Repair Leaky Floor Cracks

Basement floor cracks can be worrisome – especially when water leaks up and in.

The good news, though, is that basement floor cracks can be quickly and effectively repaired, and water leakage can be prevented via a proper perimeter drainage system.

Take the first step toward fixing your basement floor cracks by getting in touch with us today.

How to Waterproof a Leaky Floor Crack

Most often, a perimeter drainage system will solve the issue by ensuring that water doesn’t reach the cracked floor area. However, in some circumstances, a lateral drainage solution may be required.

This solution is typically installed via three steps:

  1. Install the perimeter drainage system. Although not directly correlated to floor cracks, a perimeter drainage system can go a long way toward preventing water from reaching the crack in the first place, helping to eliminate the problem.
  2. Starting at the crack, install a drainage channel. If direct drainage is needed, the next step is to remove part of the basement floor and install a line of PVC underneath leading to the sump pump. Pitched correctly, this PVC line will carry any water entering the drain back toward the sump pump.
  3. Restore the floor. With the drain installed, the final step is to backfill the renovated area with stone and fresh concrete for a refinished, clean, and professional look.

Additional Floor Crack Considerations

Whatever solution is required, make sure that you don’t allow your leaking floor crack to go unattended. Over time, this can lead to more severe problems.

Additionally, make sure to remove any carpet or furniture from the area around a floor crack while it is still leaking. This can result in mold growth and can ruin valuable items.

“First of all, I don’t usually do reviews; however, I was so impressed with the guys at Mission Home Services that I felt the need to let others know. We had them out to inspect our basement and give us an estimate on waterproofing it for future renovations. The representatives gave us a great education on not only how a basement leaks, but also how ours was leaking and the correct method to fix it. We highly recommend this company!”
