I have water coming in from the driveway area through a crack in the foundation. What do I need to do? My property is in Hamilton, Ontario.
Thanks Frank. I have sent some photos
Best thing is to repair from the exterior; remove the driveway and excavate to the bottom of the foundation. Then V out the crack, clean apply tar and 2 coats of dampproofing to a clean dry surface or. If you want some additional insurance you could apply a torch-on membrane or a dimpled plastic membrane. The driveway should have a bare minimum 2% slope away from the foundation. Epoxy injection from the interior is not recommended.
