Is Epoxy Resin Injection an Effective Foundation Crack Repair Method?

When a property owner notices a crack in their concrete, it can be an unsettling sight to see. Immediate concerns may be about the cost of replacing the concrete, or safety for visitors to their property. But the solution for your foundation crack repair may be less overwhelming than you think!

Structural epoxy can be used to weld together cracks between two pieces of concrete. By injecting an epoxy resin into the cracks, the concrete can essentially be “glued” back together, sealing the damage and preventing it from becoming a larger issue. Some of the benefits of epoxy injection for your concrete repair are:

• The process is non-invasive
• Epoxy is stronger than concrete
• It is more cost-effective than replacing the concrete

Epoxy resin can be used to repair most common structural elements, including support columns, slabs, foundation walls, and more. This solution provides a full structural repair while also keeping unwanted moisture out. It is important, however, to make sure you address your foundation crack repair concerns as soon as you notice them because the damage that is not addressed can worsen and eventually require a more extensive and more expensive repair.
