well, it's raining here (no big surprise) and I finally have gotten a
chance to observe the beginnings of the water intrusion into my
basement, rather than coming home and finding a puddle on the floor.
I've localized the water entry to two places - one, it's coming in
underneath a window that's hidden under my deck, and two, it's also
coming in through the wall somewhere above the bottom of the floor
joists for the first floor.
I know that the window needs to be addressed by a professional (or at
least a DIYer more experienced than I.) I suspect that the other water
is coming in behind the large board that's attached to the outside wall
of the house to support my deck. I'm thinking that flashing between the
decking boards and the framing is probably the answer here? Any
tips/how-tos on how to do this on a brick wall? I was planning on
redoing the decking boards anyway next year so this is not a huge deal.
