    I have a crack in a concrete block retaining wall, probably due to the settling of the soil. What is an easy and maybe not expensive way to deal with this problem?

    Hi, i bought my house about a year ago and notice that the basement does get damp at certain times in the year, heavy rains, spring and sometimes fall but overall not bad, also the house is over 100 and the original foundation was stone and brick, and i am not sure when but they poured about a foot and a half of cement around on the inside about 5 feet high (the total hight is 6 so i have about a foot of rock and brick that i see), now the cement walls are starting to have a little water come through. I was told there is no way to dig the outside without it crumbling the old rock and brick, but the cement needs to be repaired from the outside....any suggestions?

    'In 2005 the previous owners said a guy patched leaking cracks in the basement's poured foundation with something he called "RTB". Does anyone know what that is? Can't find it on t...'
