Introducing New Waterproofing that Creates Basement Fixtures Easy-to-use in Minutes

Unfortunately, the curing process causes the concrete to shrink slightly, often resulting in hairline cracks

A simple, permanent repair for a leaking crack in a basement wall. Concrete consists primarily of cement, sand, gravel, and water. As the water in the slurry evaporates, the remaining ingredients cure into a hard, monolithic slab. Unfortunately, the curing process causes the concrete to shrink slightly, often resulting in hairline cracks.

Several masonry patching products, such as hydraulic cement, do an adequate job of filling cracks in concrete walls. However, these products can fail after a few years if your foundation or retaining wall continues to move slightly, leaving you with little choice but to chip them out and start all over again.

  • Temporary fixes

These methods are generally not recommended as a permanent solution as they wear out over time. They are good options when you need a quick temporary fix before repairing your basement wall cracks.

  • Caulk crack repair

This simple method takes caulk and plugs it into the crack to fill the space. It is a good way to temporarily fill in cracks that are smaller to prevent water from entering the basement.

  • Hydraulic cement crack fillings

With this method, contractors chisel an inverted-V groove into the basement wall cracks. It is then filled with rigid, hydraulic cement to plug the hole. The bond with the cement is not always strong, so this is should only be used as a temporary method.

  • Epoxy crack injections

The epoxy seals are a much stronger and rigid method of repairing basement wall cracks. This method must be applied on a dry surface. Since it is rigid, if the concrete in the basement walls expands or contracts over time, the plug can fall out.

"

When I first heard about DRIA Home Builders, I thought it sounded super-convenient. Renovation costs in minutes? I loved the idea, but I worried about whether the workmanship would be any good. I didn't want to invest time and money on a service that created additional costs that weren't any better than the tasks I could DIY"
