Foundation cracks can cause a host of issues and hazards to your Michigan home. While small, hairline cracks in your foundation may not seem like cause for alarm, but they can easily grow in size and allow water to leak into your basement. In some cases, basement flooding can result, which can lead to even more structural and health concerns.
Here at StayDry® Waterproofing, we help Michigan residents and homeowners protect their homes from the hazards of excessive moisture through a variety of basement waterproofing services. Before you contact us for a free estimate on our services, let us fill you in on the dangers of foundation cracks and how our high-pressure crack injection solution can help protect your home.
The Hazards of Foundation Cracks
Even the smallest of foundation cracks can cause a number of issues to your home’s structural integrity and the health of your family. As water makes its way into foundation cracks, fluctuating temperatures can cause it to expand and contract, causing the crack to grow in size. As this happens, water is able to seep into your home and, in some cases, cause your basement to flood.
A flooded basement is a headache, but it can also result in further damage to your home’s foundation. If wooden support structures are damaged, pests like termites and carpenter ants could soon begin to feed on the rotting wood.
Worse yet, a damp basement is the perfect environment for mold growth. Not only is mold difficult to get rid of, but mold spores can make its way through your home’s ventilation system and cause respiratory illnesses like asthma.
Crack Injection Crack Repair
With all these hazards that can result from cracks in your foundation, it is imperative to have any foundation cracks sealed with our high-pressure crack injection from StayDry®. With this, we are able to seal any cracks in your foundation with ease, and since it is backed by our lifetime warranty, you never have to worry about a sealed crack leaking again.
In some cases, homeowners might require more extensive repairs. For example, if foundation cracks have grown too large and are now beginning to flake, a partial or even complete wall rebuild will be needed. Luckily, StayDry® can rebuild your foundation walls for you quickly so you aren’t disturbed too long by the construction. Regardless of your waterproofing needs, we surely have a solution for your home.
