This family has been dealing with this for the 7 years they have lived there. The family plans on staying in this home for a long time and is also concerned about mold. There has been property damage to the items in the basement from the moisture. Frontier Basement Systems had gone out to take a look a few years ago but life happens and the family was not able to move forward at that time. The long term plan is to finish the basement and have one company take care of the entire job is important to the homeowner. Keeping the WHOLE basement dry ALL the time is the goal!
