Foundation Crack Repair
Since 1994, CrackMaster Concrete has been a leader in successfully offering concrete foundation crack repair from the inside. At LETY Construction Ltd. we are proud to be the exclusive CrackMaster Concrete licensee in the Edmonton and Sherwood Park area. Our success is based on extensive training of our technicians and our proprietary Pro-Series Flexible Resin (not polyurethane). This product gives us the ability to inject cracks from the inside, penetrate the full depth of the crack and, using the earth on the outside of the foundation as a backer, form a permanent barrier on the outside of the wall.
Our concrete crack repairs have been field-proven, time-tested and are backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty. We are truly the Masters in Dry Basements!
Typically a vertical crack in a foundation is non-structural in nature and our Pro-Series Flexible Resin injection is the best repair. Most often, a vertical crack is the result of stress on the foundation either from concrete shrinkage and/or foundation movement. Even after repair, the foundation will continue to move, using the crack for stress relief. The benefit of Pro-Series Flexible Resin is that it has the ability to stay flexible, moving with the crack, while maintaining a seal. This ensures the crack will remain leak-proof. Pro-Series Flexible Resin is injected from the inside, providing a superior repair without the cost or mess associated with digging from the outside. Our injections can be performed on actively leaking cracks or as a preventative measure prior to finishing a basement.
A horizontal crack is more significant as it can be structural in nature and require a structural repair. In the past, horizontal cracks were simply injected with epoxy to help return structural stability to the wall. Time has shown however that epoxy injections are not enough to withstand the pressure of our clay-based soils in this region. At LETY Construction we offer a range of engineered solutions that return the strength and stability to your foundation. These include PWF wall installations and vertical steel beam installation.
Each crack and foundation repair is unique. While we can provide general information on our website, there is no replacement for a professional, qualified consultation. LETY Construction provides free, detailed, written estimates in Edmonton and surrounding area including St. Albert, Sherwood Park, Stony Plain, Spruce Grove, Fort Saskatchewan, Morinville, Beaumont and Leduc. Give us a call, we’d love to fix your basement!
