I just bought an old house (built before 1900) with some foundation issues including deteriorating mortar and some settling. There are some 1st floor joists that need reinforcing or leveling. I will need to make sure the foundation is solid before I start renovating the rest of the house.

We have 2 floor drains in the basement that this is the 4th time since we have moved here once last year and 3 times this year where the water backs up through those drains. We have no permanent sump pumps installed. We are thinking that it is tied to a field tile and it is plugged somewhere.

The original house built in 1958 has had tile put around the entire foundation and the foundation has been re-enforced. An addition was put on in the mid-60s and there is no basement and no tiling. Where these two meet I have water coming in. No a lot, but when it rains 20-30 inches in a month, it gets the south and east portions of the basement wet. I do not have a sump pump.

With the flooding in Grinnell over Memorial weekend I had major back up in my basement. Now that I have everything away from the walls, I see that I have some major issues. I still have a lot of items in the basement, but everything is away from the walls so it is visible. I would like an estimate as to what it would cost me to have my basement waterproofed the correct way, so I won't have to worry about water. I understand that you can't guarantee against sewer backup (which is what I had), but if I could have the rest of the basement waterproofed, that would be a great improvement. Thank you.

We have a wood foundation. The east wall has been gradually leaning in since construction in 1997. Can this be fixed and how much would it cost?
Vicinity of Fairfield Street in Grinnell
I have a basement that is wet when it rains and stays damp year round. Floors are poured and walls are blocks. No sub-pump just a floor drain in the 3/4 bath area. Would like to make this a finished basement but need to get the wetness taken care of first. Can call at anytime.

During the very bad storm two weeks ago I received a good amount of water and dirt into the basement. Upon inspection by the insurance agent an external source of concrete tilting was identified as the cause of directing water into the basement. But, upon further indoor/outdoor inspection by a concrete contractor he determined that there was serious cracking of the basement wall on the south side of the house.

I currently have a Sump-pump drain system, but anytime we get a heavy rain, water seeps up through a crack in the floor that is in the center of the basement.
Vicinity of Spring Street in Grinnell
After two days of rain (March 7 and 8), I have 5 inches of water in my basement and rising. In 9 years It's never been this bad, and spring hasn't started yet. It has stopped raining, and I'm hoping the 2 drains in the floor will start doing their job. I don't have a sump pump. I've had water before, but never this bad.
