Concrete Water Damage?,AscZW0c,C1UmR2M#0

I gutted the walls in my basement and am gonna take my time and research everything. First off I'd like to know a few things.

Is this water damage? The nail seems to have separated from the concrete (Studs were 2x2 with no insulation, I live in Montreal)

If so how I should I go about fixing it?

Also I'd like to know what I should do with the remaining nails attached to the concrete?

Concrete Water Damage?

Research what. It is just a bad pour when the foundation was laid. How old is this place that we are talking about? The whole pour looks like they did not vibrate or agitate the mix during the pour to help compact it down in the forms, to push the bubbles out.


Ren: Now listen, Cadet. I've got a job for you. See this button? Ren: Don't touch it! It's the History Eraser button, you fool! Stimpy: So what'll happen? Ren: That's just it. We don't know. Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?
