April Showers Bring Basement Flooding
As we enter April, rain threatens to flood thousands of basements across St. Louis with cracks in their walls. It's a huge safety hazard and a massive expense to clean up from a flooded basement. You can lose treasured memories and expensive appliances, along with all of the water damage to walls, carpets and floors.
Basement flooding is a huge problem that rquires weeks or months to fix, and can result in further issues like mold behind your walls and expanded access for bugs, rats, and snakes to find their way into your home. Shoring up the walls of your basement should be a priority for any homeowner concerned about keeping the value of their home and the health of their family and pets.
But fear not, St. Louis homeowners - there's a way to fix cracks in your basement walls before they become a real nuisance. Epoxy injections give your home a chance to keep out water and make your basement safe for your family without expensive concrete work.
Epoxy Injections are the process of repairing cracks in basement foundation walls. This entails properly cleaning wall cracks with wire brushes, then removing any loose debris from inside the wall crack with compressed air to ensure proper cohesion of epoxy.
Next, we place multiple wall ports over the wall cracks with injection ports, and then spread hardening resin over wall cracks, and inject the ports with low viscosity epoxy until the wall cracks are filled to restore the foundation's wall strength.
We will also tear out any needed drywall and repair the drywall professionally for an additional charge. Epoxy Injections do come with a 7-year transferrable warranty!
