Cracks in your foundation can result in serious damage to interior spaces of your Milwaukee home. Addressing these issues as quickly as possible by calling a Milwaukee foundation repair company can help you protect the value of your property. Here are some of the most important things you should know about the foundation crack repair process.
Not All Cracks Leak
Cracks in the early process of formation may not leak or seep. This can create a false impression that these cracks are not serious and need no professional attention. Calling on an expert in Milwaukee foundation repair can allow you to determine if your cracks require immediate repair or whether they can be addressed at a later point in their development.
The Crack-Injection Method
Most foundation repair process begin with a thorough evaluation of the condition of your interior and exterior walls and a good look at any cracks that may be forming in your foundation. If large cracks are present, your foundation expert will generally begin the repair process by drilling carefully placed injection holes that angle in directly to the area of the crack. Injection ports are then placed in these drilled holes to deliver the chemical mixture precisely where it belongs. The crack-injection method is strictly for poured wall repairs, not for block walls.
How Does the Process Work?
Once the holes have been drilled, your foundation repair team will inject a moisture-activated urethane mixture into the ports, starting from the bottom and working their way upward to the top. This chemical mixture will react with water to expand, filling in any cracks and increasing the overall stability and strength of your basement walls and foundation. When the curing process is finished, any leaks in your poured wall foundation should be eliminated.
