Foundation question


My exterminator came by today because I was getting ants inside my home. They treated but recommended I close up holes they witnessed in my foundation. The house sits on a concrete slab. What would be the best product to use for this? I have a can of that expanding form stuff. Would this work?

Where exactly are the holes? Are you talking cracks in concrete floor? Cracks in concrete wall? Space where house meets foundation? Got Pics?

Foundation question


Do NOT use the expanding foam. I just treated a nightmare scenario with just this (they used expanding foam to plug a thru wall fitting, it leaked and turned an entire end of that room moldy...that room was a 4 year old little girl's bedroom and it made her sick). What I would use is Kryton Krystol products. Kryton will not only seal the cracks and holes, it will also waterproof them and strengthen the concrete. Kryton is the only thing I will use on a below grade foundation wall...period. Check the Kryton website for the proper products.
