I have a row house in Philadelphia that suffers from constant dampness. I have dehumidifiers running constantly, but really need to address the “antique” foundation. Half of the basement is ancient brick (c. 1890) and half very thin concrete (1-2″). The problem is the there is no way to have concrete poured into the space as it is:
a. set back off the street and surrounded by an iron fence
b. down some extremely steep stairs
c. only accessible from the exterior by two small windows
I don’t think I could even get a mixer in the house and down those stairs.
Any suggestions? Thank you for your time!
