my foundation parging is cracked and coming apart. Just wondering if someone could come take a look at it and let me know repair solutions. Thanks.

Hi, I'm looking for a quote/walkthrough for our basement, which (I assuming like most Nova Scotians right about now...) is flooding. There's a corner of our foundation that leaks with tremendous force when it rains heavily (we've got a video from this morning if that's helpful). Can you let me know what other information you'd need from me to get started on a quote? Thanks so much! -Amelia

Musty /damp smelling basement does not get wet
Project Location: Halifax, NS
Like many in Halifax, we were affected by the flooding. Looking to improve the basement to keep water out in case it happens again. A sump pump might be the solution, or perhaps you have other suggestions. Please let me know if you can come by to discuss.
