Basement Foundation Wall Repair by Injection
A cracked basement foundation wall can be repaired to stop water from entering your basement with injections by our basement waterproofing contractor. Our injection method is effective enough that we offer a full lifetime transferable warranty with the purchase of our basement foundation wall injection service. In addition to our injection service, we offer other basement / foundation waterproofing services that will leave your basement dry and your basement wall protected from water seepage.
Epoxy Basement / Foundation Concrete Crack Injection
Epoxy crack injection does not only stop water but also provides structural strength. Like the familiar epoxy glue, it fills the crack and “glues” the concrete. Its strength and bond with concrete greatly exceed the strength of the concrete itself. And the high bond and tensile strengths of epoxy prevents further elongation and yawning of structural cracks. Epoxy low pressure crack injection method insures that the full depth and length of the crack is filled. It fills cracks in walls up to 24 inches thick.
Polyurethane Resin Basement / Foundation Concrete Crack Injection
Over 95% of residential basement cracks are non-structural - the only problem is the seepage of water. A polyurethane concrete crack injection does not add structural strength; it just forms a barrier impenetrable to water. Polyurethane resin remains flexible, which allows for continuous natural movement of the concrete due to thermal shrinkage and expansion or settling. It bonds tenaciously to dry or wet concrete. It can be used to repair wet or even leaking cracks. The polyurethane polymer forcefully expands, which ensures that the full depth and length of the crack is filled. It fills cracks in walls up to 24 inches thick. Polyurethane can expand over 20 times its volume. If there is a void on the backside of the wall, it will fill it too - there is no way for water to ever find the crack again. If the crack in the foundation wall is above ground, then we will seal the crack on the other side temporarily with a caulk. The polyurethane polymer has low viscosity to fill hairline cracks but expands to fill wide cracks (up to 3/4 inch). We use the highest-quality two-component polyurethane. There are inexpensive single-component polymers on the market but they are not suitable for repair of cracks subjected to water pressure. We use hydrophobic polyurethane, which repels water. In contrast, hydrophilic foams absorb water and when allowed to repeatedly dry out, like in a basement, they release the water molecules and slowly crumble.
Polyurethane can also be used to create a water-resistant seal in rod holes, cold joints, electrical conduits, septic projections, well/water lines, and many other applications.
Concrete Crack Injection
A basement / foundation wall concrete crack is the very kind of result that can occur in your basement foundation wall. This kind of crack can be the result of cracks that formed when the poured concrete cured, which widened due to settlement, hydrostatic pressure and shrinkage due to the freezing and thawing throughout the year.
Cold Joint Seal
Cold joints form when different sections of a concrete wall are poured at different times, resulting an unbonded area between the two sections of concrete wall. An example of this is where the basement floor meets the foundation wall. This space within the concrete wall can be sealed from the inside in most cases.
Electrical Hydro Panel Leak
The spot in the wall where Hydro enters can eventually leak, and if you noticed water in that area behind the panel board, or water leakage from the hydro conduit, it may be a sign that you suffer from a Hydro projection leak. Due to the danger of high voltage, it is necessary that a specialist with proper training inspect the area before proceeding with the repair from inside or outside.
When concrete is poured, air pockets or poorly mixed concrete can form cavities. Water can compromise the cavity causing leakage. This type of problem can be sealed in a number of ways. Either by injection or our AquaPack product.
