Told the guy to extend the downspouts, drill some holes in the blocks to let 'em drain, and apply some DryLok then call it a day...

Think that should do it Mark?  Grin

You know BA... that thought did cross my mind as there were some pretty neat patterns and slight color shades my camera couldn't capture... but then I figured I was beginning to hallucinate.  Smiley

And if money smelled like this... I'm not sure I'd want too much of it.

this may be of interest

Phase One study shows the accuracy of handheld moisture meters in assessing moisture content in gypsum sheathing. The meters are reasonably accurate for paperfaced gypsum sheathing up to (approximately) 6%, but above that the moisture meter reads lower than the actual value.

VERY interesting study!  Thanks for forwarding!

I know some inspectors in my area get into recording actual moisture content... I don't.  It's either wet or it isn't.  Doesn't matter how much in my opinion.

http://picasaweb.google.com/101049034584960315932/BasementWaterproofing09#5442183514425639970

  .....an underground root against the basement wall CAUSED the cracks which then allowed water to enter basement


 Just because someone may see a hairline crack(s) in wall inside basement doesn't at all mean you see,know the whole story...sheesh. Eh, so ya see a hairline step crack....and? This is the SAME dang corner,the outside pics is same corner! lol  Multiple cracks etc......i fart alot when i hear certain things in this trade, got milk?
