CrackShield™ is a unique blend of two distinct processes, urethane injection and carbon fiber.
CrackShield™ seals a crack from water seepage and strengthens foundation reducing a repair failure. CrackShield is the only crack repair system that offers total protection.
Foundation wall cracks result from soil expansion, settling, shifting, or movement under the foundation footing. Wall cracks can occur horizontally, vertically, and diagonally in the wall. Each type of crack is an indicator of a different type of stress. Cracks can allow insects, soil gases and water to easily enter the basement or crawlspace.
CrackShield™- Dual Process Foundation Crack Repair System:
- Stop water seepage
- Strengthen foundation
- Add stability
- Minimize soil gas entry
- Reliability (15 year warranty)
- Peace of mind
When repairing foundation cracks it is important to realize you are not just stopping an annoying puddle on the basement floor, but you are taking a step to improve your home ecosystem (the relationship between a community of living organisms in a particular area and its nonliving environment).
Cracks that leak water allow moisture into our homes which leads to mold growth. Mold poses health risks like respiratory complications and asthma symptoms.
Even if the crack is not visibly leaking water, it can still be leaking dangerous soil gases like Radon or methane directly into your home. According to the EPA, Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer in non smokers and a serious health risk to a home’s ecosystem. Cracks left unattended have the potential to grow longer and wider, creating a possible structural problem in the foundation.
By using our Emecole Foundation Crack Repair System you not only stop a leaky crack, but also benefit the health of your home and the occupants.
