    So it looks like my accountant should have set me up with a LTC instead... I might have a chat to him about that. Thanks all for your knowledge. I was going to interrogate ACC about all of this but...

    Sure, it generates an income and I guess that's all that matters from ACC's perspective. It's just that the director/shareholders (me) are covered as individual persons by ACC and I already pay a...
  6. ACC levies for companies that exist only to own property

    I was wondering if someone might be able to clarity this for me... I own a commercial rental that I bought around four years ago. It's owned not by me but a company that I'm the sole director of. The...

    Was the drainage coil laid at the foundation? How deep did you have to dig down? Your plumber handled the connecting of coil to stormwater I assume or can that be done by a handy person? Is the silt...

    Sounds like the sensible thing to do. BTW what sort of symptoms are present when the foundation is damaged... do you see cracking of the interior gib?
  10. What's interesting is that despite all of the...

    What's interesting is that despite all of the differing opinions on these myriad waterproofing systems I see that many are "BRANZ approved"... I wonder what that tells us.
  11. I agree... I too am a fan of Building Science.

    I see you're based in Tauranga which is a shame as I would book you for a consultation if you were in Auckland. Which company/installer can you recommend up here?

    Something else that occurred to me: there's a fairly large established tree planted right up against the exterior of the wall... I wonder if the roots have caused damage to the block or mortar over...
  18. That's an interesting point... concrete blocks...

    That's an interesting point... concrete blocks are of course very porous but is the poured concrete in the rebar cores non-porous?

    Any waterproofing applied to the interior of block wall?
  20. Was that a below-ground concrete block retaining...

    Was that a below-ground concrete block retaining wall that was part of the lower level? If so it sounds like my situation. Did you consider excavating behind that wall and laying a new french drain...

    I'm also wondering what role if any the council plays here. Do they need to sign off on waterproofing work such as this?
  23. Hmm... yes that's true. But I while I'm fairly...

    Hmm... yes that's true. But I while I'm fairly confident that the internal treatment will keep the interior of the house dry I'm concerned that the water still making it's way in to the blockwork...

    I'm reading mixed reports on the effectiveness of internal wall treatment. I'm thinking of taking the external excavation approach even though it's probably gonna be expensive.. I'm waiting nervously...
