Repairing Leaky Basement Cracks

A basement flooding from the floors and walls

Water can enter a basement through and (and every) opening available -- including cracks in the wall, floor, and windows.

Pipe and wire penetrations in the walls are another significant point where water can intrude.

As concrete cures and the home settles and ages over time, it's just a matter of time before a few cracks appear in your foundation and floor. If these cracks are deep enough, they'll provide a way for water to enter your home.

When not addressed quickly enough, flooding through cracks can develop into a serious problem. In some extreme cases, we've seen water literally gush in through openings in basement walls and floors.

Lasting Repairs For Leaking Cracks

There are many crack repair solutions on the market. Most of them work some of the time.

The key to repairing these cracks is to find a solution that will not work its way lost from the basement wall.

This means that the system will either need to be mechanically attached to the wall -- or it must be able to flex with the concrete, which shrinks and expands with moisture level and temperature changes.
