Poured wall crack injection is the most effective way to repair foundation cracks from the inside of the foundation. The process involves attaching one-way ports every 6 to 10 inches along the crack and then sealing the entire crack with a 2-part pasteover material. After this is done, either an epoxy or urethane foam product is injected through the ports into the crack. After the installer is sure the crack is full of product, the ports are removed and a finish coat is applied to the area leaving the home owner with a watertight repair.
When repairing foundation cracks it is important to realize you are not just stopping an annoying puddle on the basement floor, but you are taking a step to improve your home's ecosystem. Cracks that leak water allow moisture into your home which can lead to mold problems. That mold can pose health risks for your family. Even if the crack is not visibly leaking water, it can still be leaking dangerous soil gases like Radon directly into your home. According to the EPA, Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer in non-smokers and a serious health concern for homeowners. Properly injected cracks cannot only stop the water leak, it can also provide health benefits to the home's occupants.
Epoxies are recommended for structural crack repairs. Unlike polyurethane foams, epoxies will not expand. However, they cure to an incredibly hard solid that securely bonds to the concrete, making them ideal for structural repairs. Two-component epoxies are strong, durable and provide a watertight structural bond. Epoxies also create a more powerful bond than concrete, resulting in an extremely strong structural repair.
Our premium polyurethane structural foam expands inside the crack up to six times its volume to provide a watertight structural bond. This product cures quickly to form a non-flexible solid to aid in structural reinforcement.
The most advanced and popular material for repairing a typical leaking foundation crack. It is a truly flexible product when cured, allowing it to expand and contract over time with foundation movement and freeze/thaw cycles. This product expands up to 30 times it's volume inside the crack making it an excellent solution for filling large voids in and behind your foundation wall.
