Monitor the Cracks
Here is a list of warning signs that signal foundation problems:
Sloped or uneven floors
Cracks in interior or exterior brickwork
Cracked corner moldings and gaps spread out in the ceiling moldings
Wall rotation that causes cracked paint panels or large cracks on the side of the building
Cracks in interior walls
Cracks in tile, flooring and foundations
Doors and windows that do not open or close properly
Gaps between window frames
A gap between the wall and the ceiling
These problems, if not addressed quickly, can lead to major damage to the structure of your property. Our certified professionals use polyurethane injections to seal the cracks for a long-lasting repair. We can also carry out your foundation's waterproofing work.
The Advantages of Polyurethane Injections
Flexible - polyurethane allows concrete to move naturally with respect to thermal expansion and contraction.
Waterproof - it is an excellent material for repairing wet or leaking cracks.
Supple - it expands more than 20 times its original volume.
