When addressed from the inside, Foundation Cracks are repaired most effectively with Epoxy Injection. This method uses a NON-Expanding Epoxy Resin to fill the void formed by the crack. Once filled, the epoxy will bond with the concrete, sealing out any further water penetration.
The typical foundation crack repair cost per wall height are:
- 9 ft wall $550
- 8 ft wall $450
- 4 ft wall $400
- 3 ft wall $350
- 2 ft wall $300
These prices are for what we consider “clean” cracks. Cracks where a repair has not been attempted before. “Patched” cracks, where a repair was attempted previously, add $50 to the price of a clean crack. So a 9 ft Patched crack is $600, and so on.
Another factor when repairing Foundation Cracks is lateral movement. Hydrostatic Pressure can push on a wall, and the weak spots on walls are right at the crack locations. As the support there is lessened with the crack, these cracks can re-open, causing further headaches. To combat this, we are able to install Carbon Fiber Crack Locks that hold the crack together and reinforce the strength of the wall. These are extremely effective in strengthening a Foundation Wall.
The cost of using Carbon Fiber Crack Locks with a Foundation Crack is simple to calculate. Take the original price of the crack and double it. If the crack is quoted to be $450, with Carbon Fiber it is $900.
These repairs come with a Lifetime Warranty, transferable to new owners.
