I have a brick patio covering my back yard (very small) and whenever it rains heavily I get water seepage into my basement down on the bottom quarter of the foundation wall in a couple of seams. In doing research I have concluded that my problem is due to hydrostatic pressure. I have a two story house and the rain water hits the back of the house and runs down falls on the brick right up to the foundation. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to relieve this pressure from the outside.
I have a bobcat/backhoe available and want to do the job before I put the deck up the end of May. PLEASE HELP ASAP!!! Thanks in advance
