We arebuying a house that has similar problems.
Had the city building inspector out to hear his
opinion and he said the metal bars will work-your
walls will not go anywhere-you're safe in that
respect. He did say if you want to guarantee
waterproof results, it's better to completely
rebuild the walls and add exterior sump gravel
system. However, my contractor said there are
waterproofing companies that will gaurantee
a waterproof basement by installing an interior
sump pump system after the metal beams are installed.
I'm going to try this route since it is about 1/3
the cost of total replacement.
