Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Foundation Crack Repair in Lethbridge, AB
A homeowner in Lethbridge, AB reached out to us concerned with a few leaking cracks located in the basement foundation wall. Cracks in foundation walls are common in homes throughout Alberta. They are usually a side effect of the natural curing process of concrete, however when they leak they can cause a lot of frustration. In search of the best solution to repair the foundation crack, and protect their home investment, this homeowner contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
An appointment was arranged for one of our trained System Design Specialists to visit the home and assess the situation. Once doing so the System Design Specialist was able to provide the homeowner with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specific to address all of their concerns. The foundation cracks were then repaired by one of our Production Team members, utilizing a Polyurethane Resin injection, followed by reinforcing the crack with CarbonArmor®, a series of strips that are applied across the crack significantly improving the overall stability of the wall.
We start by sealing the crack with a high-viscosity polyurethane polymer. This gets deep into the cracks to form a durable, flexible seal.
Carbon Armor Strips
CarbonArmor® reinforces and stabilizes basement walls utilizing the same technology used by the U.S. Department of Defense, Army Corps of Engineers and aerospace engineers to reinforce bomb shelters, skyscrapers and bridges. So it is very strong!
To keep your foundation walls looking great, we overlay your sealed wall crack with a polyurethane sealant. Light gray in color, it gives the repair a professional, finished appearance.
