Foundation Cracks and Crack Repair
If you've notice foundation cracks around your home, it's important that you have crack repair carried out as soon as possible to avoid further damage to the base that your home rests upon. The small foundation cracks which you see may seem harmless now, but with time they will grow larger and larger, especially if they are horizontal foundation cracks. These cracks, if not taken care of immediately with crack repair services from Frontier, will expand and can eventually start allowing water to enter inside. Then, you will not only have foundation damage to content with, but a wet basement as well.
Steer clear of these headaches by having our crack repair team handle any foundation cracks found around your home in Clarksville, Bowling Green, Nashville, or surrounding areas in KY and TN.
Foundation Cracks Cause Wet Basements
As stated above, foundation cracks can eventually cause wet basements. Foundation cracks which go un-repaired for weeks, months, and years at a time will begin to grow larger in size. This large opening in your foundation will naturally allow precipitation to get inside. This means that if there's a heavy downpour, a lot of the rainwater is going to seep inside through the foundation crack and make its way into your basement. This could mean destruction of your family room, home theater, gym, home office, kids' playroom, or any personal belongings your family has stored in this area underneath your home.
Places to Look for Cracks

If there is a wall crack problem at your home, it is quite critical that you have foundation crack repair carried out ASAP. If a foundation problem is found early enough, it could be relatively easy to repair the problem without a lot of excavating or digging your foundation out and reconstructing the structure. This can be a a lot less costly, intrusive, and time-consuming fix, therefore it is crucial that you catch the issue as early as you can. Also, fixing the foundation without reconstructing it is going to correct the problem that triggered the foundation problem. Reconstructing the foundation replaces the unsuccessful foundation wall with a brand new one - one that encounters exactly the same problems that ruined the first wall. Frontier Basement Systems implements a variety of foundation repair products and solutions to handle foundation structural problems, such as foundation wall anchors, foundation push piers, and foundation helical piers.
Today, property owners and professionals are able to easily repair the concrete foundation leak by using a liquid urethane injection process. The urethane is inserted straight into the crack in a liquid form. The urethane actually starts to foam and expand inside the split. This expansion fills up the crack from top to bottom and from front to back. Once completed, the foundation crack won't allow any water into the basement. Also, the repair provides a solution to the problem because water cannot enter the crack and deposit salts, which would result in a failure of the bond between the foam and cement foundation.
