What is this guy or anyone else like him doing suggesting/recommending supposed fixes for leaky basements, give Mark Anderson a dang break with this weak negligent bs. Answer people’s questions your good at would you please!!!
Run a water test with a hose to determine if there are cracks, rod holes etc!!!
The homeowner tries a bunch of junk that does NOT determine how/where the water is getting in!!!!!!!@@#^&%^())**&)^*&& looool
Sad, very sad.
Thhhhhhhhhhhen, we have old Henri chiming in, same old moronic nonsense.
Install an interior system huh?
Build a curtain drain huh?
Go fix a door bell please!
The homeowner needs to determine whether or not there is 1 or more cracks in the 2 basement walls, or rod holes etc if they are poured walls. You do that by running a WATER TEST!!! loooollll
If this homeowners basement is finished then he won’t SEE any possible cracks in walls or rod holes etc.
If the basement is NOT finished then he… STILL may NOT see any cracks on the inside of the basement walls IF they are block, or brick walls.
THAT does NOT mean there are any EXTERIOR cracks in block/brick walls, or cracked parging.
RUN… a…WATER TEST with a hose.
And if the basement IS finished then it may be a good idea to take off some of the drywall etc… that would help define some of the possibilities of the problem and they may have some mold etc on wall(s).
Most homeowners with leaky basements ONLY see, get water at----along the very bottom of the wall… where the floor meets the wall!!! That’s one reason they get screwed, lied-to by inside system companies.
And it’s one reason why Henri and many others do not UNDERSTAND this subject and recommend dog—crap repairs.
Some water could also be entering from 1++ above grade openings around ANY windows, doors etc. Run a water test AGAINST those as well.
Sometimes one needs to go through a process of elimination in order to GET TO the actual problem so that, duhhhh, one can actually FIX the problem instead of being another incompetent moron and ind install an interior basement system or curtain drain etc etc. Installing window well covers or raising the grade etc is NOT going about the correct means of a process of elimination, no its SNOT.
You take a dang hose as I have in this video and lay it on the ground, on the outside of where the homeowner gets water inside, got that?
This homeowner got water in basement, out the chimney chute door within a few minutes and as I say in this video and the next-video (BEFORE we dug it out!), there will be a crack or rod holes etc on the exterior chimney wall(s) and its because of those openings, water gets in. Its not the grade, its not the pitch of dumb concrete etc.
About to saw-cut a concrete slab, in order to hand dig/waterproof the problems. NOTE-- Before I cut the dumb concrete and before we waterproof the chimney walls at the 1:00 mark, my old azz says… There WILL be a crack or rod hole etc open on the exterior wall(s), HOW would I know that??? Loolll because I just did a WATER TEST and water entered the basement out the chimney chute door!!! … watch the next short video, the cracks and rod holes
Waterproofing the exterior … how did my dirty old azz know there were cracks etc…huh? C’MON, give me some stinky azz credit for a) being very g d good, its actually called EXPERIENCE and b) very g d honest… god I hate incompetent scamming azz wipes.
So HENRI, what say you? What, install a CURTAIN DRAIN?
Install an interior basement drainage system? REALLLLLLY?
One more time, in----friggin—competent chumps who THINK they know everything on this subject, shttt
