Sure they do, more proof from earlier today lol.
We waterproofed the exterior chimney walls 1 year ago, have had lots of rain here in MI since, homeowner has not got a drop in until last rain a few days ago, he called and of course thought it was the chimney wall(s), yeah like we missed something, we went over there this morning to find the existing problem/pathway where water got in… head joint, dig?
Nachi’s own Mr Bazzo ref’d us to this homeowner, he’s a good guy, nice family.
Several points here but just touch on couple for now,
FIND, identify your ACTUAL problem (s)… and sometimes that means taking the dang TIME to do so!
Put your games down for a few hours, they’ll still be there when your butt is done.
See, IF I was one of the many INT drainage system morons or an exterior butt-brain contractor then I could have easily made up a story or 5 to tell this guy and any others why they need more waterproofing or an INT dumb azz system… that is exactly what happens. Yeah could have said his drain tiles to going away from the chimney must now be clogged or busted etc since we were there and needs more EXT waterproofing or again, a piece of junk INT water-diverting system $$$, could have dreamed up other lies, ya folla?
Sometimes, if your know wtf your doing, what to look for in order to find how/where the water could be getting in you can save yourself, or homeowners quite a bit of stinky green $… unless your a con artist as I said.
