Fixing moisture prob - who to consult re: at grade slab?
Hi there --
We live in a split-entry house that was built on an at-grade slab foundation (all house levels are above grade, there is no crawl space or basement below the slab on the first floor).
We are having moisture issues in one corner of the house (our first floor MBR) that we want to solve. Nothing drastic like running water, but mildewed carpet (gross enough). We are trying to find someone to consult with who can help us solve the problem, but all the basement waterproofers say they don't work on slab foundations like ours. Who else should we ask?
We've been able to glean from online research that we need to put gutters on the house and regrade the landscaping around this particular corner to shunt water away from the house. So, we're working on getting people hired to do that work for us.
But if that doesn't completely solve the problem, who should we be talking to about what other steps to take? It's our bedroom after all, so we can't just sorta "live with it" like we could if it was a basement.
Any advice most appreciated!
