Wall cracks in 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 and are the result of hydrostatic pressure or a settling foundation. 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.

Liquid Urethane Injection Solution
Whenever we are doing a basement crack repair service to the basement in a home, we use a polyurethane injection process. The process start with thoroughly cleaning the surface of the crack and the surrounding area to make sure that there is no dirt and/or debris that could effect the repair.
Once prepped, we begin injecting the polyurethane mixture into the crack until it is filled from the bottom to the floor surface. Once the liquid urethane is in the crack, it requires time to set and cure before it can be painted over or finished. Once the crack is sealed, it will prevent any water leakage in the future in your basement.
