Water has many methods of entry: Over the top of the foundation wall, through a cavity in your walls, or from under the floor. All of these are common occurrences. Fortunately, our Projects Managers are trained to examine all possible angles to make this sure this problem is solved for good.
Directing water away from your house is never a bad idea. Solely depending on such a thing to solve your problem, however, is a bad idea. There are usually many factors that contribute to basement water seepage.
The easiest tools to use for determining if your house is in need of structural repair are your senses. Look around for any cracks. Pay attention to doors or windows that are becoming increasingly harder to open or close. Uneven floors, foundation cracks, faulty looking exterior brick, and other warning signs are all things that a Project Manager should take a look at.
All cracks are grounds for water seepage. After a while, the water will erode a crack and weaken a foundation. Fixing your cracks quickly is the best solution.

Efflorescence is the proper name of the powder. Efflorescence is a small lime deposit that is seen as a warning sign of moisture problems in the basement.
