My garage always gets water into it when we have rain or a snow melt and I was wondering what do to about it...
The contractor who poured our pad did not put any slope on it, so water just comes in around the doors or from the car and sits on the floor instead of running back out.
Also, the 2x6 walls don't appear to have any gasket material under the bottom plate. The walls are still empty - no insulation or drywall over them. Outside is sheathed and covered in vinyl siding.
The pad is 24'x32' and we've got three single doors on the north side.
Is there any way to keep the water from coming in the doors that won't interfere with their operation?
Is having no gasket under the bottom plate a big issue or will sealing along the inside seam with caulk take care of the small amounts of water we get in under the walls? The pad is very close to ground level so it doesn't take much snow for the melt to come under the walls. Rain isn't much of an issue.
Any suggestions are appreciated!
