Problem: Concrete Front Porch is hollow underneath. A family of skunks has moved in and the basement wall is leaking when it rains heavily.
Evaluation: Backfill from the basement foundation construction has settle over the years. This open cavity is even larger underneath. Water from a close by gutter is collecting in gravel landscape rock then running into this even lower spot under the porch. This water could be the source of leaks in the basement or unnecessary water flow through your drain tile.
