This method is used to stop water ingress through cracks in below grade, floor, vertical and overhead concrete repairs, and will repair all different sizes of slab depth. Urethane injection is the ideal repair method for water ingress in cracks smaller than 1/8 of an inch because of the Urethane resin's ability to migrate and fill all tributaries (micro cracks) that exist within the larger crack itself. We achieve this by strategically placing ports (mechanical packers) along the crack and injecting a flexible urethane resin under high pressure, filling and sealing the crack. This method is perfect for parkades, residential/commercial foundations, or any below grade concrete under hydrostatic pressure.
Repair by epoxy injection can restore structural integrity and eliminate moisture in cracks. This method is ideal for repairing cracks smaller than 1/8 of an inch. Cracks can be injected from one or both sides of a concrete member, vertical and overhead. Similar to urethane injection, epoxy injection allows the resin to migrate and fill all tributaries (micro cracks) using high-pressure injection to restore structural integrity.
This method/product is used to stop water ingress through cracks larger than 1/8 of an inch, and cracks that have had previous work/repairs done to them. The product is great for repairing areas such as cold joints (where floor slab meets wall) that require repair from the interior of a structure where access is limited from the exterior (basements). This product comes with a great limited warranty of 25 years, offering piece of mind that your repair will last.
We are BASF factory certified joint expansion joint installers! An expansion joint or movement joint is an assembly designed to safely absorb the heat-induced expansion and contraction of construction materials, to absorb vibration, to hold parts together, or to allow movement due to ground settlement or earthquakes. They are commonly found between sections of buildings, bridges, sidewalks, railway tracks, piping systems, ships, and other structures.
Where concrete has deteriorated due to the rebar/steel inside rusting, causing delamination, chloride contamination and the structural failure. The areas of chloride-contaminated or deteriorated concrete are systematically removed, the corroded steel is cleaned, and the area is repaired with materials similar to those originally used. The objective is to repair the area to a standard equal to that found in parts of the structure that are not contaminated. The objective is to reinstate the original characteristics of the structure.
Physical barriers such as waterproof overlays or membranes halt or slow the process of deterioration in high traffic areas, and are extremely affective in parkades, concrete patios, walkways and suspended slabs. One of the most critical challenges facing concrete structures today is moisture penetration. Unprotected structures suffer from water-induced damage, including deterioration and corrosion caused by alkalis, salts, acids and mold. Liquid-applied high performance membranes offer long-lasting protection against the most damaging conditions.
Building faces, concrete slabs, and pipelines expand and contract due to warming and cooling from seasonal variation, or due to other heat sources. Removing and replacing old/failing caulking will create a watertight seal in expansion joints and control joints.

Waterproofing your elevator pit is essential to maintaining its safety and its ability to properly function. Because the elevator pit is lower and more likely to be in the water table, damage caused by leaks in the foundation are often present.
We have a number of solutions available to seal leaking cracks, remove standing water and prevent rusting. Our tried and true methods range from injecting a hydro active grout, applying waterproof coatings to the joints and interior surface of the pit, and coating any rusted steel to prevent further contamination.
