Poured Foundation Crack Injection Repairs
American Basement Waterproofing specializes in crack injection repairs that permanently stop basement leaks in poured concrete walls. Work can be performed from the inside of your home any time of the year.
Our high expansion polyurethane hydro-foam is the best injection product on the market. The reasons are (1) polyurethane hydro-foam is hydrophobic and has excellent adhesion, (2) the product does not react for several minutes after injection, which provides the time necessary to fully permeate all parts of the crack, and (3) polyurethane hydro-foam does not shrink, thus can withstand normal settlement conditions which include the expansion and contraction of basement walls during the summer and winter months.
The crack injection repair photo (outside view) demonstrates American's high expansion polyurethane hydro-foam injection material expanding from the inside to the outside of the basement wall. As a result, water can no longer enter the crack and leak into the basement. The product also seals the top of the basement wall. This prevents water from entering the crack through brick ledges and mortar joints. See us in American Homes and Gardens.
Warning Signs of a Potentially Serious
Some basement leaks, many previously repaired by our competitors, can pose health and safety risks if water comes into contact with electrical wiring or creates a mold problem. Mold thrives
in wet basements, especially in finished basements where it can grow
on and behind damp drywall, paneling, and carpeting. No
type of mold is good for your health. When dry, mold spores can
become airborne and circulate throughout the home. Common health problems caused by mold exposure are headaches, fatigue, eye irritation, runny nose, sneezing, cough, congestion, upper respiratory infections, and worsening asthma. The warning signs of a potentially serious problem are:
- Mold, mildew, and musty odors
- Damaged, warped, or dry-rotting paneling or drywall
in finished basements
- Cracked, stained, or discolored walls and floors
caused by water leaks
- Damp or wet basement walls, carpeting, and
- Cracked, chipped, or peeling paint or spray coating
on basement walls
- Spiders, water bugs, termites, and other insects
thriving on water leakage
