Who is the duty expert on water intrusion?


Quote:
I've said this on other threads, but you can get someone to come in (I use a plumber) and camera-scope your french drain/weeping tile system (that is on the outside) and many times via the drain access on the inside. It may tell you something and may not - but for $350 it's a lot cheaper than tearing down decks and such.

Check it out; if your weeping system is blocked or non-existent, it'll tell you that. But IMO it's money well spent as it might just pinpoint a local problem that can be fixed relatively easily. At least get their opinions...
Thanks for the idea. It makes sense.
