Often times Homeowners find that cracks often lead to water seeping from the exterior of the home into their basements, and other living spaces. At Basement Worx, we have several methods to repair these cracks and stop the water from entering these access points, due to these structural issues.
In the Greater Cincinnati area, one of the most common contributors to unwanted water in living spaces is cracks in the foundation. One of the solutions we offer is injecting the crack with Polyurethane. A Polyurethane injection is an economical method of repairing non-moving cracks in concrete walls, slabs, columns and piers and is capable of restoring the concrete to its pre-cracked strength. The injection will expand in and through the crack into the outside soil, and keep the water from invading the living space. Polyurethane foams are injected into the basement crack in a liquid form. This allows a gentle and slow filling process of the basement crack that will completely fill the crack. After a few minutes the polyurethane will begin to react with the water in the crack to begin foaming. Water is actually the catalyst that converts the liquid polyurethane into foam. This foaming action increases the volume of the polyurethane up to 30 times its liquid form.
