Basement Wall Crack Repair
If you notice that your basement has cracks in the walls, then you need basement wall crack repair immediately. A basement wall crack in a poured basement foundation is generally caused by concrete shrinkage. This shrinkage can continue for three years after the basement wall has been initially poured and sometimes can occur even longer afterward. Even after this period, continued pressures, such as soil contraction and expansion, can cause further foundation cracks and separation.
For many years this problem has been repaired using various injection methods. The result is when the ground expands or contracts, more often than not the wall will start to leak once again.
Therefore, if your crack repair method is injection alone, the crack will often get larger and re-leak. Soil expansion and contraction causes foundation movement and re-leaking will occur. Basement Systems searched for a better way and found it -- the FlexiSpan Foundation Wall Crack Repair System patented by Basement Systems.
