Foundation Repair Case Studies: Water Damage Solutions in Carrollton, Ohio

Thursday, July 22nd, 2021 by Cheyenne Brown

Challenge

A 1950 home in Carrollton, Ohio was seeping water into the basement following heavy rain. The water was coming in from the corners and at the base of the foundation walls. There have been mold growth on the walls and the room appears to be damp. There are not any cracks or bowing in the wall, though. This created confusion with the homeowner because she did not know where the water was coming in from. The confusion is what influenced the homeowner to contact The Basement Guys for professional help.
