Re: Wet basement with stone foundation help


Here are some pictures of what i am dealing with. These were taken after a few days of solid rain. You can see the moisture on the floor, and also the two openings where water enters.

You have more than enough posts to put up pics. Possibly doing something wrong.

Re: Wet basement with stone foundation help


IF you want dry storage, run a 60pt dehumidifier w/pump,,, cheap on eBay,,, damp always runs to dry much as cold always runs to hot - its physics + God's Will

Re: Wet basement with stone foundation help


I must be doing something wrong or am blind.

I wish i could screen shot my screen, becasue there is no paper clip for attachments. Also at the bottom of the page where it shows my permissions, the little posting rules box in the bottom left corner, it states i cannot post attachments. Frustrating

Stadry, i was looking into the dehumidifiers. I found a danby 60pt for $130. Any experience with these?

Thank you both

At the bottom of the "quick reply" box do you have a "GO Advanced" button?
Hit that and you should see the paperclip. If not, PM administration.

Re: Wet basement with stone foundation help


I have a stone foundation with same info, thanks for this info because I'm really torn about how close to dig beside foundation

Often they are literally just that - laid on the ground. In your digging, you will want to avoid disturbing or inadvertently undermining any of them.

Re: Wet basement with stone foundation help


on occasion you'll find houses with no foundation but they're built on piers w/no (or small) rooms underneath,,, lateral soil pressure causes walls to move to NO pressure side,,, our 1865 upstate house had a small storm cellar but was built on piers,,, no foundation per se - instead the walls were laid local stone about 3' deep

Re: Wet basement with stone foundation help


Would you have felt safe digging beside the foundation or would you be concerned with settlement
