What is the name of your state?What is the name of your state? West Virginia
I recently purchased a brand new home in July - new construction - over 400k house. Since then we have had all four walls of the unfinished basement leak, water leaks from piping coming in the house, water coming in from basement door, and water coming in from under the garage door. Water is also seeping up from the middle of the concrete and looks like spots. Now, the home inspector said this happens a lot and is normal when it rains. I beg to differ. It is a new home and a very expensive one at that. The builder just caulked the edges of the walls, but water is still coming in. He painted a few spots with paint, and water is still coming in. This is a good ol boy state and I know he will not fix the basement correctly, and if he has a contractor come in to fix it, it will also been done incorrectly because it will be by someone who does not deal with wet basements. We did an at home water test and it came back at 10 pounds of moisture per sqaure inch. What am I to do now?
