This is a cracked and leaking foundation wall. The home was built in the 1930’s and was allowing large amounts of water to leak into the structure causing flooding. Flood repairs can be a nuisance and are often expensive to have cleaned up.
The repair was made by curtaining the exterior wall with material using access from inside the home. No Excavation was used! You can see the material had traveled from the exterior and pushed its way through the crack to create a permanent waterproof seal. If movement is to occur in the crack the seal will not rip or tear but rather flex with the movement. Static pressure is not an issue at this point because any water pressure pushing against the wall will essentially be pushing against the “curtain” of sealant covering the exterior of the wall.
At the lower right of this picture a 16” core was pulled from this concrete wall. There are many holes in the wall where the core drill was mounted to the wall that were allowing water to seep into the building. The pipe that can be seen in the picture is a water main that supplies the building its water. To say the least, there are many problems in this small area allowing quite a bit of moisture in.
The area was sealed up from inside the structure. Access to the area from the outside was not favorable so we drilled holes through the wall and curtained the exterior of the wall with material. The material found its way into the cracks and was visibly pushing through. A secondary seal was applied in this particular instance forming a rubber like liner onto the surface.
This is a joint from a home foundation to a later poured garage foundation. Settlement occurred causing the garage foundation to pull away from the home in excess of 1 inch at the top. Water and dirt was flooding through the joint causing the homeowner flooding issues into the finished basement.
90% of the work was done on the outside of the home. Material soaked rope was stuffed into the crack from the inside to act as a barrier for material to push against without causing a mess in the home. After that step, injection was completed from the outside without the use of digging. As you can see in the exterior pictures we were able to complete a successful job with no signs of damage to the landscape surrounding the home.
