Basement waterproofing Michigan, block foundation walls. Homeowner only leaks, get water on the basement floor, in the areas ya see and they only see the water come in at--along the very bottom of the F wall, where it meets the floor.
They had a mold problem in the basement, mold on parts of the block walls, floor etc... they also had a leaky plumbing fixture in basement that was repaired prior to the waterproofing


Newer driveway slabs, lol, same old SAME..... and they caulked the perimeter where the concrete kisses the foundation walls... and so, did the caulk and the new-better-pitched drive slabs stop the leaky basement? Nope. Why? Because the pitch of the slabs (grade) was NOT the problem, the multiple cracks, joints etc were the problems and water gets under concrete slabs...... NOTE--- lol, this when done before, exterior damproofing, see where they applied the tar.... just a tad short! hahaaaa
YouTube
So when my old azz hears from some that say crap like, "Oh, we had exterior waterproofing done and it did not fix the problem".... you should be able to deduce WHY!!!! Other times when exterior waterproofing was done and homeowners still leaks, it can be because the contractor did not determine the actual problem (s) which can be openings in-around-under basement windows or doors or cracked deteriorated bricks n mortar joints above grade and so on.... you hired a contractor that didn't correctly, or honestly, identify the dang problem.

and......... YouTube


Would spending thousands MORE on an interior basement system and sump pump have repaired the exterior cracks and stopped the water, mold? Nope.

Apparently this guy just bought this house, leaky basement.
2:00 water dripping on electrical outlet.... 4:00 some mold.
Water is entering because they are multiple exterior cracks in block foundation walls and quite likely direct openings above grade.
YouTube
So installing any interior basement drainage system with 105 sump pumps would NOT stop further water from entering the exterior cracks, existing defects, wouldn't stop/prevent further mold, nope.
