5歲家庭地下室的臥室中有滲水,仍在家庭保修下


0

我有一個出租物業,大約5年新。地下室是地下的一半,地面是水平的,沒有傾斜。租戶一直注意到,在下雨期間,水從邊緣滲入臥室地板的速度很慢。前4年沒有投訴。建造者懷疑堵塞了哭泣的瓷磚,但尚未檢查。基金會洩漏仍在保修範圍內。它是由信譽良好的建築商(我認為)建造的。幾個問題:

  1. 即使堵塞了哭泣的瓷磚,我也應該期待地基始終是水密的而不漏水嗎?
  2. 或者預計如果插入了哭泣的瓷磚,它將滲出。
  3. 如果插入的是哭泣的瓷磚,這是否意味著地基洩漏保修不適用?
  4. 基金會滲漏保修何時適用?
  5. 我是否應該提出保修索賠?

編輯:我應該補充一點,我懷疑是在物業內有一個污水泵,用於帶走排水。建造者說它正在工作,所以這不是問題。我自己沒去過這家酒店,因為它是一個外地出租單位。

Yes, file a claim against the warranty AND file a claim with the local Contractors Builders Board (CBB). It may be called something different in your area.

All contractors are required to be licensed with the CBB in their state. If you don’t know how to contact them, ask your local Building Department.

The CBB will assign a claim number and help mediate a settlement.

I don’t know how the contractor would know why it’s leaking due to a plugged drain tile.

Moisture is either coming up from below (a rising water table) or its coming from the surrounding ground water in the saturated soil, or both.

If it comes up from a rising water table, it will enter the living space from below through the crack between the foundation wall and slab.

If it comes from the surrounding ground water, it COULD enter the living space through the wall, especially if the EXTERIOR side of the foundation wall is not sealed properly.

Either way the moisture enters the living space it will need to be collected and disposed. I think the best way to collect it is on the exterior side of the foundation wall in drainrock and a perf pipe laid 6”-8” below the interior basement slab.

To keep the subsurface water from seeping through the wall, I recommend installing a moisture barrier on the exterior side of the foundation wall and install a 2” thick plastic mesh on the wall to allow water to flow down to the perf pipe. If dirt is allowed to be backfilled against the wall, the dirt could hold the moisture giving it a chance to seep through the wall.

Once collected it needs to be disposed by extending a solid pipe over an embankment or in a collection well and pumped away.

This may be the most expensive method of solving the problem, but it’s sure to work.

Note: I would start a journal listing the dates of the leaks, estimate of quantity of water (location and size), pictures documenting extent of leak, and weather conditions (amount of rain per day, etc.).
