Foundation Cracks are Whack

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014 by Cassandra Santiago

Foundation Cracks are Whack - Image 1Cracks in the basement wall not only let water seep in, but could be a warning sign of structural problems. The cracks are caused by concrete shrinkage, sometimes as part of the curing process, shifting or settling. As the cracks get worse, the wall could bow or push in and the repair could get even more expensive. The best thing to do is repair the crack as soon as possible and Quality 1st Basement Systems has several options. Read more about the different solutions and contact us with questions about what will work best for your foundation problems.

Foundation Repair Options

FlexiSpan seals foundation cracksFlexiSpan can repair a crack in concrete. First, a urethane-based sealant is used to seal the crack, then a special polyurethane ether foam strip is applied over the first seal. Very flexible, no amount of shifting will break the FlexiSpan seal.

Another option is CarbonArmor, a wall reinforcing system that can stabilize the wall and prevent further bowing. Stronger than concrete and 10 times stronger than steel, CarbonArmor is a tightly-woven carbon fiber that is applied to the wall with epoxy, and works on poured concrete or block walls. It’s a quick and affordable answer to reinforce the wall and prevent further damage.

Whichever method fits your budget and your home, Quality 1st Basement Systems has the answer to solve your basement and foundations issues. Call today for a free estimate.
