Sealing a Frankfort, MI Basement Pipe Crack
The pipe exiting the basement wall in the before photo had been leaking and filling up the cinder blocks with water. Our crews patch up leaks like these with the sentry seal sealant. It’s a thick, waterproof membrane that protects against groundwater. The pipe led water away from the basement to an outlet in the yard. But with a leak in the wall, the water that should have been pumped out of the basement just ended up seeping back through the walls. Because the sentry seal membrane is used on wall cracks that are below ground, the crew normally needs to excavate the soil around the leak. However, in this case, the soil had already been excavated. As you can see in the after photo, the crew even used sentry seal over the pipe to make sure that neither it nor the wall would leak again.
Michigan Style Basement Gets New Level of Support in Frankfort, MI
Brandon called us to take a look at a large diagonal crack in his Michigan-style basement. His concern was that the crack would become more severe as the wall slowly failed. If left alone, Brandon was very right. Cracks like these don't just get better. It was only going to get worse unless something was done.
The best solution in this case was a series of 3 PowerBraces. These zinc-coated steel I-beams help to support the home above and evenly distribute the weight that they're supporting. They extend from the floor to ceiling where they connect to the joists at the top of the wall. What makes these beams unique from other I-beams is that they feature a tightening system at the top which allows the homeowner or our service team to possibly straighten and improve the condition of the wall over time. When we fix walls, we fix them with solutions that are intended to be a "once and for all" fix. Brandon won't be losing any sleep over this crack in the years to come.
