It's that time of year again,heavy downpours and leaking basements. Any hints or tips on hydrostatic leaking on older homes aside from the usual exterior fixes. Clients budget dictates trying to fix from the inside out.I know it"s ass backwards but thats what I'm faced with. Have already used a rubberized paint on sealer to good effect on the walls,problem is in the cold joint between the foundation wall and the footing(I'm assuming). I was thinking of chipping out a small grooved trench,filling with hydrostatic repair concrete and then going over it with the rubberizing paint a couple of times.Has anyone had any succes with this method, or will I just be creating a problem elsewhere? PS. I know about downspouts and drainage... looking for an inside fix ...if there is one. Cheers.
