Large foundation cracks brought great concern to this Lambertville homeowner who spotted several on multiple walls.
To ensure extra protection, FlexiSpan Foam Drain Strips are applied over the first layer of the Flexispan Sealant.
FlexiSpan tape is applied to keep the Drain Foam Strips in place before the final layer of FlexiSpan sealant is applied.
WaterGuard Drainage System is installed as a precaution in case water were to break through.
Second layer of FlexiSpan is applied over the Foam Drain Strip. The second layer provides a permanent seal on the crack because it is not only tough and flexible but waterproof to prevent water damage and mold. A layer of Sealant is also applied to any crack on the outside foundation of the home to prevent water leakage as well.
This basement in Lambertville NJ had vertical cracks on several walls of the foundation. The homeowner contacted Quality 1st to have a Specialist come out and discuss the options they had to find a permanent solution to the foundation problems.
Quality 1st Basement System installed FlexiSpan in the cracks of the foundation to prevent further damage and water from breaking through. FlexiSpan is a quick installation that provides a permanent solution that eliminates messy, unreliable epoxy or urethane injections. First bead of sealant is applied to the crack to stop crack leakage, then FlexiSpan Foam Drain strip is applied over the sealant as a precaution in case water manages to leak through which would direct the water down to the drainage system in the floor. Finally a tough, flexible, waterproof and permanent Sealant Overlay is applied.
The homeowner was amazed at how quickly the insulation process was and how clean and neat the product looked on his basement walls.
