My wife and I just moved into our home less then a year ago. We live in the northeast, and after the two heavy snow storms in March we started getting water in our basement. Not water up to our knees or anything, but none the less, water. It would seep in through where the walls meet the floor, and also in the middle of the basement, seem to come from underneath the ground on up.
We first hired a drainage "expert" who installed new downspouts and cleaned out all our drains. This did nothing, as we still received water.
Then we hired a water proofing guy who installed french drains in our backyard, and added tons of soil around the exterior of our house. Still getting water, while not as much.
What more can we do?? We've already spent a couple of thousan dollars to no avail, and I'm getting (aside from broke) tired of things not working for us. Any suggestions at all?? Please advise...thanks,
