Older home (60+) The most important issue is the basement/crawl-space foundation. This is related to the bent metal siding outside. A contractor needs to come in and look at the entire problem outside and inside. There is a definite possibility of leakage / possibly mold etc. The home is a small 2 bd bungalow. (about 800 sq ft), the crawlspace would be maximum 600 sq ft. The ceiling in the crawspace is approximately three & a half to four feet high.
The next most important issue is the sump pump issue. The same contractor could give you a price on re-doing your sump pump / water heater drain. Finally, the bathroom wall needs to be dry-walled and tiled approximately a 4 x 5 foot area beside the tub - this item is not critical to the sale.
I AM LOOKING FOR AN ON-LINE ESTIMATE ONLY. I have an offer to purchase on the home which expires on Wednesday. It would need to be extended so an expediant reply would be appreciated.
The basement floods during downpours probably due to tree roots that have comprimised the weeping tiles along the north side of the house. This is a more than 10 meter section of the house that lies next to an unpaved driveway (easy access). The weeping tiles are connected to a sump pump located outside the exterior basement door where the water is then pumped to a dry well further back on the property. The sump pump is brand new and is working (I can tell by where the overflow comes out). The gutters overflow in heavy rainfall but are clean and working. The soil is sandy and the driveway is merely compact granular B. Normally the whole property drains in 15 minutes after a rain fall and has no standing water.
During really heavy rainfalls - fast and hard - the basement now floods in a single location along the north wall. Last time I could see water bubbling up between two tiles along the floor in the bathroom. The water does not come for awhile after the rain starts and then appears all of a sudden. There is suddenly a lot of water that comes very fast.
So something is overwhelming the weeping tiles, either just too much water for the sump pump to handle though it never floods it's well or catch basin, or more likely the weeping tiles have been damaged by the row of trees that are on the other side of the driveway. I need a quote(s) on repair work.
Short story, the basement is leaking and I have isolated the leak to a 5 foot length of the basement wall. I would like ths fixed asap.
Our finished basement had water coming through the cracks of our laminate flooring. I traced the leak to the bottom of our foundation walls in one particular corner, the corner where the floor is at the highest elevation. The leak seems to span a length of approximately 5 feet. As the basement is finished, I cannot tell for sure if the foundation is cracked or otherwise. I was really hoping I don't have to take down the drywall. To add to the complexity of the project, our backyard has a deck and the corner that is leaking is unaccessible by tractor, from what I can tell.
There is a rather large pine tree on this corner as well. I don't know if the leak is a result of a root pushing into the foundation wall, I would suspect it is quite possible.
Thank you, Chris.
We just bought this house and have been in it for 2 months. In the last few storms we noticed that our basement is leaking along one wall. Thankfully there is no carpet in the area it is linoleum tiles (many of which I have removed because the water has removed the stickiness. In cleaning up the water we noticed green and black mold growing in the drywall and floor boards. We have young children and are afraid for their health as well as ours. I am looking for someone to solve the basement leakage as well as remove the mold. Thank you.
I am looking for a quote.
Need the back yard grading changed to slope away from the house. estimated the footage to be about 27' x 20'. Need basement window wells installed in order to change the grade. For the window wells, two windows are involved, not sure if one window well for both windows would do as they are close together.with approx. 22" seperating the windows. The windows are indentical and each measure about 30" wide and about 12" high.
Need either a full foundation waterproofing or select digs to repair cracks and prevent water leaks so that basement can be refinished without the worry of water damage. Budget would obviuosly have to be higher if full dig around foundations as it would likley have to be done by hand due to clearance issues for machine on two sides and for getting a machine in the back (link-detached home). It may not be necessary to dig all around the house , however, assuming you need to go around three sides (not the front or around the garage) the dig would be 29.5' x 24' x 29.5' . A dig around three sides would also mean the air conditioning unit would need to be disconnected and perhaps raised off the ground with the regrading taking place?
Should a dig all around be needed or recommended, a porch in front of the house would need to be moved out of the way (about 8.5' x 4'). For a full dig all around the dimensions would be 11.5' x 19' x 10.5' x 29.5' x 24' x 48.5'. I suspect a full dig around the front and garage may not be required, however, if it is, the 11.5' x 19' x 10.5' could be reached by machine.
Submitted timeline says 3-4 months, however, I'm anticipating in the spring due to the current time of the year. Also note the budget was assuming crack repair only, not full digs, obviously the cost climbs for a full dig for either the whole perimeter of just the three sides.
As mentioned above this past winter and whenever it rains water seems to be leaking into the cold cellar below the front porch. This was my first winter in this home, my home is approx. 31 yrs. old from what I can see the previous owner try to fix the problem by sealing the left side of stairs that is attached to home. The cold cellar was converted into a laundry room but was not done properly so, my intention was to redo the cold cellar into a proper laundry room this summer. I know nothing about water leak/damage and every time it rains the front of my home takes a "beating". The front porch is approx. 4' x 6' with 7 steps. Also with fixing the water leak I would like to refinish the surface of the porch/stairs since I will be enclosing the cold cellar. If at all possible I would like to make sure that the water leak stops forever. In terms of the cold cellar I would like to use wood/drywall materials that are moisture/mold resistance also plumbing/electrical needs to moved around. I'm pretty much looking for a permanent fix since everything will be enclosed I won't be able to see any future water problems until it's too late.
