Mud-jacking/concrete raising/ of slabs--tar or epoxy or silicone along where drive meets house...that it will solve a homeowners seepage problem in basement---How? Same thinking applies here! How are these means going to "divert' all water away from Enitire Wall? How are these means going to take hydrostatic pressure off a wall? Not going to happen..but go ahead and spend the $ and try! In the meantime if you have cracks in the wall or wall movement(bowing-shifting)..then the pressure against the wall below ground is..still there! From the dirt and/or roots...and the wall may shift-move more! Now..instead of being able to to take the pressure off the wall and probably save the wall w/outside waterproofing(all pea stone backfill) the wall has moved another 2-3 inches and you just may need a new wall.And mud-jacking slabs doesn`t last that long,they are likely to settle again! That $ could have been used to fix the problem...not divert water from the problem! And I`m not trying to step on those companies toes who do mud-jacking..we all have to make a living!
