Our Basement Crack Repair Solutions
Basement Wall Crack Injection
For basic basement wall cracks, we inject a specialized material into the crack that creates a lasting bond with the original wall that keeps the water out and the basement dry.
Our advanced material is flexible enough to withstand the wide temperature swings that we face in Connecticut, NY and MA. After the injection, all of our crack repairs are finished with a waterproof, fire retardant membrane with an appealing aesthetic.
Carbon Fiber Wall Epoxy Staples
When you have a cut, sometimes you need stitches to keep it closed – and the foundations inside your home are no different! While most cuts in concrete walls can be repaired with injection methods, sometimes we have to manually stitch the wall back together. A Carbon Fiber wall staple does just that.
With a Carbon Fiber wall staple, a countersunk staple is inserted and secured with epoxy into the wall. The crack is repaired and a membrane is installed over the work so your wall does not look like Frankenstein.
Carbon Fiber Wall Strips for Bracing Concrete Blocks
When hydrostatic pressure builds up in the soil, or the soils expand with water saturation, it can push against your wall and cause bowing. Over time, a bowing or leaning wall can cause serious structural damage in the rest of the home.
Budget Dry can stabilize bowing walls in concrete block using 12 in. x 8 ft. Carbon Fiber & Kevlar Strips. The strips are stronger than steel and have virtually a flat profile. This method strengthens displaced walls.
From time to time, crack repair is not enough to fix the structural problems in a foundation.
When a foundation settles or shifts laterally and cracks start to form, foundation repair may be necessary. Basement foundation cracks form because of a variety of reasons, including things like improper maintenance and troublesome landscaping around the foundation.
Foundation settling can occur as a result of these (and other) factors in a matter of years or even days, and it most commonly affects homes built on expansive clay or improperly compacted fill soils.
Foundation repair work is very technical, and should never be attempted without the direction of a professional basement contractor or basement foundation engineer. Contact us immediately if you think your basement crack may be structural.
