We Offer Residential and Commercial Water Leak Seal Solutions


What Causes Water Leaks In My Concrete?

Over time, aging concrete naturally decays. This process can happen faster when faced with extreme hot or cold temperatures.

Loose/unstable soil are also huge factors due to erosion, freeze and thaw cycles, poor compaction (decrease in soil volume/porosity), and soil decay/decomposition, and composition- the proper balance of mineral pieces, matter, air and water. When soil is unstable under a home, it fails to support the weight of the home and concrete, which in turn causes cracking and many other detrimental issues.

Poorly constructed homes can also lead to these cracks in the concrete if the initial building process of structure was not properly carried out.

How Does Polyurethane Foam Injection Seal Leaks?

Concrete can be permanently repair with polyurethane foam injection by using a 2-part solution that is injected into the affected concrete area. After the solution is injected, the pressure forces the material through all cracks, joints, and defective areas. The polyurethane foam solution then reacts rapidly to form a watertight seal in those areas. It takes about 30 minutes to cure, and as mentioned is resistant to ANY water entering that area again.

What Kind Of Water Leaks Can Polyurethane Foam Fix?

Whether it be a basement leak, hairline crack, a foundation leak that is gushing, or other defect- it can be sealed with our hydrophobic polyurethane foam products.

If you are experiencing water leaks throughout your home/basement or even your place of business, give us a call for a free on-site estimate for a solution to this issue.

Cracked Concrete - Repair or Replace?

Concrete is all around us. Whether it be driveways, patios, sidewalks, pool decks, garage floors, foundation slabs, or even the roads we drive on..it is a big part of our lives even if we don’t even realize it. Concrete undoubtedly has longevity, but over time it can buckle, crack, or lift. This typically happens due to soil erosion or compacted soil (leading to sinking, lifting, settling) , or improper water drainage which is a large issue for sidewalks/walkways, swimming pool decks, garage floors, slabs, and floors in general.

Typically when a homeowner is faced with such concrete damage, a lot of individuals assume that replacement is the only solution to the problem. To make things worse, homeowners see the price of concrete replacement and are stunned. (It’s not cheap, to say the least).

This is where Foundation Repair of Arkansas comes in—

Ceiling Cracks - What's Normal, What's Not?

First and foremost, if there are cracks in your ceiling, the best solution is to schedule a free in-home inspection with a reliable contractor. The contractor will check the crack to determine its severity and what steps may need to be taken. Many times a crack is nothing to worry about. Our contractors offer free inspections and in-home estimates. Contact Foundation Repair of Arkansas to speak with a contractor to learn more about your ceiling cracks.

TYPES OF CEILING CRACKS

  1. Fine, Straight Crack: These cracks can be caused when a drywall joint wasn't properly taped or mudded. The tape may not be sticking to the drywall and so a "crack" appears where the edge of the tape is. You can either ignore this or apply a small bit of drywall compound to the loose tape and stick it back on.

  2. Discolored Crack: If the crack is yellow or brown, it is most likely being caused by a water leak. Once the leak is repaired, you can re-tape the drywall, making it look like new again. If the drywall is swollen or soft, you will want to replace the section.

  3. Small Spiderweb Cracks: A thinned drywall compound is used to make a textured ceiling. However, if the compound was applied too thickly, it can crack in all directions. You can cover the cracks with a layer of thin drywall compound or you can sand off the old compound and reapply it.

  4. Horizontal Crack Between the Ceiling and Wall: This may be caused by something called "truss uplift". The trusses holding up your roof are designed to move a little bit to absorb changes caused by temperature and humidity. The truss may move upward, lifting the ceiling with it. It's not going to cause any structural problems, but if you want to repair it, you will probably want to hire a professional.

  5. Cracks in Plaster Ceilings: If you live in a home with plaster ceilings and you begin to see cracks, they may be caused by moisture and/or movement. If they are small, you can repair them with new plaster. If they are bigger and sections of plaster are falling, you will probably have to remove the plaster and install with a drywall section.

  6. Large Cracks and a Bowed Ceiling: If your ceiling is sagging, you need to have the problem addressed. If something heavy is above the ceiling, the ceiling can sag. You will need to move the heavy object. Other causes may be the removal of a load-bearing wall or damage to the support structure. This type of issue will require an inspection by a structural engineer or contractor. This is a situation that needs to be repaired quickly, before it gets worse.
