We stop leaks in concrete foundation walls and stabilize concrete block walls. In concrete foundations, we inject cracks with a urethane from the inside goes all the way to the outside of the wall. The urethane remains slight soft so it continues to seal the crack as the building moves. We stabilize concrete block walls by epoxying carbon fiber-Kevlar straps to the walls. Our work comes with a life-time guarantee.
