I Have a concrete underground garage that has a patio, planters and expansion joints above it on the ground floor. Expansion joints are sealed with caulk but water is leaking into garage in various areas and landing on cars and in lockers.
Some areas have no cracks on first floor above them. What is the best way to
check ther leaks and how should I repair them?
Thank you, David

David,

As you probably know concrete is like a sponge and any underground water will be sucked up by the concrete eventually reaching the positive side and causing damage and mold. There are many temporary fixes however I recommend you look at a website, http://www.waterintrusiontechnologies.com

Visit the http://www.moxie-intl.com web site and read a bit about the Moxie 1500 sealer. Call Dennis Lee at the listed phone number on the site. You will have your answer. From Jerry Lee in Houston, TX.

If it is a crack in the wall i would recommend epoxy injection. If it is a slab crack, there could be small void underneath. I'd recommend mudjacking or polyjacking
