mystery basement

Posted by Emily on July 7th, 2000 11:18 AM

I know there has been a lot of talk about leaky basements
but I think my basement falls under the category of
mystery basement. We recently bought an older home
with a basement we thought was fairly dry. Well, during
rain, the basement floods! Not too surprising. We checked
all the usual suspects: the gutters and landscaping, but
still the basement leaks-even when it's not raining now!
Could we have a drain problem that isn't obvious? I
don't know where to check next. All the contractors we
have looking at the house want to replace this or that,
but I just want to know what is wrong! We live on a hill
and all of our surrounding neighbors have dry, finished
basements. I would love any help I can get!
