Moisture had been seeping into the basement through the foundation of the house. In addition to having modern gutters added to the rear of the house, we have cleared the ground-level, brick gutters in the front. We hope we may be able to use these gutters and preserve the historic look of the facade. We intend to remove soil mounded around the house to cause the grading to slope away from the house. We may also install French drains in several spots.
