Crack Repairs

Foundation crack repairs from the inside. We inject the crack from the inside with polyurethane.

There are five basic steps to be done when injecting a crack in concrete that is leaking water. This is crack injection 101. Learn these steps and you will be well on your way to understanding what it takes to seal a water leak in concrete. In future articles, we will explore every one of these steps in more detail and address the multitude of options (such as port selection, hole spacing, depth, what to do when you hit rebar, etc.)  But for right now, we are going to discuss the most basic steps.

Step 1: Drill holes. Use a hammer drill to drill holes in the concrete that intersect the crack. These holes are usually drilled at a 45 degree angle to intersect the crack halfway through the structure so that the resin is forced towards the front and back of the crack.

Step 2: Flush the holes. When you drill, you create concrete dust. If you don’t flush this dust out of the holes, it will be forced into the crack during injection and may clog the crack preventing resin from getting where it needs to go. Put a flexible hose all the way to the back of the hole so that water flushes the dust from the back of the hole to the surface of the concrete. Flush until clean water is flowing.

Step 3: Install your injection port. The port is what seals the hole and gives the injection pump a direct connection to the crack.

Step 4: Flush the crack. Unless water is pouring out of the crack, you will need to inject clean water through the injection port and into the crack.

This serves several purposes:
• Cleans the crack of dirt and other contaminates to allow resin to flow freely.
• Gives you an idea of how far and how easily the resin will flow into the crack when you start injecting the foam.
• Helps to open areas that the resin wouldn’t otherwise flow. Water is thinner than resin and will penetrate deeper and into tighter areas.
• Ensures the resin will have enough moisture to react with.

Step 5: Inject the resin. Always use the lowest pressure that will continuously feed resin into the crack.
High Pressure Advantage
We inject cracks with a pressure of up to 3000 psi effectively sealing the crack with poly urethane. This is much more effective than those do it yourself kits which use low pressurre and never pentrate the crack. They all leak in a few years.

We are so confident we offer a 25 yr warranty which is transferable to the next owner.
