Foundation cracks occur during the curing process of the poured foundation and settlement along with movement in the earth. Many newer homes have water leaking in the basement as result of these cracks in foundations. It is because OBC only requires a simple tar coating and dimple membrane to be applied to the foundation wall. Once the tar dry’s up a couple years later, water is able to seep into any new or existing foundation cracks. This also applies to older homes but some of the added pressures are due to age, frost, and shifting. Our northern climate reeks havoc on our best investment.
We use Blueskin, which guarantee’s a dry basement.
