Will the basement of a new house stay dry?


I often hear homebuyers ask how they can be sure that a newly built home isn’t going to have water issues since there isn’t a history to rely on with the new home.  What people should know is that a well-built new home is your best bet to be a dry home.


I visited with Bethesda new home builders Dave and Steve Welty and asked them to show me around a couple of the new homes they are building.  Dave and Steve care deeply about the quality of the homes they build, as I've heard from dozens of people who own a Welty home.  I asked Dave and Steve to show me what they do to make sure the houses they build never have water issues.


Here is the video


The Welty brothers are great guys who build great houses and they stand behind their work 100%.  I will be happy to show you in person the quality of their work.
