Foundation Repair

 

Often times Homeowners find that cracks often lead to water seeping from the exterior of the home into there 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.   

 

Crack Repair and Waterproofing

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.

 

 

Bowing Wall Repair

                                        Bowing walls, if left unchecked can continue to slowly move over time and create water                                                      seepage, as well as serious structural damage. There are a several solutions depending on                                                each unique situation, that can address these issues.

 

                                        One of the solutions we offer are the Gorilla Brace Systems. The Gorilla Wall Brace System is a                                          revolutionary solution that will not only repair bowing and buckled walls, but it will actually                                                prevent any future structural problems as well.

 

The Gorilla Wall Brace system has numerous benefits. For example:

 

  • Allows users to avoid the high cost of excavation

  • Pushes off of 3 floor joists, reducing pushing stress

  • Quick installation

  • It can repair already bowed and buckling walls

  • It pressure can easily be controlled to fit the need

  • It will increase structural integrity

  • An all-in-one solution!

 

Our second most used solution for minimally bowed walls and cracks is the Carbon Hold System.

 

The Carbon Hold System is a permanent solution that can fix cracked walls and bowed foundation walls with the most minimal effect on the look of your basement. At ten times the strength of steel, it can not only be used to repair bowing walls, but also cracks in a basement.  

 

This system can be applied to almost any concrete wall. In cases where wall movement

is a concern, the Carbon Hold system will structurally isolate any movement in the wall

so that the crack will not move and reopen a new leak. Once it is applied, the crack repair

system can easily be painted.
