Q: Is a damp basement an indication of a badly built house?
A: Not always. A recent study conducted on homes all over America found that around 86% of cement block built homes over 25 years old experienced moisture and humidity problems. The National Association of Realtors suggests that, throughout the lifetime of a home, just about all will experience some kind of water problem.
