Repairs and Drainage

Crawlspaces.com offers foundation repairs including injection of foundation cracks honeycombed walls using urethane and epoxy. These methods of foundation crack repair will completely seal crack, stopping water seepage and insect infiltration. Sometimes, a crack needs to be repaired from the outside, and Crawlspaces.com can dig to the footings and patch the crack. The signs you may have a foundation cracks, or other foundation issues is by experiencing water in only one or two locations.

Other wall seepage problems can be through honeycombing (dry gravel mix) of the concrete, corroded wall ties (steel ties for the original concrete forms), and cuts or drilling through the foundation for plumbing or electrical. The repairs for these problems might be a combination of hydraulic cement, injection, and epoxy patching.

Draintile and Sump Pump Installation

Hydrostatic pressure below your home will push water up from below the footings of your home and into your crawl space or basement. Hydrostatic pressure is essentially ground water moving around exterior walls and seeking equilibrium by pushing water onto the basement floor. To confirm you are experiencing this condition, you will notice water seepage in various locations, mostly through floor cracks or at the edges of floors.

A basement draintile installation requires the edge of the concrete floor to be removed and trenched. Perforated draintile is laid into the trench and surrounded by stone, thereby creating a continuous capillary break that leads water to a sump liner or sump pit. Draintile systems in Illinois most often require a sump pump due to the flatness of the land and depth of basements.

Homes built on slopes, such as in Atlanta, can sometimes have drain tile systems “brought to daylight”, using gravity instead of relying on a sump pump. Battery back up sump pumps are also available to those who experience long power outages or just desire an insurance against pump failure.
