North wall on inside of blocks, has approx. 6" wide, sometimes 1/2 inch deep water.
Approx. 75' of north wall and around 10' long water problem (same as above) running along east ant west walls.
I notice this problem after a heavy reain. 2-3". Also recalked all windows and this help some. House is built into side of hill with the north wall having earth a depth of 21" from the footer up to surface if yard.
In inspection of blocks, brick work starts at around ground level, by digging earth away from blocks reveiled hat they were not painted with a moisture barrier of any kind.
My plan is to get a structural engineer to inspect and write up report so that I can put out on bid. But I estimate I can do work for around $1,500. if the fix is.
a. trench our from footer to top of ground.
b. Apply some sort of water proofing to foundation.
3. Put in pea gravel and perferated hose for drainage.
