Are you wondering how to fix a leaky basement wall? If you have water leaking into your basement through cracks in your foundation, it’s important to get those cracks sealed up and repaired before the damage gets worse. Water intrusion will only make your foundation cracks larger over time, and can cause major damage to the structure of your home.
An unstable foundation can eventually form cracks that are big enough to allow water to seep through. Some foundation cracks are harmless and just happen over time as your home settles. These are usually small, vertical cracks and can be sealed with an epoxy or another type of injection. However, if you have larger, horizontal cracks in your foundation or basement walls, these indicate serious structural issues and cannot be solved by any type of sealant. These types of cracks need to be addressed by a structural engineer, and a more permanent solution needs to be put in place.
If your Virginia home is suffering from basement leaks, Atlas Master Companies offers ECP Epoxy and Polyurethane Injection Resins to permanently seal cracks and prevent water from entering your home. These systems are designed to fill cracks in your foundation before they start to widen and expand.
Epoxy injections can be used to mend concrete cracks and restore the structural integrity of the wall or slab. Polyurethane foam injections work great for larger cracks or voids around pipe penetrations.
Epoxy injections restore the integrity of the foundation by sealing cracks as small as .005″. One important feature of the ECP polyurethane resins is the flexibility which allows it to move with the wall as the soil expands and contracts.
