Same home inspectors talking about… other home inspectors that inspected the same house, in part says, ‘other 2 home inspectors are apparently clueless…’
So it’s ok for one HI to shtt on another HI. See/read that here loool.
But to some here, it’s not ok for an expert on waterproofing to shtt on an HI who, absolutely fkd up on his incompetent assumptions, which screws over homeowners.
This fkg place is like the ‘Edge of Night’, got dat?
Here’s the same inspector in another short video, he wrote, ‘Bad grading and topography equals water penetration’… and below that says, ‘The drain tile if one exists is non funcational’… block walls. See the efflorescence, mold? huh?
Eh, water penetration into a basement/block walls, is most often due to one or more of the following,
-exterior cracks in wall or cracked parging or no parging on exterior walls
-other exterior openings on/in the exterior of the block wall. Have posted numerous videos and photos showing some of these.
-direct exterior openings ABOVE the stupid basement walls such as cracked/deteriorated mortar joints/bricks, openings in-around-under basement windows, doors etc
-a possible blockage in a lateral line that may simply need to be snaked (yeah, may need to be partially or totally replaced)
-a possible problem with an existing sump pump or, the tiles in the pit may need to be snaked
So other than some sort of interior leaky dripping plumbing fixture/pipe or a floor drain that is backing up or is/was cemented over, the above are the most often ways of water penetration into basements and the first few are the most likely ones to CAUSE some mold or efflorescence on some blocks inside, which is wtf the home in video has.
That house/basement water problems are NOT because of ‘bad grading/topography’ BULLLLLLLLL–incompetent------SHTT!
Some HI’s, especially here in Michigan are CLUELESS on this subject and need to be held accountable for their fk ups.
That house, the walls have at least ‘some’ exterior cracks or cracked parging and THAT is at least part of WHY and WHERE the stoooooooooooopid fkg water enters, not because of the dumb azz grade.
NO competent home inspector, Nachi member or otherwise, would go on any home inspection and simply tell any homeowner that their leaky basement is in part or all DUE TO, bad grading, absolute bulllshttt and will back it up anywhere, anytime…fc n a Homeowners, YOU need to hold these HI’s accountable, get your inspection fee back OR, if you bought a house and a HI told you bulllshtt like this and then you found out that house has 1+ cracks in walls etc then, SUE them, damn skippy, sue the home inspector, incompetence/negligence that COST you $$$$ in repairs the HI didn’t find, didn’t care to find, didn’t warn you about BEFORE you bought the stinky house!!!
Example, how HIGH do you think/want the stupid fkg GRADE to be, so that…in YOUR shttball opinions, it’ll SUPPOSEDLY keep water out of the basement, OFF the entire depth of basement wall, huh?
Homeowners/buyers, if you bought a house and your home inspector told you ALL you needed to do to keep water out of the basement, one area or more, was to simply raise and slope the grade or extend downspout ext’s 8 miles long and, your actual existing problems were any kind of exterior defect(s) as in this video, sue the mfr.
Or, if your home inspector didn’t say/recommend to remove (you or the seller, not the HI) a piece + of drywall or paneling, as in this video, in order to find/determine the ACTUAL EXISTING problems/defects in the founfation walls, sue 'em, they cost you $$$
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0puicQF5NM see this shtt ALL the time. A home inspector will tell a buyer to raise and slope the grade of other incompetent bullllllllshtttt that…
1- did NOT find/determine the existing problem(s)
2- did NOT fix/repair the existing problem, existing DEFECT
If you had a home inspector out and paid them… $300–500 and you were concerned about a leaky chimney/basement like the one in this video, and the home inspector told you all you needed to do was add soil or mudjack/raise the concrete slab by chimney (as in video) and you wouldn’t have any more concerns, sue 'em
They should have advised you to run a … water test in order to deduce/find the actual problems with the stoooooooopid chimney
How many more real g DAMN videos or photo sets do some here need to see, to understand what most homeowners problems reallllllly are!! Fc me man.
