How to stop water from a leaking crack in my basement

leaking crack in basement

Traditionally, basement waterproofing always involved excavating the foundation; a costly undertaking indeed.  Today there are a number of ways to fix wet basements from within the basement itself – a much less expensive (and less destructive) proposition.

There are many ways to stop ground water from entering a finished basement through a leaking crack, but none of them are as simple as using our Epoxy Waterproofer.  Just brush it over a crack, allow it to set and you’re done, no chipping  and no patching. Wide cracks can be sealed by mixing clean silica sand into the epoxy to make an epoxy mortar that will stay in place while it cures.  Watch our video to see how simple it is.

Basement Waterproofing Made Easy

Basement Waterproofing with Epoxy Waterproofer

Our Epoxy Waterproofer is a basement waterproofing designed for leaking basemant walls and floors. Epoxy Waterproofer is a proven product that is brush or roller applied to the entire basement wall or floor or just to waterproof a leaking crack or a leaking tie hole or a junction between floor and wall.

Because basements are below ground level, they are prone to not only dampness, but also water run-off, which can damage the concrete walls. You may also find yourself facing problems with mold, mildew and a, unpleasant odor.  Epoxy Waterproofer is extremely effective in the basement where dampness and mild instances of water occur. For major issues, first remove the water from outside the home. Take proper steps to keep water away from the foundation which, may include re-routing gutter drains and steering runoff water away from the foundation.

Once cured it forms a 15 mil impervious and well bonded WATERPROOF film. The great part is that it has very little odor and does not contain any solvents. Our customers include waterproofing contractors who waterproof with sheet membrane on the exterior . These contractors warranty their work for 10 years, but if their work ever  leak during the warranty period, they do not excavate the exterior to repair their membrane. They fix the leaks with our Epoxy Waterproofer from the interior. Epoxy Waterproofer has an amazing track record at stopping interior leaks. Watch our video on how to use our Epoxy to waterproof a crack. For more info email answers@chargar.com or call  1-800-922-4623.

How to Repair Chatahoochie Stone Decks

stone deck The proper repair and maintenance of pebble stone decks is critical if you are planning on keeping your deck for a long time. Neglecting these decks is a sure path to future failure and disastrous results. Many of the calls that we take in our technical services department concerning stone decks are always at the point where the stones are loose and popping off. A good preventative program and not to loose stones is to seal the deck every 2 years. A good maintenance schedule is:

1. Wash the deck with 1 part of Fabulene biodegradable detergent cleaner and 1 part of bleach and 2 parts of hot water.

2. Use a spray bottle or pump sprayer to wet out the surface. Allow this mixture to saturate the surface for 5-10 minutes.

3. Rinse the detergent, bleach solution off the stones with a garden hose. Using a powerwasher can loosen stones, so don’t even try it.  For stubborn stains use a stiff broom to scrub stained surfaces and rinse with a garden hose.

4. Allow the stone deck to completely dry, generally 24- 48 hours depending on the air temperature and humidity.

5. If there are no repairs to be made now you are ready to seal the deck. Here is the tricky part. What do I seal the deck with? From experience, we have found that our 100% Epoxy Seal MV is the best, and the reason is that this product will bond the stones back down to the subsurface and to each other. Acrylic sealers don’t have the adhesive quality as 100% epoxies. Acrylic sealers make the surface shiny but offer no adhesion to the stones.

6. Solvent modified Epoxies also offer adhesion and do also hold the stones in place but these products don’t last as long as a 100% solids Epoxy. For more info call 1-800-922-4623 or go to www.chargar.com See our other post on how to repair a damaged stone deck. Written by: Giulio Fraenza
