Edmonton Foundation Repair FAQ
The most common cause for a crack to appear in your foundation is the natural settlement of the foundation over time. Other causes include, but are not limited to:
- Malfunctioning weeping tile
- Freeze/thaw seasons
- Poor drainage in the yard
- Pour line in the concrete
- Unusual ground pressure pressing against the foundation wall
Most cracks that appear are vertical and are easier to repair than horizontal cracks. Horizontal cracks are serious, and repairs should be completed ASAP as they indicate a problematic structural issue with the house.
Vertical cracks are much easier to work with and are the least costly to repair. This is because a vertical crack, in most cases, is not related to the integrity of the structure. On the other hand, a horizontal crack is more expensive to repair because the integrity of the structure has now been affected. The repair may include a structural wooden/metal support wall in the interior, often seen with the use of 2x8s with braces, as well as a backfill of the foundation with uncrushed rock on the exterior to relieve the lateral pressure against the concrete wall.
Yes, in most cases, a crack can be repaired from the inside of the house with epoxy or polyurethane injections. Over time we have found that the success rate of exterior repairs with a properly installed membrane exceeds the injection technique. It is far more effective to prevent the water from getting into the interior wall in the first place than to try and stop it once it is already inside. However, in cases when excavation cannot be performed, interior repair may be the only feasible option.
