Drilling occurs adjacent to the crack, spacing the holes every 6 inches, from the top down to the bottom.
The holes are drilled at a 45-degree angle in the direction of the crack, making certain that the drill bit meets it accurately.
We fit injection ports into these drilled holes and thread Zirc fittings onto the ends.
A compressor then flushes a mild acid and water solution through the crack, removing debris and prepping the crack for resin adhesion.
We subsequently rinse the crack with water, clearing away the acid and making sure the crack is pristine and damp.
A layer of hydraulic cement is applied over the crack’s surface to hold the resin in place as it expands.
Lastly, resin is injected from the bottom upwards into the crack. This resin interacts with the water, causing expansion up to twenty-fold. Notably, this resin retains flexibility, allowing it to shift with the foundation’s movements.
Jim at Crackmasters provided a thorough assessment and recommendations. He clearly explained our options and steps to fix and mitigate leaks. Trustworthy, honest and did not oversell. I highly recommend Jim and his team.
Jim was amazing to work with! We had a flood and within a day he was there to assess our situation, and explain our options. His knowledge and experience was a comfort during this stressful time. His crew went above and beyond our expectations. We have already recommended Crackmasters to our friends.
Quality work from a great team! Jim did an excellent job repairing cracks in our basement for less $ than we expected. The staff is very professional and I would absolutely recommend Crackmasters for anyone in need of waterproofing services. You can trust them with your cracks! :)
Awesome experience from start to finish. Tina was very responsive and professional. She called to confirm and qualify my issues and explain how the process works. After that Jose was dispatched a couple days later, showed up on time, took off his shoes to and from the basement, left the area clean and crack filled. Highly recommend and I’d use them again.
