I have a very leaky basement. The house was built in 1937
and the foundation consists of 2 courses of brick that were never
coated with anything. What is the best way to waterproof it?
My plan is to dig it up, clean it and coat it with a coating of
mixture of Type M Portland, lime and sand. Considering screening it
Before the cement ( or do you think that's overkill). After coating it
with hot tar. I will put a perforated drain in before backfilling it.
Comments or other options appreciated.
