Why You Need to Address Foundation Cracks Immediately
Foundation wall cracks are caused by the settling and shrinkage of concrete during the curing process. These cracks become the most common way that water penetrates a foundation. Water damage can lead to:
- Musty smells
- High humidity
- Mold on the walls
- Peeling or bubbling paint
- Wall stains
- Rust on items stored in the basement
- Water on the basement floor
Mold growth can lead to structural problems in your home and potential health issues for the inhabitants.
Foundation cracks usually run diagonally or vertically from the top of the foundation to the bottom and are less than 1/8″ wide (hairline). Because wall cracks go all the way through the foundation to the soil, we can perform foundation crack repair from the interior or the exterior.
Our foundation crack repair method is a two-step epoxy and urethane injection. The epoxy paste is used to set injection ports every 6″ from top to bottom of foundation crack repair and to bridge the surface of the crack. The Urethane is then injected into each port. This expands the entire crack from the top to bottom and through to the exterior, filling the crack through the entire foundation wall.
