THE DRYSHIELD DIFFERENCE IN EPOXY CRACK INJECTION.
Property owners across Kitchener know that foundation cracks may appear anytime around the perimeter of the basement or may even penetrate the membrane – leading to leaky floors and wet basements.
To prevent outside water entering the basement, it is recommended to seal foundation cracks.
When a crack is under tension it opens up; therefore, a material that cannot withstand the tension will tear. Epoxy is the best material to use when a crack is under tension; however, a reinforced polyurethane crack injection will work just as well. For many applications, additional preparation is necessary in order to seal the crack. Where a surfacing material has been removed, we prepare the crack by using clean, compressed air, blow out any remaining debris and liquid, removing residue by high-pressure washing or steam cleaning and blowing any remaining water from the crack with clean compressed air.
Leave your foundation crack worries to DryShield
After the initial evaluation and estimate, your professional crack injection specialists at DryShield can repair cracks by injecting epoxy material into the prepared crack. The repaired area can be coated to closely match the surrounding area in both appearance and the type of protection provided. Larger cracks and spalls, where the concrete has chipped into small pieces resulting in a hole, are repaired by “stitching” the crack and then filling it with epoxy.
The most significant advantage of polyurethane crack injection is that it can be used regardless of the condition of the crack and the weather. It doesn’t matter if the crack is actively leaking, full of mud and/or mineral deposits, or if it is fine or wide. Polyurethane injection can involve a crack flushing process to clean out the crack prior to injection.
