Default leaking foundation

Hi everyone

I noticed some leaking coming from the basement after the rain. Looks like rain water has seeped through the foundation.

Any ideas how I could fix this?

Seems like something I need to hire a professional to do, and can be quite costly...

Thanks!

Paul

You better call a professional and NOT a contractor l;ooking for some work.

You are just seeing the water coming in or showing up under the "drywall", which not where the leak actually is since water always migrates.
