From previous posts, I am looking at finishing my basement over the winter. Well recently on two occasions with a really wind driven heavy rain there was a small puddle (approximately 1/2-1 gal) of water that was seeping from the base of a wall along the floor. It is really at the edge of the floor. I am going to check to see if the downspots are pushing the water away and see if there is anything obvious with the exterior landscaping.
If all looks normal, would you put a sump pump in? What are some other options?
