the problem is OBVIOUS to some of us, there is an exterior crack in block basement wall !!!
you can see someone tried patching the TOP of crack where it is above grade and they tarred along the perimeter looooll
That crack will extend down below the the concrete driveway you moron. as in this photo
so patching the top of crack doesn’t fix/waterproof the REST of the crack that extends below grade!
The basement will continue to leak in this area until exterior waterproofing is done correctly, in this area.
Don’t give me the crap like, ‘You need to check your downspouts to keep water out of the basement’, nonsense, incompetence.
Fix the dumb downspout but water will still get under the driveway slabs and go through the actual problem, the crack.
— “Keep water out of your house, basement, by installing a landscape drain” loolollllllll
:25 mark he says, ‘The greatest problem source could be the drain tile OR gutter up above is plugged’
Oh so ZERO possibility that there could be 1 or more exterior openings into the house belwo or above grade such as a crack or deteriorated mortar joints, bricks etc belwo or above grade huh?
That’s why those of us with experience would do a water test with a hose BEFORE anything is done, before any money is spent! BUt peeps like this who think they know-it-all will do videos which will spread more BS to those who watch this CRAP
1:05 mark, he says, ’ I found someone tried to fix this problem before by glueing a piece of plastic to the side of the house, it didn’t work’
Well DUH there Mister BIG Pants waterproofer, did they dig down to footing?
YOU don’t know if they did or didn’t.
Did they dig all along the entire side or just in one area?
It matters because there may be openings/cracks BEYOND where they worked! smfh
And again, some people get water inside because there are openings into house ABOVE grade, you never mentioned that possibilty, you went directly into your nonsense on drain tile or gutter pffft, AGAIN, should have done a water test
2:00 mark, can see whoever did previous work used cheap tar etc and they did not bring it up high enough
2:40 yeah, i see the previous pinheads did crap job, again didn’t bring tar etc UP…
2:50 ----- SEE, lolllll, yeah WIDE OPEN — and don’t forget at beginning of video :30 mark previous work did NOT seal that area below grade either! Weak, incompetent, bs… the usual disingenuous crap
You sir did NOT solve the problem, nope!
