Cracks in the foundation of your home are indicators of some type of foundation issue. Whether that is a settlement problem or bowing walls, rarely are foundation wall cracks a good thing to see around your home. While not all cracks are serious problems, it is important to know what type of foundation cracks are bad and will require repairs sooner than later. There are a number of different DIY repair methods and products sold at home improvement stores that could fix the issue but if you want the security of knowing the repair will last, working with a professional is the best way to go. We can inspect your home, tell you what has caused these foundation cracks and provide you with a repair solution that will last.
Problem: Basement & Foundation Wall Cracks
Wall cracks on your foundation or basement can indicate any number of issues. Cracks are generally an early warning sign for slow developing flaws in either structural or water related problems. Visibly, cracks can be horizontal, vertical, or random in different situations. While horizontal fractures usually show signs of a bowed wall, vertical or normal cracks can be a sign of foundation failure or waterproofing issues. Foundation settlement causes cracks along the wall or slab and poor exterior drainage causes leaky concrete cracks. Figuring out which problem came first and caused an 'after effect' of the next issue is what our certified technicians will provide during our inspection. You can contact our team at any time to get a free evaluation or for more information on our services.
Solutions: Wall Crack Repair
SafeBase™ Carbon Fiber
We will use a full size sheet of the SafeBase™ carbon fiber to permanently secure your wall and prevent any future cracks from appearing. After cleaning and preparing the surface, a full height sheet of carbon fiber is epoxied to the wall and attached at the sill plate and below the footer.
Liquid Urethane Injection
We use a liquid urethane material to prevent future basement wall leaks. First, the surface of the crack will be cleaned off so that dirt and debris don't get into it during the repair process. Next, the urethane material is injected into the opening, permanently sealing the crack. Once dry, you can paint over the repaired crack to match the rest of your basement interior or exterior finish.
