Oh man thats not good at all [:@]Dam buckeye i hate hearing that, its not a finished basement is it? [X(]carpet?? My Dad had this problem when i was a kid, it had to be a toad strangler first but we would be running the shop vac on the carpets for days []
No the basement isn't finished... Just concrete floors and block walls....

I did have a bunch of stuff I had to throw out that I had down there.... Nothing important but was a pita none the less with it all wet....


Now that avatar is fit for a "king"! lol

Bailed, Pumped water out of my Dad's basement when I lived at home. I Hate Basements[8D]I guess that's why I live on a hill and don't have a basement

I'm glad you caught it early Scott and kept ahead of it.

That's one thing I'll never worry about. I'm high on a mt/hill and even though I get run off, my excavator did a fantastic job or making sure it goes around the house. The drains are made to take it all away and I have Superior Walls, bone dry! I knew I wanted to finish it.

In my old house, I had to take a day off in 96 when we had 20 some inches of snow one day and 60 deg weather the next. I had to buy a pump and keep ahead of it.

The only way to really fix this.....is to excavate the outside of your foundation walls and waterproof it, correctly. That's likely what was suggested for the $18K figure, above. I've had to do it on construction projects.....and while it's expensive....it's the only real way to stop it.

Sorry this is happening, Scott. We got lucky with ours. it's 30+ yrs old and dry as a bone.

My walls are waterproofed I have the walls "tarred" and from the top down I have 2 foot of topsoil and than gravel down to the footer drains....

My block walls were dry..... well,above the 7.5 inch flood line any how

All my "flooding" comes up and out of my sump wells. This home was built in 1982.

*EDIT* I just reailzed you were talkign to Pat... My bad [8D]
