If you notice a pipe penetrating through a concrete wall, proper treatment can help you avoid foundation complications. It’s important to have a professional take a look at the area in question before the problem escalates any further.
Although it can be tempting to repair the pipe leaking in your basement with caulk or cement, it’s only a quick and temporary fix. That’s why, we’ve created a unique type of epoxy injection with a special addition–polyurethane.
Sewers, water lines, electrical lines, gas lines, oh my! There are many different types of pipes that can penetrate through the foundation wall, as we have read above. The repairs are fairly quick and inexpensive, and can be done in two ways:
The most common repair for these issues is from the interior via Polyurethane Injection. One of the few times we use Polyurethane, its properties help to fill the entire void around the pipe. Additionally, it allows for small movement in the pipe so the seal does not break. Costs for repairing Pipe Penetrations from the Interior are more economical than from the exterior.
Less commonly, we can repair these from the exterior as well. Similar to the exterior crack repair, we can dig out the exterior and seal. This is done by removing an old patch and adding hydraulic to fill any voids on the outside. Once completed, we install a Elastomeric Waterproofing Tar to seal the area. A 14 mil vapor barrier is applied over that to protect the seal during back fill. The dirt is then back filled and tampered down. Costs for Exterior Pipe Sealing are determined by depth.
