Hi All,
As some of you might be aware - DH and I were inspecting our "to-be" home for moisture in the basement.. so the result is out..

bad news - there is some mositure present - but it is present in the unfinished basement
good news - from initial inspection, we are told that it should NOT be major as it is not affecting the finished part of the basement.

Now, we are looking for folks/contractors who can help us get an estimate on how to fix this.
If anybody can help us with the reference of a good contractor who has had basement moisture fix experience that will be really great.

Always appreciate the help we get from this awesome group! Thanks !

Moisture Loc, Waterproofing and Foundation Repair I've seen this place around. I don't have any experience with them, but it may be a start

BEFORE you spend a ton of money "fixing" moisture issues below ground, you should really address WHY there is moisture.

95 times out of a hundred you can fix moisture problems by addressing SURFACE drainage. Clean and tune gutters, downspouts pointed away from the foundation and good drainage swales.

You are right - we had a guy come in and who said exactly the same thing ! Thanks again.
