Epoxy Injection Explained
Foundation crack repair is NOT done correctly 9.9 times out of 10. Literally, for over 25 years I have been doing Epoxy Injection. I have tried years ago by spreading the ports 12″ to 8″ between ports and the thinnest of Epoxy will not travel from port “A” to port B” successfully filling the crack inside the wall. I look at foundation walls more than I would like of people plain and simple are getting ripped off. I see epoxy jobs that were done by other companies that think by putting 3 ports in a 7ft wall crack will do the job. When I am asked to look at a foundation wall, it may be a straightforward crack repair job. I explain to people the proper way to inject a hairline crack. Epoxy Injection is a 3 step process, no matter how you look at it. Day 1 the cracks are drilled 1/2″ deep into the center of the crack. Ports are spaced no more than 6″ apart. After the holes are drilled the ports are blown out with pressurized air.
DAY 1 Epoxy Injection
DAY 2 – INJECTED EPOXY into the wall cracks. The ports are capped to prevent leakage of Epoxy.
DAY 3 – The ports are cut off and Epoxy 300 a quick setting Epoxy is placed and smoothed over the drilled portholes.
