Installation of french drain in finished basement
Irene was gracious enough to flood our basement. We dont have a sump pump or anything similar. So we need to get that taken care of. I have had 3 companies come out to look at what we have. All prices are in the same ballpark.
2 of the companies say that I can leave my exsisting wall up (finished side of basement) and install the french drain, the other wants me to cut out about a foot of drywall and remove my bottom plate on my wall.
my question is, can i get away with not removing the drywall and bottom plate or should i remove it? Either way it is going to get done, but i wanted to see if any of you have been through this.
