Wall Crack Repair

           Repaired Basement Wall Crack

Vertical wall cracks are commonly found around windows, service pipes, corners, and in long spans of open foundation walls. They commonly leak water , if not repaired, over time more water enters and the crack can become larger.  Basement walls have earth pressure pushing inward against them. Hydrostatic pressure build-up and settlement can lead to wall and floor cracking. The ground around your foundation moves a few times a year. In winter when the ground freezes frost expands the soil. Also, wet soil expands in spring and rainy season. If drainage is poor and the soil adjacent to the basement walls becomes saturated or frost penetration becomes severe, the force pushing against the walls may become extremely high causing a crack in the foundation and/or basement leaks.  In summer when the ground becomes dry from lack of water soil will contract.

Your guaranteed solution to basement leaks and a crack in the foundation is the polyurethane concrete wall crack repair system with a 20 year transferable warranty. The Polyurethane Wall Crack Repair is a permanent solution!  

Polyurethane Wall Crack Repair Process:

 

Waters Basement Services seal the crack with a special flexible sealant on the surface of the crack from top to bottom.  This bead of sealant will slow, and in many cases stop, the flow of water through the crack.  We then stick the wicking drain strip material to the sealant, and tuck it into the drainage created at the floor.  An overcoat of special sealant is applied over the wicking strip overlapping onto the concrete wall at least 2” on each side.  The wicking strip is covered completely, creating a sealed patch from the top of the crack to the bottom.  The wicking strip is a bond breaker between the top coat of sealant and the wall.  It serves to wick any water that gets past the first bead of sealant down into the drainage below. The polyurethane wall crack repair system will not crack, leak and can flex.
