    I know, right? I was traveling in Tennessee, and did a major doubletake when I saw that magazine cover in an airport store.

    Thankfully that's the best pic of Courtney Love I've ever seen, so I'm not totally insulted! But in all honesty, I DO see the resemblance! Weeeird! Though hopefully one day I will myself grace the cover of a magazine (though not likely Spin magazine).

    Has anyone ever fixed a leaky basement (without spending $10,000 on a French drain)? I've tried downspout extenders. I think I'm going to extend them another 8-16 feet. I have a couple other ideas. I figure I have about a year of troubleshooting in me before I spend that much money on a French drain. That's my last resort, obviously.

    All this snow just melted and came in the back corner of my basement. It's such a headache...

    why pay someone to dig you a french drain? if your limbs work.. and you can get stone, piping and digging tools.. you can do that yourself. Its not a tough design, just going to take some muscle. There are also paint on type sealants that you can apply to the basement walls and floor that keep the water out. The block is porous.. so even though you're draining off most of the water if the ground gets saturated enough it will still get through the block and floor. My parents had this problem for years until they sealed the basement wall and floor surfaces even with drains and gutters in place on the outside of the house. Its nutty to watch the water wick back up through a supposedly solid concrete floor.

    My family owns a steel construction company. I can get a jackhammer and pretty much anything I need. However, I think when it comes to jackhammering the perimeter/footing/foundation of your house...you should leave it to the professionals. I mean, I'm pretty handy but I'm only 27...and frankly, I just don't have the balls to do something of this magnitude. Most contractors will subcontract this out to a basement waterproofing professionals as well...which tells me that if contractors aren't even doing this themselves than I probably shouldn't either.

    I found some cheap DIY solution on Basement Waterproofing Products & Information | DIY and Professional Contractor Waterproofing Supplies that I may attempt first. Pretty ghetto but if it works that's all the matters.

    mess with the foundation? .. yikes.. nah shouldn't have to do that to build a french drain system. How far out is your overhang? The building I work in is new and recently they dug a french drain to relieve some pooling water near and around the foundation. Its about 18" out from the base of the structure. Just far enough to cover the area where roof runnof lands.

    I'm not much older than you are (31) .. just remember spending lots of summers with friends Dad's that were (some still are) building contractors doing basic labor.. man I dug alot of holes and moved a crapload of stone.
    I dont ever remember messing with the actual foundation or slab (depending on what type of structure) .. I do remember digging lots of trenches, checking for pitch, laying stone/pipe/more stone till level and that was about it. We just made em functional, the landscapers would make them pretty. Quick google search I found this

    How To Create a French Drain System

    Thats how I remember doing it, just on a larger scale for some sites.

    were you thinking of putting the drain in the basement? like floor level? That I can see definitely taking much more intimate knowledge/skill and alot more work. I'd leave that to a pro too.. no question about it. Simple ground level french drain though.. easy do
