Tile Over Wet Basement Concrete Floor - It's an everyday event even though builders and contractors that create cellars and basements normally reinforce the concrete on your basement walls with steel, the concrete still cracks, and before you know it, you want a basement foundation repair job done quick. The cracks in the basement wall will not normally weaken the structure of your foundation, but they may cause different difficulties specifically, water issues.
If it rains outside, especially if you don't have clean and functional gutters, a lot of that water builds up against the outside of your basement wall. Unless you get routine basement wall repair to keep these cracks closed, some of that water will enter your basement through these cracks. Even if your basement includes a waterproofing membrane on all of the outside walls, a Substantial enough crack may tear or even shred the membrane and then you're in trouble all over again.
Most such cracks can be fixed from the inside in a cost-effective and timely manner that doesn't disturb the soil or that which remains of the watertight membrane on the outside.
The perfect way to execute the basement wall repair is by injecting an expanding liquid urethane foam into the crack. When the liquid foam encounters water, it expands dramatically, forcing the foam up and down, inward and outward across the entire length and thickness of the crack. It dries and becomes more watertight in minutes, sealing the crack absolutely. Since it begins as a liquid of about precisely the same viscosity as water, it is going to go anywhere that the water goes. Since it ends up a foam, it's relatively easy to cut off and, if needed, sand down some of the foam which expands inward however usually, that is not a large matter.
