IDENTIFY BASEMENT CRACKS QUICKLY AND REPAIR EFFECTIVELY
Many homeowners are faced with problems associated with fine to visible cracks and shifts in basement foundations. Internal signs of foundation problems could include cracks in the ceilings and walls, separation of skirting boards, doors, and windows, cracks in the fireplace, soft or sloping floors, cracking in the tiles, tears or creases in the wallpaper.
External signs could include cracks in bricks or mortar, corners not flush, separation of window and door frames which are just some of the early warning signs with basement cracks. For all this, concrete is the most commonly used material for basements’ floor and wall. When excess water and air mix and are not removed properly, the concrete is more likely to crack, and water will penetrate through the wall or floor.
What causes cracks in the first places? One of the reasons is if the ground around the basement contains too much water, it will increase pressure on the basement’s internal wall and floor dramatically and force water to penetrate. While tile drainage around a house is blocked, excess water will cause higher pressure on the basement’s walls and floor and lead to cracks.
How we fix basement cracks in Markham
We also know that hydrostatic pressure from the soil around the perimeter of the foundation can cause cracks. These expand over time, especially after being subjected to temperature changes. Crack injections are a quick and easy solution to this problem, especially if the damage isn’t too severe. We inject a waterproof epoxy solution into cracks before sealing the surface.
There are many ways to tackle basement waterproofing, and it all depends on your property’s architecture, the condition of foundation walls, and surrounding conditions. We investigate the root cause of water-related problems and recommend the right solutions.
