Our bungalow is 22 years old. We have a basement leak on the north wall of the home. The water is coming in at the top of the i-beam that runs the length of the house. Runs down the column that the ibeam sits on and puddles on the floor (finished rec room). We have had the outside of the house dug out right down to the weeping tiles, had the weeping tiles checked (no issue with them) and then a rubber membrane applied to the foundation from the weeper right up to where the poured foundation meets the brick of the home. When the hole was dug initially there were no apparent signs of a crack. The water is still coming in. We are at a loss to know what to do next.
The problem started in December, 2008 at Christmas. We had torrential rain and the carpet in the basement was wet. We took the rec room wall down, removed insulation, and that is still where we are at time time, almost a year later. We did have a new roof installed in July, 2008. If there was an issue with how the roof was installed, is there any way water can run down the inside of the brick, between the brick and the framing of the house and be coming in at the top of the i-beam? Any comments or suggestions from anyone would be appreciated.
