Leaking crack repair with Epoxy Waterproofer

Leaking Basement crack?

Epoxy Waterproofer contains 100% solids and is applied from a thin brush application up to a 1/8th inch thick cladding capable of withstanding hydrostatic pressure and stopping radon gas migration in a leaking basement.  Cracks and patches can be repaired and made waterproof by adding clean silica sand to Epoxy Waterproofer.

Know the difference between “sealed” and “waterproof”.  Epoxy Waterproofer is a specially formulated, heavy bodied, thermo setting, self curing epoxy that hardens to a ceramic like, non-porous, clear, impermeable and waterproof film. This is a 2 part 100% solids epoxy that cures clear or can be pigments to a variety of colors by adding a color pack.  Use on interior/exterior foundations, precast concrete tanks, stone, potable water tanks, ponds, waterfalls, pools etc.

Stain Resistant Masonry Waterproofing

 

 

 

 

The Chargar Corporation of Hamden, Connecticut has introduced a new and unique masonry sealer that not only repels water but prevents staining on surfaces to which it is applied to because of its patented stain blocker. It resists motor oil, transmission fluids, diesel fuel, wine, ketchup, grease from grilling foods, soft drinks. Many  sealers are available which do a great job repelling water and moisture intrusion but fail at blocking the buildup of oil and staining type soils. Ultimate Stain Repellent has unique qualities, it doesn’t change the appearance of the surface and is not a film forming type sealer.

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.
