The seller did all kinds of dumb stuff. check out the SIZE of the window well lol.
Seller tossed dirt over aka filled in, old porch, we did not know the poured footing and block footings and concrete below were there and once we found 'em, notified homeowner n exxxplained, yes, if she had the extra cash the poured footings would have come out. I could have walked once we found all the underground fun or could have popped up the cost $, nope, stuck with it for homeowners sake
She had at least SEVEN other estimates, ALL told her to install an interior basement drainage system and sump pump…
Let’s start here lolol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M08lBJAaBFg
Now its almost all dug out, exterior corner crack, horizontal crack
Many openings/gaps around the glass block window sheesh
Undeground ROOTS against, along this wall plus footings and concrete pad… the concrete pad was against the wall, against the bottom-blocks and clay soil… the exterior cracks and openings around window and seven others want to install an interior system and sump pump for $12,000–$15,000???
If you install an interior system and sump pump, water would continue to go into, pass through all the cracks, weakening the blocks n wall
