Basement Leak Repair
When you have cracks in your basement walls or floors, they can let a lot of moisture leak inside. When this happens, you may notice that you have stains on your walls, floors, or ceilings. Also, you may see that there is water pooling up in spots on the floor. All of this moisture is not healthy, and it can cause a variety of problems in your home. This includes wood rot and decay, mold growth, and damage to the foundation. At Rigidize Foundation Technologies, we can fill and seal the cracks so they don't let in any moisture.
Solution - Crack Injection
It's important that you get wall and floor cracks repaired as soon as you notice them so that you don't need to deal with a wet basement under your home. At Rigidize Foundation Technologies, we can make use of a polyurethane foam injection technique to stop water from entering into the home through cracks in the foundation. The liquid polyurethane material is able to fill the entire crack from the earth to the surface of the wall or floor. The material expands as it cures, and this will fill the opening up completely so that no moisture will ever be able to get inside and cause problems.
The foam material we use has proven again and again to be effective at filling and sealing all types of cracks, including horizontal, vertical, and stair-step varieties. There are many advantages to using this type of crack repair technique. The polyurethane resins are flexible, and they allow the resin to move with the wall when it expands and contracts.
It also has the following advantages over other types of repair techniques:
- Seals the foundation walls and gets rid of air leaks
- Repair work can be done from inside of the home.
- Reduces humidity levels in the basement.
- Eliminates water vapor permeation through the concrete.
- Stops active leaks and remains flexible.
The crack injection technique we use forms an incredibly strong bond that helps this area of the basement wall to become very strong. It can fill small cracks or large cracks. Our foundation repair and waterproofing professionals will be able to address any questions or concerns that you may have about the repair process, or about the products that we install. Don't let the cracks in your wall get bigger or lead to more structural damage to your home; get them repaired right away.
