Epoxy injection crack repair (also known as epoxy crack injection) is an extremely effective and reliable concrete crack repair method, used mostly for the repair of poured concrete foundation cracks such as basement foundation walls and crawlspace foundation walls, for the structural repair of same, to fix basement leaks, and to prevent poured concrete foundation cracks from leaking in the future. When used under the right conditions and when done properly by a trained injection professional, an epoxy injected concrete crack repair does not fail.
Most structural engineers commonly recommend epoxy injection for basement and crawlspace foundation walls for the structural repair of cracked concrete in applications such as highway overpasses and overhead concrete structures; this is due to epoxy’s significant bond strength. While epoxy injections for crack repair are not as versatile as polyurethane crack injections, for example, the repair of actively leaking cracks contributing to a wet basement or crawlspace, the use of epoxy is a very effective means of repairing concrete cracks and preventing potential basement leaks. By using the epoxy injection crack repair method you accomplish several things at the same time: you are waterproofing your basement, you are sealing the cracks, you are making the cracks now the strongest part of the basement or crawlspace foundation wall, you are structurally repairing a foundation crack, and you are preventing the possibility of a future basement leak from the repaired crack and much more.
