‘It’s failing from soil pressure’…well, if so then you need to recommed EXTERIOR waterproofing, NOT just put in tie backs or carbon fiber straps inside, sheesh! Do any patching on the wall inside or recommend installing an interior system would be incompetent.
All due respect but C’’’’’’’’’'MON!
You are only talking about the horizontal crack that is visible inside but apparently you don’t know (least don’t shed any insight on) that there will be OTHER exterior cracks, likely and at least some vertical cracks, possibly 1 or more step cracks and it is because of THOSE and THROUGH those that water is entering and causing what ya see on some of the blocks inside.
Installing carbon straps etc does NOT relieve/lessen ANY exterior soil pressure/weight!
And what ya also don’t say/mention is the possibilty of underground tree ROOTS or concrete against-wall or a porch/footing etc that also can CAUSE cracks,leaks,staining inside. So again, installing carbon straps etc inside does not remove any of these possibilities.
And one more time, the wall has EXTERIOR cracks and there is ONE means of waterproofing those exterior cracks/cracked parging which is the only thing that will STOP further water from entering the blocks,passing through joints etc. Ya think water passing through joints don’t/can’t WEAKEN a wall further? C’’’’’’’’'mon!!! #-o
And what about the possibility of some exterior blocks that can/could be disintegrating…deteriorating, like this…BOWED WALL,
See any parging???
Click duh photos to ENLARGE 'em…what happened to some of the BLOCKS, where did they go!!! It’s MAGIC! lolol
So, what good is recommending carbon straps etc on the inside when the PROBLEMS are outside like this! How much are homeowners paying SE’s for these recommendations?!
What about when 1 or more underground TREE ROOTS was part or all of the CAUSE of cracks in wall and leaky basement, like this…
So, NOT even CONSIDER/think about that shtt like this is possible?!?!
Just leave the exterior cracks,joints OPEN???
Leave the clay soil and-or underground tree roots or porch footing etc etc against the wall and install carbon straps instead!!! lolOlOLlOoll
Install wall anchors like this and what, raise the grade?!?!?
