Epoxy resins are special chemical formulations that are capable of converting to a solid form when mixed with a curing agent. When injected into foundation wall cracks epoxy resin provides a strong bond and completely fills the crack. Epoxy injection is an economical method of repairing non-moving cracks in concrete walls, slabs, columns and piers and is capable of restoring the concrete to its pre-cracked strength. In fact, in its solid form it can be up to 4 times as strong as the surrounding concrete!

Before performing an epoxy injection it is important to determine what caused the crack. If the source of cracking is not identified and remedied, the concrete may crack again. Contact us to learn more or to schedule a free estimate.
