Flooding in kitchen when it rains.
Hi I'm hoping to get some advice from folks out there. I bought a two story townhouse a little over a year ago and the first time it rained heavily the entire kitchen was flooded and I spent hours trying to clean it as more water came in. The HOA came and had a roofer fix the roof and I thought that was that. Next time it rained it happened again, although not nearly as much water came through. HOA sent out the roofers again and they found all the drains needed clearing. I also had a rehab construction company come and air out the walls, and also caulk around the windows and door on that side of the townhouse. Again i thought good to go. Yesterday it rained heavily and I found a pool of water in the kitchen near the door, one of the same places as before, and also moisture around the base boards where water had previously come in. Thankfully not nearly as much but I need some advice from anyone out there. The door was caulked as well and there is no water on the door anywhere, just the floor. Is it likely that they just didn't fix the roof properly and there is some small place where the water is still getting in? It takes a few hours of rain before the water comes in so it seems like it is accumulating up top and then when there is enough it comes through the walls and out the bottom of the baseboards. All advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks
