    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!

    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.

    Post some pictures of the outside of that wall where the grade meets the wall.
