How to Manage Moisture in Old Basements
Watch Fernando Pagés Ruiz, Guy de Verges, Lance Lang and Andrew Zoellner discuss basement waterproofing methods for old homes.
Sponsored by Drylok
Water and moisture problems are common in many basements, but if you’ve lived in a pre-1950s home with a concrete block or natural stone foundation, you may know those problems better than most. In this webinar, our panelists will discuss mitigating moisture and waterproofing issues in basements and crawlspaces.
Presented live on March 9, 2022
In this roundtable seminar, you will learn:
- Methods for stopping water outside, before it penetrates your enclosure
- How to direct and distribute water when it does get inside
- Practices for sealing your basement or crawlspace so it doesn’t introduce moisture to the rest of the home
