Many Homeowners with Poured-in-Place Concrete Foundations will find Cracks in their Basement Walls on Closer Inspection
Basement cracks develop by drying shrinkage, thermal movement, and other causes. If minor, they will cause no immediate problems. But over time, minor cracks often grow larger and cause major headaches, including reduced structural integrity or water leakage.
Homeowners with a leaky basement can have these cracks fixed permanently. Often without costly, disruptive excavation by using pressure injection with epoxy resin or water activated, hydro-active polyurethane foam repair materials.
We now offer Do It Yourself Basement Waterproof Resin Coating Products as Kits for leak repair and structural basement crack repair.
By sealing smaller cracks with a DIY Crack Repair Kit, the homeowner may save a significant amount of money. Even if a crack is not leaking yet, eventually water might find a way through it. We supply commercial grade epoxy resins and leak seal water activated polyurethane foams for all types of foundation crack and wall crack repairs.
Crack injection has been performed and improved on for several decades. In many cases, crack injection will fix the problem. The injection procedure will permit to fill the crack in full, from front to back, with epoxy resin or polyurethane grout. Injection has shown to be effective for filling cracks from 0.001 to over 2 inches wide. It can also be used to fill cracks in concrete floors and ceilings.
In most cases homeowners can have these cracks fixed permanently without costly, disruptive excavation—using pressure injection of epoxy resin or polyurethane water stop foam repair materials.
Many Concrete Block Walls Leak
You may find damp areas in your block wall or even active leakage from grout lines in your wall. Check the perimeter of your wall and the cold joints where the wall meets with the foundation or floor for leaks. Fresh concrete does not bond well to existing concrete – a cold joint is created. If not properly waterproofed, a cold joint will be a passageway for water migration.
In many cases homeowners can have these cold joints fixed permanently without costly, disruptive excavation—using basement waterproofing products such as pressure injection polyurethane water stop foam and leak-seal injection repair materials.
