Benefits of Polyurethane Crack Injection
It is not uncommon for cracks to form overtime or even show up on new foundations. However, it is important to address these cracks. Not only is it unsightly, but also cracks can be an entryway for water to seep through. This can then cause water damage and if not repaired in time can cause mold to form inside of your basement and lead to health issues.
While some other waterproofing companies use other materials for crack injection, polyurethane has proved to be the most successful. Other injection methods typically involve materials like epoxy. The problem with epoxy is that it will harden much stronger than concrete and will not be flexible after it cures. Also if the crack is wet or actively leaking, epoxy will not work as it needs a dry surface to adhere to. Polyurethane on the other hand reacts with water to expand 5 to 20 times its original volume and fills the crack. This allows polyurethane to be a perfect choice for actively leaking cracks.
Other type of crack repair such as repairing the cracks from the outside will still leave the crack void and will cost the homeowners much more than polyurethane crack injection from the inside due to the extensive labour requirement of the job.
It is important to note that polyurethane crack injection is ideal for concrete foundations alone and will not work on brick or stone foundation repair.
