Question DetailsAsked on 10/5/2011

I need advice and estimate(s) on water proofing the outside walls of my 2 story rectangular shaped brick ranch home1960gr. floor is basemen

Main floor is 5-6 steps above ground. Back wall of basement has about 4 feet of ground against it for about 3/4 of the length...the rest of that wall is open and has under main floor 1 car garage, entry door and with 2 windows in side wall which meets level of driveway (no ground against that wall).
front and other side wall have 5-6 feet of ground against them. The house is about 50 X 30 feet. Would a helico pier support effort be advisable after removing soil against front and side wall to base and then laying a base of gravel topped with 4 to 5 in. nylon web covered plastic drain piping which is led away from the front and side walls of the house to a lower section of the lawn. Or should the order of repair be reversed?
