Crack Injection: Cracks often originate from a point of weakness such as the corner of a window, a beam pocket, a utility penetration or from the cut-out of a door sill. Cracking is a common issue that occurs with poured foundations. Concrete walls will crack due to the release of water during the curing process or because of settlement. Cracks are commonly found near breaks in walls or in the middle of long walls uninterrupted by turns in the wall. These cracks often leak and surface repairs with rigid products such as hydraulic cement or epoxy will often fail within a couple of years. Proper crack repair requires that the cracks be fully filled with either epoxy resin or urethane foam. Foundation cracks are not all the same. Our field consultants can assist in choosing the right product and repair method, also will assure the proper crack preparation is performed.
Epoxy injection should be used for cracks that need to be structurally repaired. Epoxies can add a great amount of strength to a foundation and at times can even exceed the strength of the surrounding concrete. The epoxy injection process begins by cleaning the crack and the surrounding area of all debris. Injection ports are then inserted along the length of the crack. The epoxy is then injected through the ports until the crack is completely sealed.
