Basement leaking

by Joe Somebody on Saturday, March 19, 2011

Finally got around to ripping out the basement wall. I have not located the leak but I know I am close. I think I have an idea of what is causing it. From the outside I see a small tree growing in the window area. Its about 1-2 inch thick. I would not be surprised if this was the culprit. I wont be for sure until I find the leak. I still have to rip out all of the insulation next.

Im hoping that a good epoxy filler will save me thousands of dollars. I really dont have to have to spend money to trully get this fixed. After I rip out the tree and apply root killer to everything in the area. I hope it goes away. I will also work on the grading of the house. That way water flows away.

I also plan on installing new gutters this summber. They are needed anyway.
