Home 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.

Home Poured Foundation Crack Injection Repair (Outside View)

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. (Interior and exterior surface repairs fail to seal the top portion of the crack).

Home American Repairs Cracks in Poured Basement Walls For as Little as $225.

polyurethane epoxy crack repair

American offers a professional grade slow curing polyurethane epoxy surface sealant as a proactive repair on cracks that do not leak or rarely leak. The polyurethane epoxy repair is backed by the American Basement Waterproofing Lifetime Transferable Warranty.

Additional charges may apply for abnormalities, the removal of obstructions, such as drywall or paneling, and previous repair work.

Professional grade slow curing polyurethane epoxy surface sealants are great solutions for proactive repairs. They are designed to prevent shrinkage and allow for expansion, contraction, and normal settlement. Fast setting epoxies and hydraulic cement eventually shrink, lose adhesion, and fail.


Warning Signs of a Potentially Serious Problem

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 floors
  • • Cracked, chipped, or peeling paint or spray coating on basement walls
  • • Spiders, water bugs, termites, and other insects thriving on water leakage
