Interior crack injections

Posted Mar 31, 2021 in Foundation Crack Repair, Waterproofing

Show­ing inte­ri­or cracks that have nev­er been repaired would be too easy. Let’s dive into the more chal­leng­ing crack repairs, the pre­vi­ous homeowner’s DIY repair.

We chose this par­tic­u­lar crack repair because this was attempt­ed at least two dif­fer­ent times. The first time the crack was repaired with an old school tech­nique that required chis­el­ing the crack out and fill­ing it with a prod­uct sim­i­lar to hydraulic cement. The sec­ond attempt was a new­er tech­nique with a flex­i­ble fix in a can. In the end, both repairs were unsuccessful.

1.) Scrape off the spray can materials on the wall to access the first repair.

2.) Chisel/drill out the old repair in the foundation wall. This step requires us to find the original crack within the foundation wall.

3.) Embed injection ports into the voids in the wall. Fill in chipped out voids with a quick set hardener and cover the crack with the epoxy patch. Additional epoxy will be needed around the ports and filled in the voids.

4.) Inject crack from bottom to top, from inside and outside of the foundation.
