“Could it be a drainage issue?”

“Dear PoPville,

We have a 1930 rowhome and have been experiencing issues with our basement rear entryway. Although we do not seem to have any moisture issues in the basement itself, the entryway always seems to collect moisture and the bricks on all sides of the entryway appear wet at all times at the very bottom.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why this occurs? Could it be a drainage issue? Or perhaps an issue with the pitch of the backyard?

If anyone has any experience with this issue and what solutions they were able to find to mitigate the problem, we would greatly appreciate it.”
