Century old homes with stone rubble foundations can be really charming and a reminder of our historical past, but they can provide a real challenge for the present-day home owner.
Trying to control ground water infiltration through the stone rubble walls as well moisture migration from below the floor can often be more than a mere nuisance. Dampness, cold, mold, mildew and a musty smell is often very much part of the enigma.
The extend of the problem depends on many conditions such as height of water table, type of soil, site grading, condition of the lime mortar and depth of the basement.
Cochren Foundation will work with each home owner to quickly identify the contributing factors and provide a permanent solution using modern technology and products.
