How ya doing Mr. G
Say again, it does nothing to relieve, reduce exterior soil pressure against a basement wall. It doesn’t remove possible underground tree roots or concrete slabs or porch-footings etc that cause or help cause bowed walls, cracks in wall, widening of existing cracks etc.
Placing carbon straps on inside walls, bowed in walls, doesn’t repair/waterproof the existing EXTERIOR cracks in block, brick walls.
The exterior cracks, cracked parging is where the water is entering. The water first enters, passes through the exterior cracks into the hollow blocks and then drops through the lower blocks where it most often comes out inside the basement at–along the bottom of wall/block and the floor.
MANY who see this, water coming out at-along the bottom of block wall and floor misrepresent, lie, mislead (whatever), what is going on and tell/bs homeowners they have a supposed hydrostatic pressure problem under the floor and need an interior basement system. See it, hear it ALL the time!
Scroll down a little to, Basement Wall Damage…
Hmmmm, UNBIASED here eh.
Do they tell people who have bowed walls to apply Duh Reinforcer?
Do they tell peeps to install an interior basement drainage system?
NOT saying ‘some’ of this shtt that can be applied to interior walls isn’t helpful in some smaller ways but the sob’s who install it always or nearly always are interior system companies who will talk the homeowners into the dumb az interior system and leave the exterior cracks open, water is still entering, and as i/others have tried to show time and again with photos, more mold, more, efflorescence etc, and time and again the supposed lifetime warranty and company either is gone, bye bye, OOB or bs’s the homeowners and tells them the continued problems are not their fault.
The walls need to be DUG OUT, and if someone wants this stuff applied inside it should then be done in conjunction with EXTERIOR waterproofing, proper backfill etc.
B Dry was here, told and sold homeowner an interior drainage system and all along, before and obviously after, the walls have been, still are BOWED in, multiple exterior cracks, still leaks etc. The MONEY spent on B Dry SHOULD have been spent on EXTERIOR waterproofing, period!
And if B Dry, the salesperson or owner, whoever the fc was there SHOULD have explained and informed the lady what was really going on and what was need which yet again, lol, was NOT their inside system! Geezzzzzzzzzzz
Look at the BOTTOM block, top of bottom block…also multiple exterior vertical cracks.
The lady called my az because…cracks continued to occur and, some existing cracks WIDENED and…still leaked! And she said, just before calling my stinky az, she had a RADON TEST done, off duh charts.
The reason she had us only ‘do’ about 1/2 of the wall (it really needs the rest done and so do all other walls) is because she simply didn’t have the money.
Again, when she handed B Dry $5,000 for about 2 walls, that money should have been spent on the outside…shtt happens all the time.
Bowed wall…how does applying REINFORCING straps on inside seal/waterproof the multiple exterior openings and deterioration to blocks?
It doesn’t, nary one bit.
Wall anchors were installed here, wall is bowing in…someone plz tell Milkman what good it did to spend $$$ on wall anchors, Bubba needs help, lol!
MORE incompetent crap, $5,700 ish spent on a few beams and other incompetent junk when all the while, the problems, the causes are OUTSIDE!!!
And homeowner told my az, the SCS city INSPECTOR recommended this company, lolol, what a CROCK of bullll
Eh Drippy Dry company, homeowner is still looking for ya, calling yer azz, where O where can Mr Drippy Dry be, oh where or where can they be? lolol SCAM!!
Some walls simply need to be replaced. I don’t enjoy trying to explain that to any homeowner but its the truth. Some need to be replaced, other can be repaired, exterior work/waterproofing. Any new wall needs to be waterproofed and backfilled correctly, not damproofed.
