Leaking Crack Repair

Leaking cracks in basement walls can be dangerous even if it's as thin as a hairline. That is because water pouring through the leak can make the basement floor wet which then can lead to many moistures, water, and mold-related problems. A major crack can even lead to basement floor flooding. So it is very important to get a leaking crack repaired professionally before it's too late.

Causes of Leaking Crack

Drainage
Water can actually cause cracks in the foundation as well due to poor drainage in the soil. If water is not directed away from your foundation and accumulates against the foundation walls, and that pressure (hydrostatic pressure) can force the water into the walls, creating cracks.

Water Leak
A water leak can come from numerous places: a shower, a sink, a toilet, a washing machine, a dishwasher, a bad pipe, just to name a few. These interior water leaks can dampen the basement wall causing it to leak.

Stress Points
Stress points are one of the reasons cracks are created in your walls. They can occur when you’re installing lines for the electric, gas, or sewer.

Saturation of Soil
Once the soil under basement footings becomes saturated too much, the footings will then begin to ‘settle’ which in turn can create cracks in the walls.
