The Need for Crack Repair in Homes in MA and NH Is Common
There are two types of cracks that can occur in your home’s foundation; foundation wall cracks and basement floor cracks.
Foundation Wall Cracks
Foundation wall cracks are the most common source of seepage in residential basements across MA and NH. Some of the common causes of these cracks are structure settling, concrete shrinkage or poor site conditions related to soil type and compaction, drainage or concrete strength. Most wall cracks are minor in nature and typically pose no structural risk. Some horizontal cracks may indicate a more serious issue and may require a designed crack repair from a structural Engineer. Identifying the cause and understanding the cracking pattern is the key to a successful repair.
Our crack repair specialists are trained in many repair procedures including, Epoxy and Urethane Pressure Injection, CrackShield™ Dual Process and have worked with many Engineers in designing site specific repair criteria.
Basement Floor Cracks
Concrete floor cracks exist in almost everyone’s basement. Since most basement floors are not a structural element of a home’s foundation, most floor cracks are superficial in nature. They can still be unsightly and under certain conditions, allow for the entry of water and harmful soil gases (radon) into your home.
We offer many solutions related to floor crack repair. From minor aesthetic concerns requiring patching and sealing to major issues like hydro-static pressure and complete slab removal and replacement, Rescon has the experience.
