Fixing your wet basement now will save you thousands later
When a house is under contract for sale, the buyer will usually retain the services of a home inspection company to report on the overall condition of the house.
The home inspection is a comprehensive exam of the building from roof to basement and everything in between.
If there was ever a wet basement problem the Home Inspector will find it.
If you want the house to be easier to show and thus easier to sell, you should have the wet basement made dry and healthy before the house is shown.
A wet basement is fixed with a French drain and sump pump
A French drain is installed underneath the basement floor on the inside perimeter of the wet basement.
The French drain system relieves the hydrostatic pressure (water pressure) from the footing area.
The water enters the sump pit from the perimeter drains of the French drain, and then the sump pump pumps it up and out of the basement.
