finger spaceA lot of people don’t know this but between your homes exterior brick and foundation wall there is a void. The bricks do not touch the foundation wall. We call this void a finger-space. Water likes to travel between this void entering in from one area and traveling through the void. This means that just because your seeing water entering an area inside doesn’t mean it’s actually entering from the outside in the same area. Remedies for a water filled finger space are quite easy and usually treated with simple solutions that other companies don’t want you to know. Punching a small hole in the lowest point of the brick from the outside and inserting a drainage pipe is a very simple and inexpensive trick that will redirect this water out of the finger space void and back outside.
