Basement problems not to be easily solved...

Saturday, June 28, 2014

Had landscaping done in front of window that leaked, but will need to get someone to close up the window area with glass blocks and cement to prevent further leaking.

The company who does water proofing of basements said our problems were not be solved by drain tile since water was coming under the chimney in the fireplace in the basement and also our driveway slopes towards the house so probably will have to have some work done on the driveway and garage floor before the water problem would be solved.

The "estimator" suggested I just sell the house as-is which is something I have been thinking about for several years.

I think of my house as a "money pit" and some houses in the area are being torn down after being sold because there are no vacant lots available for new construction.
