Foundation Crack Repair


Water Seepage

Water seepage can be a sign of the need for basement waterproofing or foundation repair. Basement wall cracks are the most common source of seepage in poured concrete foundations. The cracks are mostly caused by stress, settling or shrinkage during the concretes’ curing process.

Most basement wall cracks are hairline usually less than 1/8” wide and run vertically or diagonally from the top of the foundation wall down to the bottom. They tend to go all the way through the wall and this is why they leak.

In general, the structural integrity of the foundation is fine with most cracks. However the ones that tend to be wider than 1/8”, or run horizontally or stair step on the foundation wall could potentially be problematic.


Repairing cracks is an essential step before finishing off your basement!

However, if your basement is finished, we would be glad to give you a free estimate for removing the walls or any other obstructions, prior to making the crack repair and reconstructing the wall the way it was prior to the repairs. We have highly skilled and experienced carpenters on staff.


We have a solution to permanently repair cracks in your poured concrete basement walls.

The Flood Pro's Crack Repair System contains a very thin urethane which travels all the way through the wall. Once in the wall and beyond, it expands and plugs. The resulting foam barrier permanently stops the flow of water. The benefits of the expanding foam include:

  • Filling of the wall completely, not just on the surface.
  • Very fine cracks are plugged.
  • Any voids behind the wall are also filled, adding additional protection.
  • Flood Pro's foam is flexible, adapting to natural movement of your wall.
  • Flood Pro's foam will not shrink over time thus providing permanent protection.

Flood Pro's Crack Repair System works! Proper basement repair requires filling of the crack completely. Call us now to get it done the right way.

Repairs done only on the surface will crack again.
