Brewster Rockit: Space Guy! (8/4/10)

I’ve spent hours gutting my basement this summer and have come to the conclusion that water is hard to control. From the looks of it, rain had been seeping into the finished basement for years, causing the drywall and wood frame to become moldy. But before those can be replaced, my wife and I will need to waterproof the basement. That means sealing cracks on the interior and exterior to prevent seepage, installing a backup sump pump to protect against power outages, and praying that the sewers in our neighborhood remain intact. That’s a lot of variables to deal with, especially when confronting something as persistent as rainwater.
