The Wrong Way To Repair Concrete Cracks

Concrete Caulk Does Not Last Forever – The typical homeowner will attempt a stopgap by filling concrete cracks with silicone caulk, but this is a superficial repair. Water will fill the inside void of the crack can cause efflorescence, which will eventually loosen the caulk. It is not uncommon that years later, the caulk will lose its bond and begin peeling.

Do Not Use Hydraulic Cement – Disappointed, the homeowner will remove the caulk, chisel out the crack, and fill it with hydraulic cement. However, hydraulic cement has a weak bond with concrete, which is the reason the crack needs an inverted V-groove to hold it in. Additionally, hydraulic cement is very rigid. As concrete continuously moves, shrinks, and expands, the rigid “rod” will loosen. Efflorescence (“white powder”) will begin to purge, soon followed by drops of water or signs of moisture. After a couple of years, water will begin to leak around it.

An alternative foundation repair method is to excavate and patch the crack on the exterior. This may not be permanent because all surface repairs will eventually get loose or crack.

DIY Foundation Wall Crack Repair Kits | 8-10′ 

Product Information Page

The Ideal Repair Kit for Homeowners – RadonSeal DIY Foundation Crack Repair Kits are designed for waterproofing common settling cracks in poured concrete walls. Polyurethane foam injection is not recommended for use on concrete block walls (CMU) because of its hollow cores. Successfully repairing basement wall cracks can easily be achieved from the inside/out. This avoids the need to excavate the outside of the foundation, saving homeowners serious money. Our repair kits use a low-viscosity, two-component urethane that is suitable for filling hairline cracks, as well as wide cracks (up to ½”). Low-pressure concrete crack injection works by filling the entire length and depth of the crack with expandable, hydrophobic polyurethane foam (reacts with moisture; expands up to 35x its volume). Once the repair is complete, the crack is filled with a flexible urethane foam that will block groundwater leaks, radon gas, and insects.

  • PRO TIP > If structural strength is required, use the injectable Epoxy version of these kits. Epoxy does not expand and if there is a void, will run out of the back of the crack.

Common Use: hairline cracks, poured concrete walls, leaking foundation cracks, mortar cracks in stone foundations, radon prevention

RadonSeal DIY Foundation Crack Repair Kit | Urethane | 8-10'

PRO Concrete Crack Repair Kits | Urethane/Epoxy | 30-60′

The Complete Kit for Waterproofing Contractors – Like our DIY Kits, the professional toolkits use expandable polyurethane foam and/or a rigid injectable epoxy. Our PRO Crack Repair Kits include a dual-caulking gun, making injection easier and the epoxy surface seal cures much faster in comparison to the surface seal for our DIY Kits (less waiting). The expandable urethane foam adheres tenaciously to dry and wet surfaces, it is suitable for both dry and wet cracks. Its low viscosity (100 cps) and forceful expansion on contact with water make it suitable for both hairline or wide cracks. Replacement kits, materials, and accessories are available, as well as special surface sealers and injection polymers needed by contractors.

Common Use: basements, multiple cracks, dams, commercial buildings, industrial structures, poured concrete, foundation cracks
