Fixing Water Leaks
Using products from two of the world leaders we are able to repair water leaks in concrete structures.
We most commonly repair cracks in basement, crawl space or foundation walls and underground parking
areas (parkades) where water is leaking through cracks in the walls, floors, ceilings or pipe openings.
For situations where there is some movement in the structure urethane injection is used. This method forces
the chemical through the cracks by use of a pump. The urethane reacts with the water in the cracks to produce
a dense, flexible closed cell foam stopping off the water.
If the structure is stable we can carry out repairs using crystalline technology, whereby water in a crack reacts
with the product causing crystals to grow and fill the pores within the concrete. The crystals in the product will
continue to grow or be reactivated in the presence of water.
These repair methods have the benefit of being able to be carried out from the inside of the structure meaning
expensive excavation or replacement of patios etc. are not required. The repairs can also be carried out in the
presence of water so waiting for dry conditions are not necessary.
