Really? If any water, mold etc in the basement it’s probably DUE to, grading, shtt… nonsense!!!
IF they have water in that basement, efflorescence or mold then it’s probably due to one or more of the following…
– 1 or more cracks in the basement walls
–if they have poured walls then they may have 1++ open, deteriorated rod holes
–1++ or more exterior openings around, under basement windows or around/under any door or other window
–1+ or more cracks in bricks or cracks/deteriorated mortar joints above grade
Yeah they are a few other possibilities but these are the most likely… 37 years says so.
Per the home inspectors claim that IF there is water, mold inside the basement its probably due to grading (and some other inspectors)… hmmm, so if THAT basement has anything like THIS basement (in video here), then its likely due to GRADING??? looooooooooooooooooooooooool
I yap a lot buttttttttt don’t really say much huh? Okie dokie dorkie.
Photo album of leaky basement… click any photo to ENLARGE the dumb photo so can ummm, SEE loool
They umm, RE---------GRADED…still leaked.
They continued to leak because SOMEBODY didn’t know wtf they were yapping about, loser-incompetent recommendation to regrade.
Recommending grading and other rookie bullshtt has NOT ‘identied’ how and where the dumb azz water is allowed to GET IN nor does re–grading fix/repair/waterproof whatever the problems are!!! duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh
Photo album, leaky corner
80 something year old woman owns this house, was FIRST told to EXTEND her downspout ext’s…and then told to MOVE them///redirect them, so she did… still leaked at–near back corner.
Then she was told to caulk/tar along the edge of the house–driveway… so she did, still leaked.
THENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN looooooooooooooool she called around and got estimates from supposed expert, honest waterproofing contractors…the ones she called were inside basement system companies and my old azz.
The interior system LIARS told her she needed an interior basement system, all the fkg way around…LOTS of money as usual. Say again, she ONLY leaked at that corner and if your dumb azz takes a few moments and eyeballs the photos you should under–friggin–stand why/where water was able to get the hellllll in.
She spent around $900 on our azz to get that corner waterproofed outside, job was done around 10–12 years ago, maybe longer… NO leaky basement since.
Hmmmmmm, interior basement system that almost always costs $10,000–15,000 and that would NOT have stopped the friggin water from where it was entering OR, $900 ? GEE gee GEE gee Gee, which was the best way TA go?
Back to the home inspector, he’s likely a good dude, a good friggin home inspector but simply doesn’t understand THIS--------------------------------subject well enough in order to truly help his clients. Maybe some home inspectors would help their clients and themselves better if they kept their jibs shut on this-subject.
Why is it that some people have no food at all and OTHERS eat a nourishing meal and PUKE it UP intentionally?
