We have a self-adhesive membrane on the outside wall of our foundation but the water enters through the joint between the walls and the floor. How can I waterproof this? The house is only 3 years old so the French drains shouldn't be clogged, though the ground does not slope away from the foundation so we know we will have to change that.
My basement is smelly and humid, what can I do about that?
