Crack Injection Repair

Stopping water from entering your basement is important. Water can ruin personal possessions and can be an inviting place for mold and mildew growth. Water takes the path of least resistance which means that if there is a crack in your basement wall, that is where it will go. Stopping it from entering these cracks is the first step in preventing water damage.

Pro Foundation Technology, Inc. has the solution for stopping water from entering your basement through the cracks in your walls. We use polyurethane foam, made by Earth Contact Products (ECP). Injecting polyurethane foam is the best way to stop water leaks from entering through wall cracks. The liquid urethane fills the entire foundation crack and once in the crack, it begins to expand inside the crack. This foam fills the crack and prevents future water leaks. Water will remain outside of the wall and will not be able to penetrate the wall.

Advantages to Crack Injections

One of the main advantages to the ECP polyurethane resins is their ability to remain flexible. This flexibility allows the resin to move with the wall during expansion and contraction of the surrounding soils.  This specially formulated ECP polyurethane can even be injected into actively leaking cracks, stopping water within minutes. The advantages of ECP polyurethane are:

  • Remains flexible
  • Seals foundation walls
  • Eliminates air leaks
  • Application completed from the inside
  • Stops active leaks
  • Reduces humidity and water vapor permeation

The ECP polyurethane injection products are heavy-duty, commercial-grade quality products. These products are designed to perform reliably and economically and produce professional results. Polyurethane is a fast-setting foam that can accommodate slight concrete movement so the seal will stay intact. It also hardens within minutes after injection. This reduces the chances of the material flowing out of an injected crack while still in liquid form.
