My house is concrete block - stucco on the outside, plaster on the inside (no insulation...but that's a years-down-the-road fix). I do have a water/foundation issue on the west side. The land slopes TOWARD the foundation three feet from the house, so water will sit against the foundation after heavy rains. I'm planning on fixing that by bringing in topsoil, and grading away. The first floor is about 2 1/2 - 3 feet up from ground level. on the inside of the northwest corner (my kiddo's room), the wall is frequently damp to the touch. Not beads, like condensation on a glass, but evenly damp. Occasionally growing a bit of mildew. I've been taking an old towel to it, and dry it off/removing the spots with no trouble. My question is - can I assume this is related to the water touching the foundation? That the cinderblock is somehow wicking the wetness up and through? And do you think this will go away after I regrade?
