Foundation cracks are a common yet potentially alarming issue faced by homeowners. These fractures in poured foundation walls can emerge due to natural concrete curing processes or settlement over time. Foundation cracks not only vary in size but also have the potential to vertically span the entire basement wall or even run horizontally along the foundation wall, posing significant challenges and risks.
One of the most concerning aspects of foundation cracks is their ability to allow water ingress into your foundation walls. This can result in damage to finished work, carpets, and the overall structural integrity of the home. Additionally, in block foundations, “stair-stepping” cracks can compromise the stability and safety of the structure.
Addressing foundation cracks demands expertise, precision, and the use of effective repair methods. At King Waterproofing and Foundation Solutions, we distance ourselves from subpar and temporary fixes. Instead, we employ an advanced injection process utilizing Hydrophilic Urethane, a robust solution renowned for its effectiveness.
Hydrophilic Urethane is a foam-like composition that is injected into the foundation cracks. It fills the entire fracture and expands in reaction to the presence of water, ensuring a comprehensive and enduring solution to water ingress. This method not only seals the cracks but also fortifies the foundation against future occurrences of cracks and water damage.
For homes with block foundations experiencing “stair-stepping” cracks, our use of Helical anchors is instrumental in restoring and enhancing foundation stability. These anchors offer targeted support and reinforcement, effectively addressing the unique challenges posed by this type of foundation cracks.
hoosing King Waterproofing and Foundation Solutions means entrusting your home to a team dedicated to excellence, efficiency, and effective solutions. Foundation cracks, with their varied nature and potential implications, are addressed with customized solutions designed to ensure the long-term safety and stability of your home.
