Foundation cracks commonly occur in structures in the Kansas City area.
They can range from simple cosmetic cracks to those that can have serious, adverse effects on your foundation.
This homeowner, who is a professional home flipper, contacted Thrasher Foundation Repair because he had water coming into his basement through significant cracks across most of the back wall. Even though an attempted foundation repair by another company was unsuccessful, Thrasher Foundation Repair was able to seal the cracks and complete the job to the customer’s satisfaction.
Epoxy or urethane injection is a simple but effective solution for cracks that are leaking or need to be structurally repaired.
After verifying that the foundation was still well within structural code limits, we recommended that the crack be repaired utilizing urethane injection and epoxy seal. Urethane is pushed through the wall under pressure and is activated by water. Thus, it will seek out the water in the crack, and will also go through the wall to the outside of the home to seal the crack all the way through.
