Home › Crack Injections

Cracks that occur in crawl spaces or other concrete surfaces need to be filled in order to maintain the home's structure and prevent water leaks. That's why the team at Bay Area Underpinning offers the perfect concrete repair solution - crack injections. We use epoxy and polyurethane injection resins to seal cracks and prevent air leaks in your crawl space walls. Both materials are designed to fill in cracks while creating a secure barrier around your home. This method also prevents water and insects from entering through small cracks.

Polyurethane Foam Injection: A Concrete Crack Repair in San Jose, CA

Polyurethane foam injection is designed to fill active leaking walls and wider cracks. It also helps seal pipes, fill in voids and other penetrations. After polyurethane foam is injected into the affected concrete, the foam expands inside the crack. It creates a barrier against water entry so it will remain outside of the crawl space wall. Because polyurethane foam is flexible, it can move with the walls during soil expansion and contraction.

Polyurethane foam injection offers the following benefits:

  • Eliminates leaks
  • Lowers humidity levels
  • Reduces water vapor permeation
  • Blocks air leaks
  • Seals foundation walls
  • Can be completed from inside
  • Expands 20 times greater than original volume
