loool so Nachi ganged up and 86 the thermal imaging post, wow… embarrassing.
Never said thermal imaging wasn’t a helpful tool for OTHER things. I said, NOT for diagnosing leaky basements and some Nachi inspectors got all upset didn’t they. Apparently THEY don’t read/understand what i wrote and that’s partly what I get frustrated with when they come on here ragging and crying, they just don’t want to THINK or READ or watch the videos or look at all the photos… in order to understand what I’m explaining, god. loool
What was posted that some didn’t want others to read? We know.
Here’s more proof why contractors should use/apply hydraulic cement FIRST, before tarring the dumb basement wall… and why they should backfill with most–all gravel
Chimney leak, was done before… HO out that $$$ and now spending more.
Do it right the first time would ya please!
digging it down, what do we have?
dug out, in duh hole looking up at the crack
lame thought to think vertical drain tiles filled with gravel is all you need , somehow is enough drainage to keep water off the wall, off the crack, duh!!
IF they had used/applied hydraulic cement before slapping on the tar and, IF they had backfilled with all gravel then the homeowner would NOT have had to spend more money, idiots.
Tar and visqueen etc gets pulled down when that same shtty soil you backfill with, settles, re–exposing the crack, usually the top 1-2’ of these vertical cracks thus allowing water to re–enter, morons.
Some of these cracks widen so the tar (depending on how THICK or thin its applied) doesn’t always BRIDGE these cracks, errr keep the cracks sealed so that no water enters, sheesh.
Video, same shtt… 1:55 or so, the small area of the drive–side you can see tar, same thing on the front corner… so somebody previously did another 1/2 azzed job outside and, someone else installed an interior basement system just before the homeowners hired us. Yes, they got screwed on the outside… out that money (still leaked duh!) and then they got lied to by the interior system idiots, out even more money!
Nachi allows interior basement system companies to go to chapter meetings and talk to Nachi inspectors… WHY?
How is THAT ok, but when I post videos, photos etc, its NOT ok? Morons, double standard bs
Say it again, answer the questions man, god this is so weak… Nachi allows INTERIOR basement system companies to go to inspector meetings and talk their crap to Nachi members… that’s A ok.
WHO thinks its a good idea for interior companies to throw all their crap at Nachi members?
I’ve never seen/read that Nachi had an experienced exterior waterproofing contractor at any Nachi chapter meeting, hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
