Question on waterproofing basement
Hello-My husband and I bought our house going on 4 years ago. Lately, we have noticed more water problems in our basement. It's not standing in many places, but it is definitely seeping through somewhere. My husband wants to bring in dirt and slope it away from the house-which I think is a good idea. The part I'm not sold on yet is adding the plastic below the dirt-about 2-3 inches below the soil on top. He wants to do this all around the house. I worry about the flowerbeds. Any thoughts? Suggestions? We're open to any. We've had about 5-6 guys out to look at it and they've all given us different suggestions to get rid of the problem. I want to try the dirt, since it sounds like the most logical and cheapest bet. I just don't want the plastic down, which would prevent growth of flower beds! Any help would be appreciated-thanks!!!
