instead of talking, replying and trying to tell me your grading crap solves most leaky basements, prove it, like i try to do with hundreds of videos of leaky basements and what was obviously OPEN on the OUTSIDE! Take videos of your re-grading bullshttt n post 'em, THEN, wait 1-2 years and go back and ask homeowner how that basement is, got it? Prolly not.
See the concrete? Newer driveway was poured, perimeter along drive and house caulked/tarred! Still leaked, see why chumps, sheesh loooolllll
concrete now has been cut, popped out, see why–where it leaked, had NOTHING to do with the grade, or the bitch-pitch of the slabs, total nonsense, weak, incompetent crap, the USUAL!
HAD there been no deteriorated rod holes (builders and city inspector blllshtt) and had there been no deteriorating bricks, joints etc under the side door ledge and elsewhere then the bitch would not have leaked REGARDLESS of the pitch of the OLD slabs
NEXT example, video PROOF unlike a few here who yap but cannot back up, prove their myths
homeowners leaked/seeped along back wall and side, driveway side wall… duh ummm i take a hose on dry day and run water on, along driveway and back concrete patio… they begin ti get water in = EXTERIOR cracks and/or other EXT openings allowing water in basement, ONE FIX to STOP the water from where it’s entering through existing defects (got that sellers, buyers?)
Do you see the concrete agst house? lol Do YOU see they caulked/tarred along perimeter? What is YOUR recommendation Mr inspector? NEW driveway? Mudjack slabs? Caulk over the existing caulk? loolollll
3 videos of the drive side wall and the back wall, wanna see, learn or talk shtt?
PART of the side…
rest of drive–side, what ya see? What’s OPEN allowing water in on basement floor? Re-grading, pouring new concrete etc doesn’t FIX shtt, doesn’t keep all sursurface water OFF OF the walls man, you are dreamingggggggggggggggggggggggggg
Back wall, what is OPEN… look dammmit, what is open pin head? They have concrete all along drive up against house and along the back and tarred/caulked perimeter!!! smgddddh
but some home inspectors do NOT ‘get it’, they don’t understand, they sure love to recommend DOGSHTT now don’t they but they don’t have the experience, no they don’t, so they should shut up about shtt they know little if anything about becccccccause, your dumb ass recommendations on leaky basements screws/hurts HOMEOWNERS!!! j kristams some are so friggin lost, don’t like my attitude then as i said a million other times kick me off your lying, incompetent board (on this subject its true)
Homeowners, you need to get your money back from ANY home inspector who mislead you, who gave you bogus moronic recommendations and NOW you see they were full of shtt because you are still leakkkking and its gonna cost you MONEY to fix those existing problems/defects that THEY did not bring up/explain to you!!! Most of HI’s, least around here in MI are NOT, in any way an honest expert on this subject. One more tidbit, SOME home inspector get $$$, kickbacks almost always from sone interior basement drainage system companies, yep, they…the home inspector gets money for LEADING YOU to almost always unscrupulous, scamming, lying INT co’s, how do feel about that? I think it sucks big time, them using YOU to make $$$ off of YOU, yep.
