Why Do Basement Wall Cracks Appear?
Cracks can develop as soon as your house is built or over long periods of time. Below are a few of the reasons this may occur.
Shrinkage may occur at the very beginning stages of a housing development. Cement dries too quickly after being poured causing the cement to shrink and small cracks may appear throughout the foundation.
Settling is a natural process that land goes through over time. It begins from the time your house is built and continues on, this settling can lead to small cracks developing in your foundation. This begins to be a problem when the compression of the settling becomes too great and cracks begin to get bigger.
Movement is a common way cracks can appear in your home. When water begins to build up in the soil near your foundation, it may cause an enormous amount of pressure on the wall. Cracks then begin to form and may cause leaks inside your home.
How To Fix Basement Wall
At United Waterproofing we will inspect your foundation to figure out where the cracks are, why they’re appearing, and use our best methods to ensure the problem gets solved.
Injection: After a crack is located a polyurethane resin will be injected deep inside. This will permanently seal the crack in your foundation, preventing water from leaking in.
Sealant: Rather than an injection method that spreads throughout the crack, a sealant is used to patch only the exterior of the crack. This blocks the flow of water, and redirect it to a drainage system so that water doesn’t continue to damage your home.
