Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Flexispan Solution Applied to Foundation Cracks in SE Calgary, AB
This homeowner in SE Calgary, Alberta contacted us concerned with two foundation cracks located in the basement foundation. Cracks in foundation walls are common in homes throughout Alberta. Usually a side effect of the natural curing process of concrete, these cracks usually do not threaten the foundation but can often leak causing water to enter the basement, which is what happened to this home. In order to get the best solution, they contacted Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
An appointment was arranged for a System Design Specialist to go to the home and assess the situation and provide the homeowners with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specific to address all of this homeowners concerns. The foundation crack was repaired utilizing our warrantied FlexiSpan® System stays bonded with wall movement, and seals the crack permanently. Unlike hydraulic cements and some epoxies, the special polyurethane polymer sealant used for FlexiSpan® will never dry out or re-crack due to the natural movement of the foundation wall over long periods of time.
