How Do Cracks in Floors and Walls Happen?
The most significant cause of your basement floors and walls cracking is water. When soil is too saturated, it puts tons of pressure on them. This pressure is commonly caused by the expansion of the soil outside of your foundation’s wall. Eventually, this leads to cracks and water damage.
Fixing Basement Cracks
- Floor Cracks: When water seepage starts, repairs need to be made by installing a perimeter drainage system. A drainage system will stop the water before it gets in by capturing it and rerouting it to an outdoor sump pump.
- Foundation Wall Cracks: No matter how small the crack is, water will always get in. A drainage pump is also helpful for foundation cracks to reroute water. Then, our Oklahoma City foundation experts will use EPOXY or Carbon fiber products to create a waterproof seal where there is leakage.
- Windows: Damaged or old window frames are a major culprit for water leakage, too. To install a drainage system for your windows, our team will make small holes under them to attach a plastic fitting. Then, the fitting can channel water to the drain. Once installed, we'll make sure your windows are sealed by injecting the holes with polymer.
