FOUNDATION CRACK REPAIR

Crack Injections

Surface treatments are never the right option for fixing concrete foundation cracks. The concrete foundation cracks need to be fixed with crack injection.

Typically, nonstructural cracks are repaired with crack injection materials. If the crack is nonstructural and merely leaking, many contractors install a simple polyurethane to stop the leak and fill the crack. However, if the poured wall is cracked it will most likely crack again. There is usually something causing the crack and weakening the wall. Because this epoxy will fill the crack, strengthen the wall, and stop the leak.

If the crack is moving it needs to be filled with an epoxy. Epoxy bonds to the concrete inside the cracks to create a rigid, solid repair. It literally makes the crack bond to the wall again as if the crack was never there. It makes the wall actually stronger than it was before. In addition to epoxy crack injection, some cracks that move (open and close) also need carbon fiber staples. The carbon fiber staples can stop the structural crack from moving.

If your foundation cracks are due to the foundation sinking, then fixing the crack is like putting a band-aid on when you need surgery. If the cracks in your foundation are a sign of settlement, then you may need piering to stop the settlement.

A combination of underpinning and carbon fiber wall supports and epoxy crack injection may be turn out to be the best solution.

Carbon Fiber Concrete Reinforcement

Introducing a revolutionary new concrete repair product designed to make crack reinforcement more efficient and less intrusive.

Carbon fiber concrete reinforcement is uniquely engineered to permanently stop cracks in concrete slabs, poured walls, masonry, concrete block foundations, columns, industrial buildings, bridges, foundations, swimming pools, as well as preparation for floor coatings.

Additionally, it is designed for cracks of various sizes under virtually any circumstance and can even be used to increase seismic strength to repairs after an earthquake. Another benefit is the minimal aesthetic impact of the repair which can easily be painted over or covered with a finishing product.

Unparalleled Strength

The patent-pending system permanently locks both sides of the crack together, preventing any further movement. Once set in place, using structural epoxy resin, it welds the crack together maximizing the tensile strength of the carbon fiber, unlike steel products this eliminates any potential for corrosion.

Common Causes of Foundation Cracks:

Let’s face it, there are two types of concrete. One, concrete that has cracked, and two, concrete that is going to crack. Concrete is brittle, and cracking is inevitable so just because you’ve got a crack doesn’t mean you’ve got a problem. Cracks that spread, are wider at one end than the other and surfaces that are out of alignment indicate problems.

Most Common Cause of Failure

Hydraulic pressure – exterior forces can push against your foundation walls causing cracks, bowing and ultimately wall failure.

The ground loses its bearing capacity – saturated soil, poorly compacted fill, and tree roots are all major contributors to the soil losing its ability to support your foundation. Foundation cracks are your homes way of telling you there is a problem.  Signs include cracked foundations, interior wall cracks (especially running at a 45-degree angle from doors and windows), doors and windows that won’t open properly, stair-step cracking in brick or block walls, and sloping floors.
