Default Water coming in at base of house in garage...

Every time it rains heavily, we get some water seepage into the garage along the bottom of one wall. We don't have gutters along that wall. Would adding gutters fix it or do we need to dig down, expose the wall and seal it? Thanks, Kaci

Hello Kaci:
The key word is 'seepage'. In that case the gutter may be all you need and it will certainly be easier than digging down.
