What to do if You Have condensation in the Corner of the Basement

Question

A few years ago, we had a builder construct our house in the woods. Part of our walk-out basement is exposed. We had a Superior Wall System installed, but there has been condensation in the corner where the basement is exposed to air. We’ve tried using a dehumidifier, and have the downspouts taking all water out into the woods, but nothing works. What do we do?

Answer

Superior Wall Systems are made to collect water that trickles down a wall, and usually drains into a sump-pump. If water is weeping inside of your house, a mistake has been made – either by the builder or the Superior Wall Systems company. Send both parties a certified letter clearly outlining the problem and stating that it needs to be looked into and fixed immediately. Keep a record of all work that has been done and copies of any letters you send out in case any legal action needs to be taken.
