We are basically complete novices to basement repair, so forgive the question if it's so simple! We're asking you so we are more knowledgeable when dealing with contractors!
We live in a house built in 1979. Our basement has some water problems, which appear to be caused by small round holes in the basement wall about the diameter of a small pencil. A friend told us these could be rods used in the construction of the house that had rusted away. There are about 8 holes at two different heights, approximately 2 feet and 5 feet from the floor.
Can you help diagnose the problem? What would be the best way to repair the wall?
Thank you in advance!
