split level basement. 2 French drains. 2 sumps, 2 backflow check valves from storm and sewer. Still got an inch of water in the storm in late august. Water wept in through the cinderblock which covers the difference in depths between the 2 basements.

S. Bates Street in Birmingham
We have water seeping in our 96 year old sub-basement. It is coming in when the sprinkler system is on but there is no leak in the sprinkler system. I feel it is coming through the foundation and that the weeping tile is no long functioning well. I do not want to dig up the front of our building and am looking for a better and less expensive solution. We are a non-profit organization so I must be concerned about the best and least expensive way to go. Thank you.

Dorchester Road in Birmingham
Our 1926 house has wet walls in some places in the basement. It is most damp on the outside corners where we have 2 large trees out front. In the past we have painted the walls with a cement paint. The paint is becoming lose and when I started scraping I found the block underneath was damp. After a heavy rain yesterday, the block was wet closest to the floor. No pooling of water inside. Some black mold in the corners where conditions are most wet. I sprayed those areas with bleach. We have used your company on our home Up North and wanted to contact you again for this problem. We would appreciate an evaluation on site and a remedy for our problem. Thank you.
