Basement Ceiling Material Options - The cracks in the basement wall will not normally weaken the structure of your base, but they will cause different difficulties specifically, water problems.

If it rains outside, especially in the event that you don't have functional and clean gutters, a lot of the water builds up from the outside of your basement wall. If you don't get routine basement wall repair to keep those cracks closed, some of the water will get into your basement through those cracks. Even if your basement includes a waterproofing membrane on all of the outside walls, a significant enough crack may tear or perhaps shred the membrane and then you're in trouble all over again.

Most such cracks can be repaired from the inside in a timely and cost-effective manner that doesn't disturb the soil or what remains of the waterproof membrane on the outside.

The perfect method to perform the basement wall repair is by injecting an expanding liquid urethane foam to the crack. When the liquid foam encounters water, then it expands dramatically, forcing the foam down and up, inward and outward along the whole length and depth of the crack. It dries and becomes more waterproof in minutes, sealing the crack perfectly. Because it begins as a liquid of about the same viscosity as water, then it is going to go everywhere that the water moves. Because it ends up a foam, it is relatively easy to cut off and, if necessary, sand down any of those foam that expands inward though usually, that is not a large matter.
