I can tell you that my basement before sucked....It was damp wet, nasty AND stunk, but now it is clean and dry as a bone

Well worth it to do it right... I also rebuilt two of the walls down to the footer in the process and added an egress window for a future bedroom so it was a hell of a project

Re: Water In Basement


If this is a new built and final grade wasn't done yet and if the gutters not installed yet, it could be just that, the water not being diverted away from the foundation and gets in somehow. Don't matter at this point if you have a perforated pipe installed or not if there is no sump-pump that pipe doesn't do any good.

Hard to say anything without any pictures

I can relate to that kind of satisfaction, but in a different way. We had a wet basement, and I crack injected them all, applied foam board to the walls, foamed the rim joists..and it's now dry as a bone and very comfy.
