Seals, Strengthens, & Stabilizes
Foundation cracks are typically caused by drying shrinkage, or thermal movement, and can cause minor problems. Minor cracks over time can grow larger and cause a loss of structural integrity or, more commonly, water leakage.
Reduce Mold & Radon
Most basements eventually leak. Even if a crack is not leaking now, eventually water will find it. Any environment that has water (moisture) will contribute to the growth of mold. Mold will continue to grow if a moisture problem is undiscovered or unaddressed. Mold can cause or worsen 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.
