    Hi - 15 years ago we added an extension to the old cinder block foundation which is now 60 years old. The new extension is also cinder block. Where the old and new meet, we have a leak. I put hydraulic cement in the inside seam (first picture) but that did not stop the leak. Ideally I'd just...

    Hi all, I have a few tie rod holes in my garage poured foundation wall that I need to fix. Whatever was put on when the house was built has fallen off. I have a smooth tunnel/hole which is 6-8 inches deep and 3/4 inch wide. Would you use hydraulic cement or polyurethane (Sika PU) foam to...
