A small leak will
sink a great ship ...
Most concrete foundation cracks are strictly leaking
problems, especially during heavy rains and snow
melt. Not only can excess water in the basement
potentially damage and ruin valuable items, but
chances for mold and mildew growth are significantly
higher, which directly impacts a home’s indoor air
Basement wall cracks also have
the ability to widen. While a particular crack may
not necessarily be a problem at the time that can
change as soon as the next heavy rain storm arrives.
After a foundation crack forms, the prospect of
water seepage (whether slight or major) is not a
matter of if, but a matter of when.
If water leakage from a
foundation crack is minimal now, the potential exist
for the crack to widen, allowing further seepage
into the basement.
Overall Ottawa offers its
services for repairing leaking or dry cracks in
concrete bridge walls, decks, tanks, and
foundations. Using epoxy and urethane methods are
offered using high pressure injection pumps or dual
manual injection guns.
We inject polyurethane into the crack this repair is
done from the inside eliminating costly excavation
from the outside. Concrete polyurethane is
especially formulated for concrete repair, which
expands at the contact of water to fill the crack
the polyurethane will remain flexible, thus stopping
the leak permanently.
