Chapter “An Introduction”

Welcome to Wet Basement Wisdom

Wet Basement PhotoI’m glad you found our website, This site is exactly what it claims to be, a resource dedicating to solving your wet basement problems, crawl space moisture problems and more.

My name is Josh and I  created this resource to help homeowners confront their problems and find resources for waterproofing a basement or waterproofing a crawl space. Neither project is very fun, both solving your moisture issues is crucial for the safety and longevity of your home.

After my wife and I purchased our first house (originally built in the late 1800s), we were greeted with a few unexpected problems. One of those problems involved a flooded crawl space, serious mold issues, and the need to replace not one – but two – hot water heaters.

Needless to say, becoming first-time homeowners was more than we bargained for. In fact, in the midst of all our troubles, my wife even said to me:

Maybe we’re not cut out for this home ownership stuff.

Well I have good news. We’re still homeowners today and a wet basement or wet crawl space doesn’t have to ruin your life.

I’ve set up this site in a book format. If you go to the top left corner of the page, you can browse through each chapter using the numbers or the drop down menu. Regardless of your problem, you should be able to find the answer or resources that you’re looking for. Some of the topics we cover include:

My schedule is rather full at the moment, but as I get more time I hope to develop additional chapters as well as instructional videos.
