    ...if a house happens to be in the path it will go into the cracks

    ...the gas made it`s way into the home through cracks or ANY openings in BASEMENT WALLS where the gas goes up against the wall

    ...the migrating gas made it`s way into the unoccupied home turning the basement into a ticking time bomb

    Should i have the outside of my walls sealed?
    THEY say, No.....this work was done when your house was built.It didn`t work then and it won`t work now....

    Amazing,incompetent,false claims etc.

    The outside of basement walls were NOT 'waterproofed' and were not backfilled w/all gravel.

    Do you use extensive outside excavation?
    THEY answer....No! It is not only unnecessary..............

    More incompetent,false claims.

    Better OPEN your eyes and further your supposed expertise!!!

    A 7 year old could see WHO is telling the truth here,ya knotheads!

    Charlie,

    the only questions would be to any of those inside system co`s.

    just wanted to post those couple stories with photo`s of foundation cracks.

    then point out B Dry and others who only install inside systems do not repair those cracks and other openings thus water,GAS,insects etc will continue to enter and many inside system co`s actually CREATE openings inside peoples basements which can only allow more soil gases to enter.

    some of the openings they create and leave open inside peoples homes are gaps along the floor-wall joint and holes in the bottom courses of block wall.
