Before and After
Resolving Horizontal Cracking in a Berlin Center, Ohio Home
When a homeowner began to notice horizontal cracking in his foundation wall, he reached out to The Basement Guys to get their opinion for repair. During the estimate meeting, our team suggested installing CarbonArmor® straps to the wall. These straps are intended to prevent the cracking from growing any larger in size and to create a stable environment for the wall.
Our Basement Professionals went through each step to placing the straps. The wall was ground down to create space for the straps and they were sealed against the wall with high-strength epoxy. The system was installed perfectly and created a more stable wall that will not experience any further cracking in the future.

Basement Floor Cracks
Water can also rise directly through the porous concrete of your floor slab, a problem that's
exacerbated when there's a crack. When you have water coming through the floor, the first step

will help direct any water that comes through the crack into the drain and your sump pump.
Finally, we will backfill the crack with stone and cover it with fresh concrete to prevent
Basement Wall Cracks
The soil around your foundation is filled with water, and even the smallest crack will allow this
groundwater to seep into your basement. Much like with floor cracks, the first step to repairing
a leaky wall crack is installing one of our drainage systems. We then use an innovative
polyurethane sealant called FlexiSpan® to seal the crack. This flexible sealant will never dry
or crack and can flex to the natural movement of your foundation wall, ensuring a completely

A waterproof seal. Prevent future leaks with our basement window sealing
Window frames break down over time, creating separation and allowing water to seep past seals.
Once again, the first step for repair window leaks is a drainage system that funnels the water
to your sump pump. We will then create a small hole in the wall under the basement window with a
plastic fitting that directs any water into the drainage system. This is then sealed with a
polymer injection for a clean, waterproof finish.
