Although most cracks in concrete foundations and walls are not structural concerns, there are times when a structural repair is warranted.
Signs of possible structural issues include:
When properly injected, epoxy can provide a waterproof seal bonding the concrete back together with a strength exceeding that of the existing concrete. This repair applies when a significant settlement or major foundation movement is not anticipated.
Benefits of epoxy injection include:
When additional significant future movement is suspected, carbon fiber staples or foundation piering may be required. When used in conjunction with epoxy injection, this will provide necessary stabilization and additional reinforcement.
