Does any one have suggestions on this problem. We just had a bad rain storm, but prior to that had a good amount of snow. Our basement gets small puddle of water. I am moving the tile to see if there are any cracks on the floor. So far I am 1/2 done but no cracks on the floor. The water does not to see come from the wall but the walls has drywall and painted. I am planning to use dry lock paint? for the floors . I think they are meant for the walls. Someone at homedepot stated that his mother did this. Any thoughts on this? My next plan is to make the down spout away from the house. We have a french drain system but it does not seem to do the trick. I guess a sump pump will be the last resort. But prior to pump, will try to grade the lot.
