We bought a newly constructed house and moved here two weeks back.
Last week when it rained, there was water in the basement and we saw a crack on the basement wall. We spoke to the builder and he sent somebody who fixed the crack with hydroxy(?) cement, which he said would take care of the water leak.
Last night when it rained again, we see water in the basement today. I am really in a panic condition now as I don't know how I can ensure that this crack is fixed. Also, would like to know what my options are since its brand new house. I spoke to the village building inspector but he told me to talk to the builder. Also spoke with the home inspector (who did the inspection of our house before we closed). The home inspector said that it is a normal crack (he hasn't seen it) and we should'nt worry about it.
I will really appreciate any help on this issue.
