I have been remodeling a home built in 1987 just outside of Atlanta Georgia. My contractor told me he fixed the water problem by sealing the outer edges of the foundation which slopes badly. Today the flooring people pulled up the floor to find more moisture than before. I am out of money and seriously frustrated. Can any one offer suggestion as to what is going on and how To fix it.
You have a serious problem that you need to consult a soil hydrologist about.
The sign of a good gardener is not a green thumb, it is brown knees.
First off you should find out from what source the water is coming from. If its just groundwater then it may have been a mistake by the contractor to just water seal the outer foundation walls when a more serious requirement of digging around the foundation and installing weeping tile to fix the water problem permanently.
A contractor who specializes in this work can better tell you whether this is needed and the likely cost involved.
Some seals work well when applied in the manner that was done but if the problem resumes then you must look to a better solving.
