When asked out professional opinion based on over 30 years of experience, Akton Injection will usually recommend an exterior crack injection given the space to do it. While more intrusive, an injection done on the exterior of your edifice combined with proper drainage sloping by your landscape contractor, will prevent water pressure against the foundation wall and provide the highest degree of protection possible.

Concrete Epoxy Injection is a system for welding cracks back together using an Epoxy Resin. The resin restores the original strength of the concrete. Structural restoration of concrete by epoxy injection is very often the only alternative to complete replacement. Epoxy injection protects rebar and stops water leakage.

Polyurethanes are fast-setting, elastomeric and most effective in sealing and waterproofing a crack that will be undergoing slight movement from seasonal temperature changes. One of the determining factors in deciding to use Polyurethane is if there is concern about leakage from the back of a crack. Another benefit of their fast setting foam attributes is that it expands and hardens within minutes of injection in the crack. This reduces the likelihood of it flowing out the back. While adding almost no structural strength, most residential applications don't require it. Read more about this method on our Polyurethane Injection page.
