This will quite possibly involve an engineer, as the wall is most likely structural. Before you begin, make a trip to your local building department and verify what will be required. You may be pleasantly surprised to find that there are existing documents or an excepted alternative to engineering. Your local building official is the only one who can determine this for you. Hope this helps! Terry
The definition of an unfinished basement is a basement or lowest floor of a house that has not had finishing done on walls, floor and possibly ceiling. An unfinished basement would have just the foundation concrete for the floor and walls, with the the workings of the ceiling exposed.
If the basement is "finished" then yes. If it's a typical basement with exposed joists, no.
aaah! bcoz it's concrete!
It's colder in the basement than the water coming in the pipes. Seal up the vents and drafts in the basement. Wrap the pipes
Iron rusts in the presence of Oxygen.
A class 5 finish is meant for concrete exposed to the weather and/or harsh conditions.
Possible solutions for radon mitigation: good ventilation of the house, ventilation under the basement, plastic filter under the basement, good finishing of the basement and walls, etc.
Could be a thermostatically controlled heating source embedded in the concrete, or it may be that the concrete is absorbing heat from the sunlight to which it's exposed.

When we did our exposed concrete finish we used white sugar. This was a process used by our concrete finisher. He mixed it like a syrup and sprayed the forms. I used regular granulated sugar because it was a flat surface and I didn't have a sprayer... could try it on a small project first.
Exposed aggregate even in coastal climates can be very hot to walk on with bare feet, just like every other concrete or stone. Exposed aggregate is one of the best non-slip surfaces for around a pool. Besides going into specific customized rubberized toppings it is the best non-slip for a concrete.
Spalling: To break into fragments or small pieces."Spalling can be described as the breaking of layers or pieces of concrete from the surface of a structural element when it is exposed to the high and rapidly rising temperatures"
Conduit comes in many styles and is used to run electrical wiring in exposed locations in and around your home. It may be a basement, garage, barn, laundry areas, and also exposed areas.

(Choose all that apply)*=  Brushed (slip resistant)  Salt finished  Overlayment (new layer applied over existing concrete)  Design stenciled or etched into concrete  Granite or Slate simulation  Brick or cobblestone simulation  Colored exposed aggregate (stones)  Shiny wet look sealer  Colored concrete  Plain concrete with decorative borders  Smooth troweled finish  Complement house/yard  Match a sample
Both are methods of making concrete better at dealing with tension. Reinforced concrete is concrete that has a material that is good at dealing with tension added to it, typically steel, in the areas that are going to be subjected to tension. Prestressed concrete is concrete that is subjected to an extra compressive force, usually applied by placing a steel rod inside of the concrete that is stretched and then releasing the rod during curing thus placing the concrete beam in compression. then when the beam is exposed to tension the extra compression is negates the tension rather than the concrete being placed in tension.
Conduit is not required for residential electrical IF THE WIRING IS BEHIND THE WALL. If it's exposed wiring, you'll need to use conduit.
If an unfinished basement is to be used as a sleeping area it needs to be: * dry * ventilated * warm * have both natural light and artificial light fittings that work * have a safe egress in case of fire etc. * be electrically safe (no incomplete cabling or exposed wires) * have no tripping or falling hazards * have no exposed hazardous materials (including some insulation) * it may also need to have smoke alarms etc.
Photochromatic lenses are commonly called transition lenses. The lens is clear, but when exposed to the sun's UV rays, they will darken like sunglasses.
Transitions involving p, s, and n electrons
The number relates to the compressive strength of a cube of concrete when tested (i.e. 30 N/mm2 or 40N/mm2) The higher the number the greater the strength of the concrete. The choice of concrete grade is usually made at the design stage for the strucutre and effects the overall strength and resistance of the strucutre to decay. You would use a higher strength concrete in a more exposed environment. It is important to use the concrete grade specified for the proposed strucutre.
The portland cement is used in general construction.The type-II cement is used in general concrete construction exposed to moderate sulphate action. i.e.,Concrete to be used in marine conditions.Concrete to be used in the construction of sewage treatment works.
Mares that are already cycling (have already gone through transition and have ovulated) can be brought into heat with the use of prostaglandin products to "reduce" a CL and return the mare to heat.Mares that are not cycling can be exposed to an increased photoperiod to simulate increasing daylight which will bring the mare out of seasonal anestrus, in to transition and in to heat earlier than will happen if the mare is merely exposed to normal day/night length.
Use concrete if you will have any dirt behind the wall.
It depends on how large a hole you want to leave One way is to get the smallest concrete cutting disk you can hire and cut a square piece of concrete with the old anchor in it drill some holes in the side of the newly exposed concrete put pins in them sticking out so that when you refill the hole with new concrete and the new anchors the new concrete can't start moving. Use stainless steel for the pins, they can be bolts or any thing you can find, so long as they don't rust and are reasonably strong.
form_title=Foundation Drainage Installation form_header=8673 What is the reason for foundation drains to be installed or replaced?*=  "Water leaks through walls  Basement floods during storms  Excessive dampness  Concrete shifting or cracking  Discoloration, odors or rust  Mold, mildew, and /or fungus" Please describe the current condition of the area requiring drainage?*= () Wall is exposed () Wall is not exposed Are you repairing an existing foundation drainage system or in need of a new one?*= () Installation of new drainage system () Repair of existing drainage system
