Ayana Herbert: Can you do this if you basement foundation is made of cinder block?

Light Yagami: shut the fck up plz

G BRM: Hydralic cement will not stop the leaking as it contracts and expands at a different rate from the concrete wall causing it to loosen. Also hydralic pressure from water on the exterior will push through it. Better to drill out the tie and fill with expanding foam. Hydralic cement to fill the snap tie holes on the exterior is just as useless due to the expansion and contraction. Roofing tar works much better. Best practice is to completely cover the exterior concrete with Blu Skin, or other adhesive based water proof membranes. Roofing tar on the snap tie holes and spraying the exterior with tar is still only damp proofing, not waterproofing.
Painting the interior wall with so called water proofing products is a waste of time and money. In time it fails due to exterior water pressure pushing it off the wall.

arnie vandenberg: No safety glasses or gloves....BOYS Not Good at ALL

DangerDaveFreestyle: man, this guy is so good

Eric simard-tremblay: i like to give more room around the beam when i cut insultation. faster on installation. and easier to push the urethane in. the butter and the money of the butter. but why he did use 2Γ—3 to give more room for oullet?

Nosh Hed: I watch this show a lot because I absolutely learn a lot. Anyway, I would like info about my crawl space. The floor joist or beams are 45 1/2 inches apart from each other. I do not know how to insulate that kind of gap. The house was built in 1968 with no insulation, may be the code to building was different then, anyway can you or someone else reading this help me by suggesting a video, some advice, or the steps I need to take to insulate the crawl space?

usernamedkjah: Someone's from Boston....

gasmanrm: cant say I would ever consider insulating a wall this way,the grid work is a waste of time,might as well erect 2by4 wall for wiring and more insulation,cut foam back to 1in thickness

real eyes realize real lies: How much do the insulation pieces cost?

mixwell1983: 2:09 to 2:15 close your eyes and picture something else.

Greg giono: Could watch tom work all day!

Jim C: I have yet to find a video that deals with getting rid of the concrete bumps in the walls covering the rebar ends. Was this concrete slapped on to seal potential water leaks? Or is it somehow concrete that stuck to the rebar when the forms were pulled away? Can I chip it off? Should I chip it off? Should I just put enough pressure on the foamboard to give where the bumps are, conform to the bumpy wall? Should I quit and just build a tiki hut?

Joe Campbell: Yeah, I think I'll use 2x4s to construct my basement walls. Seems easier, plus I won't need to create a multitude of holes in my foundation walls as I wood anchoring 1x3 lattice to them.

Pine Chopper: 1:33 driving the bolt through with a rock hammer? Pathetic.

F Vids: Have fun running electric

Christopher Winchester: What about a block basement , I know to put dry lock put do you need the foam wall barrier as well

Arthur Duda: this old house one of the best tv. shows ever.

Robert Patrene: Tommy is the greatest person for showing how to do it .πŸ‘πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‘

Kenz300 x: Need more videos and TV episodes on energy efficiency, air sealing, insulation, high efficient windows, and other design tips. How about This Old House doing a Net Zero home build ?
