We all want a nice warm and dry basement. It is the Holy Grail for Manitoba homeowners.
The rec room, the family room, the man cave; whatever you want to call it we spend a lot of money to develop our basements, but sometimes not much thought goes into how we keep it from becoming the dark, dank, dreary dungeon-like the basements that many of us grew up with.
We ask a lot of our basement walls.
They have to maintain their structural integrity in the face of temperature extremes, huge swings in moisture conditions, etc.
We all hear stories about the infamous Winnipeg soil conditions. Clay rich Manitoba Gumbo.
