Alpharetta GA - Polyurethane Crack Injection

One of the top causes of basement leaks in homes with poured concrete foundations are leaking cracks in the foundation walls. Sometimes these cracks in the wall are signs of structural damage, however they can easily be resolved with a polyurethane crack injection to stop any further water intrusion. Then you can have the outside area can be inspected to ensure that the contributing source of water is addressed as well. Many of our competitors forget to address the outside issues which can cause further bowing, cracking and even structural damage over time. At Schmitt Waterproofing we strive to offer all-inclusive repairs to address all the issues surrounding the cracks in the foundation wall.

Crack Injection & Poured Concrete Foundation serving in Alpharetta GA

When owning a basement with a poured concrete foundation, it is typical to find cracks in the foundation walls. Often these fractures, or cracks, open wider over time due to hydrostatic pressure. Hydrostatic pressure means applying an excessive weight load to the foundation wall laterally. When water sits outside the foundation wall it makes the dirt much heavier which can open these cracks up larger, and at this point, the cracks begin to allow water to pass through. Typically, these fractures will be widest at the top of the wall and taper as they approach the footing. This is due to the bottom of the wall being structurally tied to the footing and not allowing as much movement in the foundation wall.

Crack Injection: Leaking Crack Repair serving in Alpharetta GA

The repair for a leaking crack in a poured concrete foundation wall is a polyurethane crack injection . This repair has become an industry standard practice with a few varying techniques to complete the repair. At Schmitt Waterproofing, we use a low-pressure crack injection to complete the repair. This allows us to inject the leaking crack in the foundation wall without having to drill into the foundation wall. The repair process begins with setting ports over the surface of the fracture approximately every 8-10” and sealing the surface of the crack all the way up. Once the crack has been prepped and surface sealed, the fracture is flushed out and cleaned, and then the polyurethane is injected into the crack to complete the repair. The polyurethane pushes its way all the way through the 9” thickness of the poured concrete foundation wall to form a watertight seal.
