How Can Water Enter My Basement?

The Crack Wizard gets asked this question quite often.

The answer is, water can only enter a basement one of three ways. One: Through the wall. Two: Up from the floor. Three: Over the top of the foundation.

Every home’s foundation is different, and some homes experience none of these symptoms, while other homes experience all three simultaneously.

Why is this information important to consumers? Because the source of the moisture should determine the proper repair.

For homeowners with cracks and leaks in the wall, the most permanent and cost-effective repair is to have the crack(s) pressure injected with either an epoxy or urethane resin. If your water is coming up from the floor and/or where the floor and wall meet, what you’re experiencing is hydrostatic pressure. Depending on the frequency and severity of the water problem, a sump-pump and/or sub-slab drain tile system may be the answer. But before committing to such an invasive, disruptive, and expensive repair, you may want to check your drainage and grading first. In many cases, addressing improper water run-off is a logical and effective first step to correcting a hydrostatic pressure water problem. And finally, if water is making its way over the top of the foundation, this is also attributed to exterior factors that could be corrected with proper and regular maintenance.

The Crack Wizard sees basement water problems every day.

How Do I Know If My Foundation Crack Is A Structural Concern?

This is a commonly asked question by homeowners who may be concerned that their crack is more than ‘just a crack’.

 Adding to the confusion could be the quantity of varying ‘solutions’ homeowners receive from foundation repair contractors.

And while most foundation wall cracks pose no threat to the structural integrity of a foundation, there are definitely foundation problems that warrant extensive, structural repairs.

 The Crack Wizard has twenty-plus years experience in assessing structural symptoms, and can quickly and accurately recommend a means of repair to solve your foundation related problem.

But for homeowners who want to know what they can do themselves, here are a few quick and easy tips that can help ease concerns about whether your foundation problem is minor or more involved:

 One.  Are your doors and windows closing properly?  Regardless of what you’ve read or what you’ve been told, your foundation is probably in adequate shape if you can close your doors and windows without noticing gaps or ‘sticking’.  Two.  If you have foundation wall cracks, rub your hand over the crack(s) to feel for any significant displacement.  Meaning, is one side of the foundation crack higher or lower than the other? Typically, cracks that don’t have noticeable displacement can usually be pressure injected, and may not require structural repairs.  Three.  Do you notice any cracking on the exterior of your foundation?  Homeowners with brick exteriors should not be alarmed by ‘stairstep pattern’ cracks through the mortar joints.  However, if homeowners notice vertical cracks through the actual bricks themselves, that could be a symptom that requires structural attention.

If you do notice symptoms that could be indicative of structural issues, consider contacting a Structural Engineer to objectively evaluate your foundation BEFORE getting bids.

Should I Fix My Crack If I’m Selling My House?

Should I Fix My Crack If I’m Selling My House? Yes!

If you are planning on selling your home, it is required by law that you disclose any known defects.

Since foundation cracks are one of the most common repair items noticed during the listing process, The Crack Wizard strongly advises having your foundation cracks corrected prior to putting your home on the market.

The Crack Wizard understands the concerns facing both sellers and buyers when it comes to foundation related symptoms, and we can minimize stress and provide peace of mind when it comes to repairing foundation cracks. Because we work closely with many top Realtors and home inspectors, The Crack Wizard knows the significance of providing timely, affordable repairs backed by our Lifetime of the Structure ‘Crack Wizard Warranty’.

The Crack Wizard Lifetime Warranty guarantees our repairs against future leakage for as long as your home is standing.

Plus, The Crack Wizard Warranty Certificate is named by the property address, so the repairs are covered under warranty by whoever is living in the home at any given time. And as an added feature, The Crack Wizard Warranty is transferable at no charge, regardless of changes in ownership. There are never re-inspection or transfer fees with The Crack Wizard. More importantly, by not making the repairs before the house is put on the market, sellers make themselves vulnerable to unnecessary bids that could cost thousands of dollars.

By proactively addressing foundation cracks before a house is put on the market, you will eliminate the risk of buyers and/or inspectors noting symptoms that could disrupt an otherwise smooth transaction.

Finally, for additional savings, ask about our ‘Realtor Discount Program’ if you got our name from your real estate agent. The Crack Wizard says…”For A Crack In Your Wall, Give The Wizard A Call”.

Will Repairing A Foundation Crack Cause Other Foundation Cracks To Develop?

No.  When foundation cracks in a poured concrete wall are repaired by The Crack Wizard, any ground water that would make its way through the crack will just migrate in to the earth.

 And while there is logic to the conventional wisdom of “water finding the path of least resistance”, the reality is,  a properly repaired foundation crack will not cause other cracks to develop.

For homeowners with common foundation wall cracks that are not indicative of structural defects, the best repair option is to have the crack pressure-injected with a urethane resin or epoxy resin.

 Once a crack is pressure-injected with an epoxy resin or urethane resin, the  foundation crack becomes impermeable to water penetration.  Ground water that would typically end up on a basement wall or floor will ultimately evaporate in to the ground, as opposed to “creating other cracks”.   One of the common misconceptions about foundation cracks is that they are caused by lateral water pressure against the foundation.

However, most foundation wall cracks are caused by the natural shrinkage and/or settlement (albeit normal settlement) of a poured concrete foundation, and not undue water pressure against the foundation.

 Poured concrete foundations are inherently susceptible to cracking, and treating a foundation crack will NOT cause other cracks to develop.  Finally, many foundation cracks develop in the ‘weak points’ of a basement, such as corners of windows and off the corners of support beams.

These cracks are common, minor and can be permanently and affordably repaired by The Crack Wizard.

 The Crack Wizard’s exclusively formulated sealants and resins provide clean, odorless repairs that are backed by our Lifetime ‘Crack Wizard’ Warranty.

How Much Does It Cost To Repair A Foundation Crack?

The cost to repair a typical foundation crack is between $300-$400.

Need a ‘concrete price’ on a foundation crack?

 The Crack Wizard would like the answers to just a few questions:  One, is your foundation wall made of poured concrete?  Two, has your crack ever been patched, repaired or injected before?  Three, approximately how long, in linear feet, is your foundation crack?  And finally, how many cracks need to be repaired? (For homeowners with multiple cracks, the price-per-crack becomes incrementally lower.)

Based on these answers, The Crack Wizard can provide homeowners, Realtors, inspectors and contractors an immediate and accurate repair price.

 And for those customers who are on-the-go, The Crack Wizard can submit your quoted price via email or text message.  Obviously, we always like to assess foundation symptoms in-person, but for those of you who need the information quickly, The Crack Wizard will help.  Further, The Crack Wizard repair work comes with a Lifetime of the Structure ‘Crack Wizard’ Warranty, which is transferable at no charge, regardless of changes in ownership.
