Basement Waterproofing
Mar 21, 2018

How can you save money on basement waterproofing? With our polyurethane basement leak repair solution, we can stop leaks by filling underground voids. This is all done without any digging or excavating. Injection resins are long-lasting solutions can plug hole sand leaks in concrete basements, swimming pools, and many other areas which may require waterproofing.

Our company offers two major types of leak repair resins as a cost effective alternative to traditional basement waterproofing: hydrophilic and hydrophobic.

Hydrophilic Leak Repair Resin

Hydrophilic grouts readily mix with water. It seek outs water to get an excellent "bite" into the pores of wet concrete. This is important when trying to seal a crack in wet concrete. Hydrophilic grouts are used to stop leaks through cracks and joints in underground structures. When cracks or joints open and close with temperature changes, a tight water seal and bond is maintained. The flexibility of the hydrophilic grout provides this tight waterproof seal.

Hydrophobic Leak Repair Resin

Hydrophobic grouts are typically used to fill voids and stabilize soils. These grouts are excellent choices due to their low viscosity, high expansion rate, and ability to set up under wet conditions without diluting. Hydrophobic resins repels water. When injected into loose soil or voids, the groat expands and replaces any water present. Since rigid hydrophobic material is not affected by change in the moisture content of soil, it is practically unaffected by thewater table. The groat retains its strength, size, and is impermeability under most soil conditions.
