After getting rain, I get water in my basement beneath my window well where the concrete floor meets the cinder block.
There is no window well drain and a crack beneath the window well implies some sort of undesired issues have occurred since the home was built in 1960s. I dug up all the gravel and dirt in the window well to test drainage and confirm where the water was coming from. As you’ll see in the photo, the window well is flush with the patio that has settled over the years and the pitch is now toward the house, specifically toward that window well.
Any thoughts on how this can be alleviated? I want to get a new patio with a pitch on it that drains water away from home rather than in the window well, but if this will not remedy, I would like to address the issue first. TIA98FB6E0F-03AA-4C42-917E-20A285D25212.jpeg
