Stan- We had a couple of glitches.
1. 2 1/2" of rain in 24 hours, water seeped through the wall . Had to pay $250 to have a guy coat the wall with some rubbery gray stuff.
2. After the floor was all dry the plumber cut the line to hook up the wet bar sink, before he blead the 500 gallons in this 3 story house.
I had dryers goin for a week.
Things are back to normal now(remodels are so much fun)

Here is a post out of plumb-the builder lost his level I guess.

Looks good. Thats nice having your sons involved. Are you going to be putting in surround sound and all the hi-tech stuff?

Pro-Dek:

What's this 'rubbery gray stuff' you speak of? Did they spray that on the inside of the walls?

Also, quick question...do you put a vapor barrier up on the external walls? (Though I suppose the rubber stuff is technically the vapor barrier.)

Darrel-I wish I knew on the sealer,I'll find out and let you know. No moisture barrier required. Paper side of insulation goes toward the outside wall which acts as a moisture barrier here. In Eastern Washington where the climate is much colder they put plastic on the inside walls before sheetrock.

Pro-Dek:

Thanks. Don't worry too much about finding out about the grey stuff. I was just curious.

BTW, I forgot to mention that the basement is looking great!

Hey Prodeck- good to have sons -no?

Mine tied off durn near all the receptacles on my Texas job. I showed him how once- And he did everything he did perfect. I showed the 42 two year old owner three times and had to redo every bit of wiring he touched. Stop Helping! Please!

Pro-Dek:

Eastern Washington? For some reason I thought you were in the Michigan area. It's appears far too late to seal the outside of the block basement wall, which would have prevented "minor" water seepage?

I grew up in SE Pa and dad was the builder. It became my job to "seal" the outside basement walls prior to backfilling the areas. No pretty job there but we used apprx 5(5gal) buckets of roofing tar applied with a paint roller and brush on a typical 2,000 Sf home at the time.

I thought it was great money(1974-5) at the time, but a nasty job. Twenty bucks cash for 2 hours work, and I was outta there partying that night. I covered everything, but it took hours to get clean after the first job..LOL

LOL Doug - But it is my kids that teach me how to do things in alot of cases.

Ken- I'm in Western Washington- the water seepage was caused not by lack of outside sealer but where a plumber put a sewer pipe thru the wall and used Quickcrete to seal around the pipe.Michigan? Where's that?Is that where they ice skate on all those lakes?
