Homeowner may have covered the inside wall,maybe not. You might see something like this http://picasaweb.google.com/DrE.Genius/Muncie/photo#5188543394759519858
Wall anchors like these may/might give a lil support to inside wall ‘where they were applied’…doesn
t mean poured/block wall still wont bow in further afterwards, especially if the CAUSE hasn
t been diagnosedn repaired/removed etc. The cause is often-not always, lateral soil pressure and or roots and or porch footing etc. If they/contractor put wall anchors up as in pic it doesn
t mean they diagnosed/removed the CAUSE and they didnt waterproof exterior of wall, still leaking as ya.
Ya might see beams or carbon fiber straps, again, does NOT mean contractor removed the cause and certainly doesn`t mean they repaired/waterproofed the leak/cracks etc.
Couple stories…last one ‘Timing matters’…an unsound basement wall BEHIND drywall http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=730483
You may see beam(s) or wall anchors etc inside and…see something like this http://www2.snapfish.com/thumbnailshare/AlbumID=219825599/a=122238283_111847456/t_=122238283
Walls were recently painted,see efflorescence,mold-mildew on walls. That crap is still there and will continue to be there because the inside system that was installed does not stop/prevent water from entering the cracks on exterior of block walls.Nor does it stop/prevent insects from entering the same cracks.
Same here,first 4 pics http://www2.snapfish.com/thumbnailshare/AlbumID=235313554/a=122238283_111847456/t_=122238283
a few pics…
2nd pic on left…lateral pressure CAUSING top of basement wall to bow in…(pilasters failed to brace wall)
top 2 pics, crap done on inside…inside system and injection. Not good.
