My 2 cents…defect.
Mike, I cannot see/tell for sure eyeballing that photo, just wondering if that is a crack at-near a “control joint”. Is there a vertical indentation in the wall right there, right where the crack is?
And one can fix CERTAIN LEAKS from the inside such as, an open leaky rod hole in poured walls or if a leak is simply due to a dripping plumbing fixture in duh basement or, if there is a blockage in the clean out/lateral line or floor drain (plumber would snake duh clean out or duh floor drain) so as always, depends WHAT the leak is due to which is why its always necessary to FIRST correctly & honestly identify duh leak which is what interior terdball companies/salespeople do NOT do…got milk?
Here, leaky rod hole can be fixed on the inside IF done correctly
These guys have much more common sense that inside system companies
Pic 1. See the crappy DIMPLED membrane
3. Tell ya, look at that? lolol Incompetent!
4. Again, what was the builder/contractors thinking! And, where’s the building department/inspector? How does this crap keep occurring!
Its the same dumb thought process with basement walls, nobody thinks about waterproofing and backfilling them correctly! And 99% of the waterproofing companies these days are INSIDE SYSTEM MORONS, excuse me, water DIVERTING Co’s.
Yet it sure seems everyone on the planet these days professes/claims they are EXPERTS on basement waterproofing/foundation repair…NONSENSE baby!
