Hey guys I need all the help I can get
So I had to replace the the water heater yesterday.... i did it so that incase it pours outr water it goes into the pan and drains into the french drains.
I have the whole basement ripped apart, I took down all the ugly wall panels. I removed the 30yr old carpet
And what I saw was white powdery lime Which from what I know are the minerals which are coming up from the concrete floor and/or wall.
They had used 1x6 to hold up the panel walls against the concrete block wall.
well I was thinking I would get another set of 1x6 and put them over the existing 1x6 which then would be better for me to insert some insulation behind the drywall. ??
this way I can also purchase new wall sockets for the electric they had 1in sockets which i never seen before..
another issue "french drains" the edge of the slabs in some areas were cracked and broken off so i decided to clean them up and get ready to fix up those areas what do you guys recomend for the type cement ??
I just posted some pics take a look see what you guys would do I know alot of your are builders out there.
Also what can I use to to put on that hot water baseboard piping for insulation?
let me know guys thank you !!
