Hi, my house was built in 1964. It is quite likely that no work has been done on the foundation since it was built. During inspection, we were told that we have to correct the slope to send water away from the house, which is fine.
But should we do more? One contractor told us that we need to redo the French Drains and redo the waterproofing/membrane around the house (20,000$). He looked hard and found tiny spots of mould in the basement (which is at least 7 feet deep).
Any opinions on this contractor's suggestions? How can I tell if the foundation needs to be re-waterproofed? It's not a cheap job, I'd much rather redo my bathrooms :)
