Water leaking ,rotten wood in Crawlspace of basement Please contact me ASAP
Project Location: Vancouver, BC
Laneway house build (780sf) has a small crawl space that I don't think has the adequate foresight from my contractor / architect to address humidity, radon gases, temperature. Currently the city has required me to have a fresh air vent installed which I think is the stupidest idea. Would really appreciate your expertise in possibly helping me encapsulating and installing a dehumidifier.
Project Location: Vancouver, BC
We have a crawl space and would like to have it looked at for possible cracks and issues. We are aware of a couple areas where wet soil in present and don't know how much of a concern it is. Would appreciate an inspection and proposal for any repairs needed.

We discovered black mold in a few areas in our basement. Our basement was fully renovated in late in late 2018, during which some water was in one corner. We then had professional services to replace part of the drain tile in May 2019. Starting about 1.5 months ago, some black mold started to show in a few areas on the baseboards. We would like your service to help identifying the cause. Thanks for your assistance in advance.

Hello! Interested in a more powerful dehumidifier, preferably one that drains on its own. We're away camping next week, but would love to chat next Friday (July 23). We moved in last Nov and noticed quickly that it was too humid (towels would not dry, salt clumped). Bought a good sized dehumidifier that we move from one side of the house to the other between morning and night and empty almost every day. It's sort of working, keeping it around 50, but we'd like a simpler solution. Thanks!

Today we discovered water in our basement for the 2nd time within 2 years (after living in this house for over 20 years). It appears to be coming up from the floor. We have had a lot of rain recently (but Vancouver often has a lot of rain!). We need diagnosis and treatment here asap!

Since August, we have noticed occasional wetness on concrete at the base of an interior wall in our townhouse furnace room.

Hi, Discovered I had a flood for possibly weeks and recently called a Restoration company to come in and extract the water out and cleaned out the mold. There was a burst in the water main line. Crawl space consists of a wooden beam right in the middle of the crawl space and goes straight across. I believe it is what holding the middle of the house. The beam will need to be replaced. Please call me back at your convenience. Thank you, Jason

Heavy rains and worried wife!
Project Location: Vancouver, BC
Hi, We have a requiring flood in our sunken patio and basement. We are looking for a permanent solution. In the past we have been able to fend of the water by pumping out the patio. This last rain proved our stategy ineffective. I believe this time the basement flooded independently from the patio. As the water was higher inside. I think we need concrete retaining walls on the patio and also a sump pump installed in the basement, but that is just me guessing. We need some professional advise. We'll probably also need some restoration help. Not sure as the situation is still developing.
Project Location: Vancouver, BC
I'm the president of our strata and manage the maintenance in our building for the last 8 years. We have long term water ingress problems into our parkade mostly from a "failed" sandwich slab in the parkade ceiling. I'd like to meet with one of your reps onsite at 943 W 8th before Christmas to tour our drainage problems to develop and a scope and cost estimate for a wish list of items to do this winter and into the future.
Project Location: Vancouver, BC
We've had a basement leak which seams to be coming from the foundation and is coming up in several spots, mostly along the west wall. We would like to find out costs and what would be involved to try and fix the issues.

I have a leak in my finished basement foundation. It only leaks in the winter with heavy rain. There is water damaged and perhaps moldy walls and floors. Need to find and fix leak and replace some insulation, drywall, baseboards and carpet.
Project Location: Vancouver, BC
Need to have a portion (400 sq ft) of a basement concrete slab waterproofed and new flooring installed. We do have two sumps, and a very large damp storage area also, so I'd like to have overall suggestions, however the damp in the floor is the current #1. Approximately 4 years ago we had a plumber dig a trench in the slab to run a new water line. Speculation...It would appear a membrane was protecting the slab from damp... and this must have been torn during the dig... We proceeded with our DYI project. We reinstalled the existing underlay (a pressed-board product) over the ruff slab and installed a new vinyl floor. 6 months ago we realized that the floor was getting soft. Last month I had to remove a damaged vinyl plank and saw that the underside of it was moldy and the 'underlay' was mushy. I'd like to have all the vinyl and mushy underlay removed. I realize the slab will then need to dry-out. Before I even think about new flooring I want to be sure that we take the proper measures to waterproof.
Project Location: Vancouver, BC
We have experienced several floods in our basement recently. The water is coming through the joint where the floor slab meets the foundation wall in two locations in our basement. This happens when we have heavy precipitation. We are very confident that this is due to high water table issues. There is history of underground streams in our neighbourhood. Can you come take a look at suggest solutions. Sump pump solutions etc ?
Project Location: Vancouver, BC
We have water ingress into the elevator pit, before we attempt more repairs to the pit we would like to reset the drain slope and seal the perimeter of the entrance areas where water is seeping in at ground level.

Water accumulation (1/2") in lowest part of crawlspace (where water heater and heating system are mounted) only after torrential downpour. Water disappears (seeps back out) when the rain stops. Some air bubbling apparent in one spot when water is present. No obvious foundation crack in that area. Would like to get quote for diagnosis and remedy.

We have water leaking into a finished basement from the side of the house. All inside fixes have not worked thus far, so we think we need something done on the outside of the house. We get most of the neighbour's roof's water as his drainage system is not working.

I am finding that the moister levels in my crawl space have increased, as items stored down there are now containing mold. I'm looking at what the costs would be to get a dehumidifier installed, that can pump the moister out of the crawl space. I did have a leak down there a year ago caused by a backed up pipe and incorrect plumbing. This has not been resolved but there probably is excess moister as a result to this. The home is about 3 years old and the crawl space is in very good condition.
Project Location: Vancouver, BC
Dampness along top and bottom of foundation wall at front of house.
Project Location: Vancouver, BC
Moister/water is seeping into the basement in a few spots where the foundation wall meets the floor. I just had the exterior perimeter drain replaced, and the problem persists, especially following the recent heavy rain in Vancouver. The floor slab seems to be low relative to the bottom of the walls.

Hi, I'm wondering about humidity levels in the basement suite of my house. The humidity is usually 65%. If I set my 25-pint dehumidifier to 50%, it will run all day without turning off. If I turn off the dehumidifier, the humidity jumps back to 65% after a couple of hours. Is the moisture coming in through the ground? Are there any easy renos that would solve the problem?

Hello, I am planning to build a 3-level house and a laneway house at the above address.

My son moved to our (finished) basement two years ago. His room is about 12' x 12' (maybe a bit bigger) with two windows on the west wall that open to the west. This year he has restarted his aquariums, which has (in our minds) made his room way too humid. We are therefore thinking about a de-humidifier for his room. Is this something you do? Thanks in advance!

Hello, I would like to have someone come to have a look at my crawl space. In the area underneath my living room gas fireplace, parts of the insulation have turned dark. There is also a bit of moisture behind the vapor barrier. I am not sure how long this has been a problem. I had my house inspected when I purchased it a few months ago but the crawl space was cluttered with stuff and the inspector was not able to properly inspect the area. Thank you.
