I have noticed a small amount of water in the rear corner of bedroom. It appears to be seepage from recent flooding due to hurricanes.
We want to try and seal the exterior of the foundation, but I am not sure about the footer. Before I dig myself to death, I am wondering how far down do you need to apply the sealer? Down to the footer or should the footer be sealed as well?
This is a 25 year old single story house with no basement. There is aprx 6-8" of exposed concrete above ground. There is aprx 8-10" of burried foundation before you hit the footers.
I can't be sure where the seepage is, but we had gotten 20" of rain in 2 days so I believe the seepage is occurring near ground level.
Below is link to photo of the rear corner of foundation:
Second question is what brand of masonry sealer is best? I had heard Dry Lock, but I hope someone might know what is best.
Thanks for any suggestions or help!
