A friend of mine has asked me for advice on a repair to his basement wall. Seems that he has a crack that runs from below a basement window to the floor.
He said that ten wears ago he dug away the outside fill and first tarred the wall then covered it with roofing felt. It worked fine until recently and now he is looking for a longer lasting repair. The wall has shown no further signs of movement that he has noticed. I understand that he has a set of steps that he will have to remove if he wants to do another exterior repair. I was wondering if any of you folks would have an idea that might work. I suspect that there is some sort of sealant that might work from the inside, though I haven’t had any experience with such products. My suggestion was to dig it up again and use some sort of pit liner material, but then I’m not the one that will be doing the grunt work ( he’s a friend people, not someone that I owe money, etc., to!).
Your thoughts are appreciated. Thanks
