Basement Dampness
 
1 Attachment(s)

I have an older home with wooden support columns on top of concrete pilings. After all the rain we have had in the Northeast recently, I noticed that the bottoms of some of the columns were damp and this is not the first occurrance. The (3) columns appeared to be wicking water through the concrete piling. Is the cement too old and porous? Should I be worried about this?
