Exterior Crack Repair in Stratford & Other Areas in Ontario

Exterior Crack Repair

Depending on the age of your poured concrete foundation and the severity of the foundation or basement wall crack, we may recommend an Exterior Crack Repair as the best method of waterproofing. This treatment requires excavation down to the weeping tile so that we can also check the weepers. Of course this only tells us their condition at that location. If a problem with the weepers is found, a weeper flush may be required. In some cases, a video inspection is required for visual confirmation.


If the problem is confirmed to be plugged weepers, flushing is only a temporary fix. A permanent fix requires identifying how the tile became plugged and correcting it to prevent future blockages from occurring.

It’s rare for an Exterior Crack Repair to fail rapidly. Rather, the material injected into the crack will begin to weaken over time from the movement of the foundation. By cross-stitching concrete crack repairs with carbon fibre staples, this slow creep is eliminated and the long-term performance of the repair is guaranteed.
