We'd like to do some basement remodeling but the previous owners once had 12 to 15 inches of Red River flood water downstairs. Probably the water came in the high hopper windows, as the fairly level yard had about five inches of water. The main floor, 12 inches above ground level, stayed dry. Would building 24-inch-high cement walls around the window wells keep the basement dry?
