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 quality.
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.
