Water coming in to the basement from over the top of the foundation can be from improperly installed or damaged thru-the-wall brick flashing and of course a leaking brick wall. It is the thru-the-wall flashing that catches the water coming through the brick and diverts it out the weep holes at the bottom of the brick wall. Part of the original foundation waterproofing is installed behind the bricks and is called thru-the-wall brick flashing.
This repair if done properly, will help to stop rot, mold and termites that cause untold $10,000’s in damage to homes yearly.
Many contractors will want to sell you an underground foundation waterproofing service when the real problem is leaking brick and above ground!
