Epoxy crack injection
foundation wall crack
Foundation wall cracks are the most common source of seepage in poured concrete foundations. They are caused most frequently by stress, settling or shrinkage during the concrete’s curing process.
In general, most cracks are hairline (less than 1/8” wide) and run vertically or diagonally from the top of the foundation wall down to the bottom. They also go all the way through the wall which is why they leak. In the event your foundation walls are covered by paneling or drywall, our Basement Advisor can usually locate the crack(s) on the exterior if the top of the foundation wall is exposed above the ground level.
We offer crack repair solutions from both the exterior and interior. Our Basement Advisor will recommend the best method of repair based on site conditions.
Most cracks do not pose structural concerns. The ones that do tend to be wider than 1/8”, run horizontally or stair step into the mortar of the above grade exterior brickwork. Other common signs include a buckled / bowed foundation wall (see Wall Bracing), a sinking foundation, drywall cracks and upstairs doors and windows that tend to stick or not close easily.
