Project Location: Amherst, NY
Basement always gets water in it from heavy rain or lots of melting snow. Patched a spot myself that it was coming in badly, and it just comes in through other spots now. Assuming its the same issue as my neighbor, who had all weeping tile replaced (i think) from you guys.
