It’s important to keep in mind that crack injections are temporary fixes to your foundation damage. Crack injections are more of a “bandaid” solution to a cracked foundation. Over the years, concrete will shrink, swell and settle naturally due to changes in weather and soil. A crack is the sign of foundation movement and it is always
recommended that a permanent foundation repair method be installed prior to crack injections to prevent a re-occurrence of leaking and continued movement of the foundation and structure.
If you’re seeing cracks in your foundation, this is a sign of damage to your home either from pressure pushing horizontally on the wall from the exterior, or lack of stable soil under your foundation causing your home to settle. Crack injections will continue to fail without the installation of one of our guaranteed foundation repair solutions. As the seasons, soil density, & soil saturations change, the walls will move in and out which causes crack injections to fail.
