Polyurethane Crack Injection
At AKME Waterproofing, we pride ourselves on serving our customers needs as we would serve our own family. – with honesty and integrity. What is the real source of the leak issue and therefore what is the Right solution for your problem?
Poured Concrete Foundation walls rarely need an Interior Drain Solution, which allows the water to enter and be redirected outside. It is the only foundation where you can Stop the water from intruding, via an interior applied Polyurethane Injection. This application requires a lot less labor and materials, compared to an interior drain, and therefore is much less expensive, yet the Right Solution, because it prevents the water from entering the home. The vast majority of the time it is a leaking crack or pipe penetration. This is the ideal, long term solution. We’ve done this on the Owner’s personal home, even when an interior drain was an option. And, he had custom oak bookshelves built in front of it b/c he knows he’ll never need to get back to that crack again. If we can keep the water out, there’s no need for a drain to carry it away.
IF there is Hydrostatic Pressure, causing water to push up b/w the slab and the foundation wall, then an Interior Drain is the only solution. Again, this is only seen a few times a year, very unlikely that this is your leak issue. But, if this is you, then we have a permanent Interior Drain solution to address this type of problem.
Carbon Fiber Stitching
Carbon Fiber Stitches are a low cost, added solution that provides permanent stability to a crack; providing long term protection to the integrity of the leak repair injection.
Stitches can also be utilized on cracks in both vertical poured concrete walls as well as poured concrete slabs, where it’s only a structural stability concern and there’s no water leak issue.
