- About Us
Do you have cracks in your basement wall or in your concrete floor? The old saying is “There are two types of concrete – concrete that’s cracked and concrete that’s going to crack”. If you have the first type of concrete – don’t be alarmed just yet. There are several key things to look for before you become concerned.
The most common crack repairs are those in poured basement walls. These cracks often will leak during a heavy rain. The most common repair option is to inject the crack with a polyurethane or an epoxy to stop the water flow and seal the crack. Other methods include digging out the outside of the structure and making a repair from outside.
For cracks in flat work (concrete slabs) a repair can be as simple as sealing the crack with caulk, filling with cement or making a structural repair with epoxy. In some cases we can stitch the floor back together by using a technique with carbon fiber to strengthen the crack repair.
Other crack could be a sign of a foundation problem and larger repairs may be required. If you have a crack you are concerned about fill out the form on the right of the page or send us an email with photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
