The homeowner met with Donny, a certified inspector, who recommended that the FlexiSpan Crack Repair is installed.
The FlexiSpan Crack Repair is a permanent solution to a leaking crack in the wall of a poured foundation wall in the basement. The FlexiSpan Crack Repair starts with a bead of sealant to seal the crack. This is the common way to repair a leaking crack. The FlexiSpan Crack Repair goes a little further. After the bead of sealant seals the crack, we apply a FlexiSpan Foam Drain Strip. If there is any water that gets through the sealant, it will be wicked down into the drainage system below the repair. The next layer is a flexible, sealant overlay. This seals the complete repair and can flex up to 3/4" if there is further settling of the foundation. This repair also has a layer of BrightWall over it to cover the repair. BrightWall can also be used to cover the walls like typical paneling, but the advantage of this paneling is that it can drain wall leaks down into the drainage system below.
