Your foundation is a critical part of your home, and it needs to be constantly maintained and stabilized while it’s damaged.
Many people are unsure of the types of foundations they have in their home, and this is the first step in the foundation repair process.
A solid concrete wall is the most common foundation in modern day construction. If your house was made in the last 75 years then there is a good chance it is a poured foundation wall. This style of foundation is very good at providing your home structural support and generally is very good at blocking water from coming in the house. Generally, there are only two reasons you have water in your home with a poured foundation and that is either a foundation crack or a leaking rod hole. These issues can both be fixed from inside the basement , with no digging.
Typically a Block foundation is found in a home 75+ years old and is more prone to leaking vs a poured foundation. A single cinder block is stacked ontop of other cinder blocks, creating the foundation wall. When stacked together the cinder blocks creat columns that can fill with water due to hydrostatic pressure. These issues generally require major repair
A Rod hole is a hole that is left in the wall from the construction process of the home, it is a hole that was once used for rebar. Generally, the home builder covers these holes with cheap hydraulic cement but it is not enough to stop water. When the cement is removed there is a quarter size hole behind it that leads to the outside. It can let in a large amount of water quickly.
A foundation crack is the most common reason you have water in your basement if you have a poured concrete foundation. A foundation crack repair can be done by high pressure injection from inside the house, no digging from the outside is required. This method uses the newest methods and products on the market. When the crack is injected it filles the void with a expanding product called polyurethane. This fills the crack from floor to ceiling , inside the house to the dirt on the outside. This product also cures very quickly which ensures the product stays in the wall and does not leak out the back side. Aquaphobia is the leader in foundation crack repair, please read our blog for more info.
Although cracks in your garage or on your basement floor might not be as serious as other issues, we suggest fixing them to prevent further issues and stopping moisture and bugs from getting into the house.
All foundation crack repairs come with a 2 return leak policy, with no end date. A lifetime warranty is provided for foundation crack repairs if it was injected with polyurethane and treated with a carbon fiber system. No warranty is provided for previously repaired foundation cracks by home owner or contractor (we can try to fix it but don’t guarantee it)
