These homeowners contacted HomeSpec because water was seeping into their basement at the joint where the floor and wall meet, but also through the concrete block walls. After an inspection by their project manager, it was clear that the basement needed to be waterproofed to stop the water intrusion. There was no sump pump or any type of drainage in place to prevent a full-on flood.
