I have cross-posted this on several forums due to the fact that I need a solution quickly. Weather forecast calls for continuous rain over the weekend and I can't spend all day vacuuming the water.
Hi, I have a basement leak where the water appears to be coming from above ground level. It starts from the ceiling of the basement and runs down the side of the wall and pools at the bottom. If that is the case, then the water must be entering somewhere on the roof, running down the entire length of the house, and ending up in the basement. This is isolated to one particular area in my utility room, spanning approximately 6-8 feet in length.
I have tried:
1. laying a tarp in front of problematic area outside of the house (when I didn't notice that the water leaking was above ground level)
2. cleaning the gutter all around the house.
Neither of these solved the issue.
I have attached pictures.
Anyone have any ideas as to what the problem is or recommend any solutions.
