concrete crack repair kit
 
I am looking to repair some cracks in our basement walls, I want to use the injection method, epoxy or urethane type, but there are so many companies selling these kits now, that I am totally confused, can anyone help me that has some experience on this subject, or has used a brand they could recommend

Thanks so much
Jerry

Cracks in foundation wall
 
Good morning Jerry Lee, with my experience in this problem, the really best way is to expose the cracks that a seeping water and repair then from the outside.

Many times there's a crack that's not taking water threw them due to the crack doesn't go all the way through the wall but if you have the outside exposed fix the all with V'ing them out approx.1 in, cleaning them( I MEAN REALLY CLEAN) and use any 2 part appoxey for concrete and a peice of fiber mesh and glass it for the double fix.

If you can't expose the outerside,they do rent the clamps to secure a bracket to the inside wall, for the injection tube attached to it and it will push the material with a super amount of pressure to insure the crack is full with out any voids.Large rental companies rent these.

United rental is one of those rentals if their in your area. I hope I helped. If you should need any more with this, please don't be hesatant to hit me up... Mike @ CCF:thumbup:

Hi
I was hoping to attempt the crack repair from the basement side, it really does not leak water, I just want to fill it before I drywall, and for peace of mind
