Question

Sonneborn


It is just a shinkage crack, maybe 1/16th wide at the most but from top to the slab, it does not meet in the middle kind of goes the stops then picks up a few inches over. It is in the middle of a long straight wall. BASF has like 25 diff. Sonneborn products what is the "gray" stuff called?

You use the pvc miradrain dimpleboard bellow grade to create a air void to let the crack area drain out correct? I would think the roofing tar would clog it up??

Only leaking at the cracks


The basement only leaks at that crack, and at another shrinkage crack where the foundation steps down for the framing of the walk out on the other side of the house. I will dig both out bellow grade and apply the roofing cement and see how it goes! Thanks again!
