How We Repair Leaky Basement Walls
Our team at Proactive Structure solutions uses a low-pressure injection process to completely fill the cracks in your basement walls. This process involves injecting the crack site slowly with a patented expanding foam that seals the crack from both the interior of your basement and on the exterior walls. The polyurethane material that Proactive Seepage Solutions use is locally manufactured and purchased from the manufacturer that invented the concept. The materials are specifically designed by a chemist to stay liquid for approx. 5 minutes before expanding. This gives the material time to flow into the crack prior to expansion. Once expansion begins, the crack is filled front to back and top to bottom. It expands outside of the foundation as well and forms a “band-aid” on the outside of the crack further preventing water seepage. It is not unusual to see foaming materials coming out of microscopic cracks 2′ away from the repair area. The low-pressure injection process takes a bit longer than other methods but its the only method for complete and guaranteeable results.
Why Choose Us For Leaky Wall Crack Repair
The answer here is actually really simple. Most other waterproofing contractors in the area will charge you large amounts of money to install a basement waterproofing system that you really don't need. These systems often involve excavating around the interior wall in your basement which is both a time consuming and expensive process. With our innovative low-pressure injection process, our experts at Proactive Structure solutions can seal any leaky crack in your basement wall or floor in less than a day. In addition to this, we don't have to do any excavating and your basement will be left clean and untouched, you won't even know we were there.
