Foundation Crack Repair
Floor and wall cracks can develop in various sizes, short and long, and in a few different patterns. They can be vertical, horizontal, or even in a stair-step pattern. Regardless of what these cracks look like, they need to be filled with a special epoxy material by our professionals. The process begins with us wiping off the surface of the crack so that dirt and debris doesn't get inside, and then we will fill it from the dirt to the surface with epoxy. This technique is very useful and effective. It will permanently seal the crack and prevent water from seeping inside. It can be painted over.
