It’s about 6am in Evansville and already 73 degrees. I’m sitting on my screened in porch trying to figure out how my son and I are going to survive the day.

I'm in the midst of some major remodels in my investment property, an older Owensboro, KY home. My husband and I have been planning on these repairs for a while and we have a budget set up for each repair: refinish the wood floors, paint the exterior of the home, landscape the backyard, waterproof the basement...

Whether it's from spring melt, rain, or a broken sprinkler system, Evansville basements are wet right now. The most common spots for leaking include the walls and the seam where the walls meet the floor slab. For many homeowners, there is no point in any given year where their basement is dry. When a space is constantly wet like that, it's the perfect recipe for a mold disaster and it makes a good portion of your square footage into useless space.

It was about 7:30 on a Saturday morning and I'd just gotten my son dressed and was going to start some laundry. I walked down the stairs to our finished basement and my socks were soaked as I stepped on the carpet. The entire basement was leaking and the carpet felt like a giant sponge! I went over to the utility room to check the sump pump and the pit was full, but the motor didn't appear to be working.

I realized just recently that I can’t imagine putting all of the “first” things into the same regular Christmas box and put it in our dirt crawlspace for another year. I know that our crawlspace isn’t a safe place to store things. We have groundwater intrusion seasonally and that crawlspace is nasty. Every year, one of our Christmas memories succumbs to the mold and mildew—this year, it was our Christmas tree skirt.

One of the most common complaints in homes with crawlspaces and unfinished basements is cold floors. In the past, cold floors were addressed by shoving fiberglass or similar insulation between the subfloor joists. Initially this seems like a great solution. The insulation will help keep the floors warmer, right? Unfortunately, that isn’t really the case.
