Damp basementI moved into a house that has a cement basement that probably was put down over the original dirt floor 60 years ago. When it rains hard water actually bubbles up out of certain cracks. My wife thinks a simple sealer will help but I think I need to re do the concrete. I have dealt with all the drainage issues along the sides of the house which helps a little. Does anyone have any suggestions as I don't think a simple sealer is going to help the situation out.September 26 2007 - US0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
