In Response To: cement basement ceiling (joe snover)

Joe ------ My experience has been that it is almost impossible to stop water from coming in by patching or sealing. Where is the water coming from? Is this leak from the foundation or from a plumbing leak or a roof in need of repair? Try stopping it there.

The ceiling crumbling is another problem. Is this a concrete ceiling, thus posing a structural concern, or is it drywall or plaster and thus only a cosmetic concern?

Good luck and let me know if you have any questions. Roger
