Basement Crack Injection and Repair:
Basement cracks have become a regular happening nowadays, in old and new buildings alike. These basements show signs of water seepage through the cracks and leaks found in them. Some of the most common and probable reasons for house basement cracks and leaks are grading, poor drainage, settling of the soil around the basement area, or ground water. In many cases, the damage occurring in the basement comes to light only after a major crack or water leak, and wall movement happens. Hence, regular inspection of the basement area and maintenance is a necessity, particularly in older buildings.

Types of Basement Crack:
Basement cracks can be horizontal, vertical or hairline cracks. Horizontal cracks are formed on the walls that are subjected to a pressure exerting laterally. These cracks occur in the center portion of the wall, and cause considerable structural damage, sometimes causing the wall to bulge or bow. Vertical cracks, on the other hand, are caused by the shrinking of concrete. The shrinking, maybe due to settlement happening in the area around the basement or could have happened during the curing of the concrete. The other type of crack mentioned above is the hairline crack, which does not threaten a potential structural damage but can be the points of water seepage.
