Wet Basement Quiz Question 2

by Maureen McCabe on January 11, 2008

We had lots of rain last night.  How’s your central Ohio basement?  Sump pump still running?

This is the second in the series from a spam email from a water proofing / basement contractor.  I had never heard of him before.  Again no credit to the spammer / contractor but he’s an author… he wrote the book on dry basements.  I suppose you should be able to find him if you are impressed with his answers:

“Question #2: Which Basement waterproofing system is better inside or outside (full excavation and tile replacement) ?

Answer:  Neither, both systems serve individual purposes. Interior de-watering is sometimes the only option due to external excavation obstacles. In many cases it is often the least-expensive cure for a big problem. Most inside contractors however leave out some of the most critical steps that are essential for long-term, hassle-free correction (please refer to my book the Super Dry Basement). Exterior systems are necessary in certain circumstances. In many cases of especially old foundations or in cases of crumbling, buckling, bulging, or bowing basements it is absolutely essential for long term correction.  Most outside contractors however leave out some of the most critical steps that are essential for long-term, hassle-free correction (please refer to my book the Super Dry Basement).”

Maybe this is legit? Or maybe not.  Maybe I should take the email spam more seriously.  Nah! 

Anyone outside Central Ohio… most homes in Central Ohio have basements.  We have heavy clay soil so eventually many people have basement issues.  A lot of basement issues  have to do with maintenance from my limited understanding…

When you buy a home in Central Ohio it is important to have it inspected.  The home inspector can explain any water, settling, sagging, cracking visible in the basement.  A good inspector gives the buyer a heads up on what maintenance is required to keep the  basement dry and problem free.
