Cracks in your home’s foundation are typically caused by drying shrinkage, or thermal movement, and can cause minor problems that can expand if not corrected. Minor cracks over time can grow larger and cause a loss of structural integrity or, more commonly, water leakage into the home.
Seals, Strengthens, & Stabilizes
Foundation crack repair seals, strengthens, and stabilizes your home to keep it dry and safe for your family. If left unchecked, cracks in your foundation can cause problems like mold and radon, which can negatively affect the health of you and your family.
Reduce Mold & Radon
Most basements eventually leak sometime in their lifetimes. Even if a crack is not leaking now, eventually water will find it and any environment that has water (moisture) will contribute to the growth of mold via that leak. The mold will continue to grow if a moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed, worsening conditions such as asthma, hay fever, and or other allergies. The best and most cost effective strategy to managing the growth of mold and mildew is to prevent the intrusion of water and moisture into the basement. Any home may have a radon problem.
Minimize the entry of cancer causing radon gas and moisture, that effects mold growth, into your home by sealing cracks in the foundation and along the basement walls.
