Foundations

We specialize in foundation repair and foundation waterproofing in Waukegan and the Chicagoland area. Concrete foundations often crack simply because of settling. We recommend an injection method on any crack that leaks or will not be accessible after finishing your basement.

We use an injection method to repair foundation cracks instead of merely patching with epoxy. There are two types of material used for injecting foundation cracks. The first is epoxy and the second is a hydroactive urethane. Other companies will try to sell you on the idea that one is better than the other, they will tell you it’s the only product they use.

The fact is they are wrong. A reputable waterproofing company needs to be familiar with both materials. Urethane is used in cracks that need to be allowed to continuously expand and contract with your homes natural movement. Injecting these cracks with epoxy will bond this crack and cause future cracks within 4 to 5 feet away during future expansion and contraction. A urethane injection will act like a control joint.

Epoxy is used to repair structural foundation cracks that need to be stopped from movement that could cause further damage to your home. Structural injections are on occasion accompanied by carbon fiber straps or steel support columns to give your basement back its maximum structural integrity.

Knowing which material to use in foundation crack repairs makes a huge difference and could save you from spending hundreds, possibly thousands, on unnecessary repairs.

For finished basements we may recommend an outside repair. If necessary, this can be accomplished by digging a small hole down to the footing and applying a rubber membrane followed by the installation of a volclay shield.
