I know they didn't used to, and my water heater is on a shared circuit from the builder, but that may have changed.

I've been known to run my tankless gas-powered water heater with my big computer UPS during power outages before, so we could get a shower or whatever. Doubt it would run the furnace fan.

Attach the fence to the house.

Is the hole next to the basement, or the garage? If garage, not a big deal on the waterproofing, because that wall doesn't need to be waterproofed if the other side...

The dimpled membrane protects and allows water to pass between it and the waterproofing. It's not the big deal. If they broke that, they probably also scraped off the waterproofing.

Yes, they need...

They've dug some impressive holes and moved a lot of dirt around, partly for site services perhaps, but I assume mostly to remove contaminated soil from the truck wreckers yard. It's good that it's...

I wouldn't touch the basement for 2 years, like Greg said. Not only to see what cracks or leaks develop, but because it's not going to be done well.

Wait, see what happens, use that time to...

Our building code allows for no tar paper or ice-and-water-shield under the shingles. Only one roll wide of tar paper is used at the eaves. It's crazy, but it mostly works. Will be replacing our...

It can be done well, but not for the price people want to pay. I know some companies want over 12" of subbase. 18" in some cases.

Not really. Find someone in a local paper. It's a small, easy job. Because of that, you're effectively going to be overcharged. Most companies don't like small jobs. Sounds like the sort of thing...
