I had a sump pump failure during Ida and as part of the remediation, decided to replace carpet with porcelain tiles. Even during Ida, I never had water coming up the floor.
After putting in porcelain tiles, there is a small section of the floor where I got water during yesterday's heavy rains. I am thinking this is because the grade changed a bit when the new tiles came up (fresh cement) leading to a low spot where the hydrostatic pressure is now too much. Any other reasons this could suddenly happen after putting tiles?
Are there any ways to remediate?
Thanks

I know you said you never had water before but my first thought is you did and you just didn't notice it because the carpet and any pad underneath did a good job of concealing it from you. That said, you said, "new cement" so tell us more about this new CONCRETE (cement is an ingredient in concrete).
