Our foundation crack repair methods first take into consideration the underlying cause of the foundation crack. After determining the cause of the foundation crack we begin the foundation crack repair process. Wall cracks in a foundation can be repaired from either the interior or exterior of your home. For example, if the basement is unfinished and the crack is exposed on the inside, it is typically best to perform foundation crack repair through our Epoxy / Urethane Injection method, which involves a two step process. First, we seal the inside portion of the crack with an epoxy paste. We then proceed by injecting a urethane resin that fills the entire crack all the way to the outside soil.
Alternatively, if a foundation crack is obstructed by paneling or drywall, we can address this problem from the exterior of the home by utilizing our Wall-Clay method. This involves coring a small hole into the earth at the crack’s location. Next, the hole is filled with a granular clay in order to form an impermeable water barrier.
Both of the above processes are minimally invasive and are proven to be equally effective. Each foundation crack repair comes with a transferable lifetime warranty.
Most foundation wall cracks do not pose any structural concerns. However, certain crack patterns and cracks that are wider than 1/8” can be a sign of significant structural damage that should be further evaluated.
