Small.amount of water under subfloor

Post by Paulabgreen13 »

Hello we are renovating our lounge and as the joists were rotten replaying them but as we dug all the crap out of the subfloor to create ventilation and put in air rock the lower part of the floor has been filling up with what looks like rain water after 3 days of heavy downpours. What is heat to do?? We are worried about putting new flooring over such a large puddle

My suggestion is the same as I said in the other thread. Investigate to see if it is rising water table from rain or a ground water run off problem.
