Injection Repair Scenarios
aAlready know the basics of injection repair, yet still deciding if the repair type is right for you? See a few examples of what we tackle on a regular basis.
Leaking Basement Foundation Cracks
Injection can quickly stop leaks without having to perform any digging or waiting until dry weather. With epoxy injection, concrete foundations are structurally repaired as well!
Dealing with gushing water is not usually planned for. It can happen at any time because of concrete defects; honeycombing, failed water-stop, form tie holes, control joints and more. Uncured materials are washed away or diluted preventing proper repair. Our technicians have experience dealing with active water leaks and can repair, fill, or patch an active water leak. Using proven injection methods, we can provide a multifaceted repair approach.
Failed Leak Repair
We are not kidding when we say we have seen it all. Single component bitumen products inside occupied homes, playdough shoved into basement cracks. Single component caulking in pipe penetrations full of water. Anchoring adhesive filled into intersect drill holes with no hope of it entering a crack. Urethane injection failures. Crystalline waterproofing trapping water, causing flaking and accelerating corrosion. With our proven repair methods, we can address failed leak repairs with confidence.
Wet spots on drop ceiling tiles? Efflorescence flaking from painted ceiling? Raindrops indoors are never a good sign. Leaks usually happen in the wet season, which can be frustrating as membranes and roofing materials need dry surfaces to bond to. Injection repair is done from the interior in any weather. Epoxy injection is a permanent localized repair, however to fully prevention future leaks a roofing membrane should be planned for.
Our technicians can work outside of regular business hours to repair leaks with minimal disruption.
Ponding water on a floor surface, water not quite getting into the drain, significant wall leaks with little to no repair budget? Have us come to site to access if there are low budget options available. These can be as simple as diverting water into areas that will cause less disruption to building users. Or as complex as reducing hydrostatic water pressure using ports and perimeter plumbing.
