Foundation Wall Crack Repair
When you first notice a basement or foundation wall crack, it may be of little concern. Over time, these can turn into leaks that will cause you to need basement waterproofing to be performed. The cracks can be in a number of patters either horizontal, vertical, or in a stair step. These are generally caused by foundation settlement, shrinking concrete, or outside pressure on the walls. To stay ahead of this issue and prevent any unnecessary water damage, we have a simple but very effective method of repairing foundation wall cracks.
If the wall crack has just formed and is not showing any signs of bowing or buckling, we can seal the crack with a liquid urethane material. This is a very sturdy material that must be applied specifically to the crack and allowed to cure to strengthen.

If the cracks are larger, we may use carbon fiber strips to strengthen the concrete along the crack and prevent future spreading. This is done by applying an epoxy to the strap while securing it to the wall. Once this has cured, it is stronger than steel and will prevent the crack from getting any wider.
