Leaks in fieldstone foundation
I have an 1880 Victorian with a fieldstone foundation in part of the house. In a small section, there is water leaking thru the foundation when it rains heavily. What is the best way to remedy this?
FYI, the land just outside this section of the foundation slopes away dramatically from the house. It is just dirt with some hostas growing 5 feet away. I just inspected outside the foundation and noticed what appears to be some small animal tunnels, perhaps chipmunks, red squirrel. Could these tunnels be funnelling water down to the foundation?
Thanks for the advice,
